    How are combination jumps scored

    Trying to figure this out by looking at my Skater Grrrl's protocol sheet.

    For instance Axel-Loop-Loop has base score of 2.31, but looking at the base score of each jump individually doesn't add up.

    Thanks for any math help!

    The base value of those jumps added together is 2.1 - but an extra 10% is added to jump elements done in the second half of the program, so if she did it after the half way mark, 2.1 + 0.21 = 2.31.

    If the protocol sheet has an x after the jump value, it is after the half way mark.

    The base values, according to the USFSA's Singles SOV Table are:
    Axel(1.1) + Loop(0.5) + Loop(0.5) = 2.1 base value

    There's probably an "x" after the base value of the combination jump on the protocol sheet.
    That means the jump was done after the halfway point of the program, earning a 10% bonus.

    Axel(1.1) + Loop(0.5) + Loop(0.5) = 2.1 * 1.10 = 2.31

    Thank you!

    I never even wondered what the "x" was. (Figure Skater Parent Fail.)
