Multi-piece clubs are made in both a thin European style or larger bodied American style and in various lengths, generally ranging from 19 to 21 inches to millimetres. The handles and bodies are typically wrapped with decorative plastics and tapes. The skills involved are apparatus mastery and body elements, Clubs are thrown from alternate hands; each passes underneath the other clubs and is caught in the opposite hand to the one from which it was thrown.
At its simplest, each club rotates once per throw, the handle moving down and away from the throwing hand at first. However, double and triple spins are frequently performed, allowing the club to be thrown higher for more advanced patterns and to allow tricks such as s channes to be performed underneath.

The ribbon may not stop moving or else points are taken off. Format[ edit ] This sport can be practiced individually or in sets. As for the sets, official competitions are currently composed of five-member teams. Gymnasts may have the same apparatus for all five or three with one and two with a different apparatus in this case the exercise is called "mixed". Originally six gymnasts composed a group, although around the s this could be even eight.
The duration of a group exercise should be two and a half minutes, one minute more than the individual one, which is one minute and a half. Scoring system[ edit ] In rhythmic gymnastics competitions exercises are evaluated by the following parameters which are reviewed every four years, the system defining the FIG Code of Points. Current score code[ edit ] In the current Code of Points the final score of a routine is the sum of the difficulty score and execution score.

There are also penalties, which are realized by subtracting points from the final note for certain specified mistakes made by the gymnast.
Difficulty consists of body difficulties jumps, balances and rotationsdance step combinations, dynamic elements with rotation commonly known as risksand apparatus difficulties. The difficulty score is evaluated during the routine without a pre-made difficulty sheet, unlike with previous Codes.
Each difficulty component has an assigned value, which accumulate throughout the routine, resulting in the final difficulty score. Execution is the degree to which the gymnast performs with aesthetic and technical perfection. This includes having harmony with the music and having masterful technique with the apparatus.
The execution score is composed of artistic faults and technical faults. Errors regarding the perfect model of conduct accumulate and are assigned specific penalty values, which ultimately are subtracted from the starting value an execution score of 10 represents a perfect execution equal to the model, without any error.
Penalties are taken by the time, line, and coordinator judges. The gymnast leaving the floor area. The apparatus leaving the floor area.

Evolution of the Code of Points[ edit ] In the decades of the 60s and 70s, the weight of the note fell most heavily on the artistic side, with little presence of difficulties. In the 80s new difficulty elements were introduced to give greater prominence to the flexibility and risk releases, and to encourage originality with emerging new devices.
Traditionally, untilfor the final of an exercise notes composition and performance, each of a maximum of 10 points in joint mode 20 in total they were added, and of five in individual mode 10 in total. The final mark then became an exercise obtained by adding notes difficulty, artistic and execution, each with a maximum value of 10 points, so the final score would be a maximum of 30 points except the Olympic cycle —where the final note would be a maximum of 20 points to join the average grade of difficulty and the artistic execution.
Here are each of the three notes under the Code as they were defined in the Olympic cycle — The difficulty score would be based on the technical merit of the assembly. This is divided into: The body difficulties were divided into four groups: The mandatory use of each, depend on the device that you were using.
Note apparatus difficulty would consider expertise with or without release, risk, pre-acrobatic elements and the originality of the apparatus. The artistic note is based, as the name suggests, on the artistic value of the assembly. The use of music, choreography used, the utilization of all practicable, the variety of movements of the gymnast and the variety of use of the device are taken into account.
Our family of four had the best time playing. Olivia was particularly cute because she is right on the verge of not being quite old enough for it, so it was funny to watch her learn to play. You could practically see the wheels spinning in her little head each time it was her turn. I had forgotten how good it was! Friday, December 28 Friday I still had a bit more clutter to clean up, and then I started all of the house cleaning, too — sweeping, mopping, etc. Jennifer Lopez is always fabulous in those romantic comedy types of movies.
We still have to get to that restaurant pretty early on Fridays to get in without waiting a long time, so we were done by 6: I ended up falling asleep on the couch as I often do but the kids loved it.
Once they were in bed, B and I watched the movie Book Club. Yes, he watched it with me! Such a good hubs. Saturday, December 29 By Saturday the house was still half decorated for Christmas and still half in shambles. I got the main tree down, I got all of the Christmas decorations cleaned out, organized, and put away, and I got the rest of the house swept, mopped, and vacuumed.
I was exhausted, but it was finally almost done. We had a huge spread of deliciousness for lunch, and then we opened presents. The rest of the evening was spent relaxing at home, and then B and I watched a Netflix original movie How it Ends. It was pretty good, but I was pretty disappointed with the ending. We spent the whole day playing I think Jacob put together every single Lego set he got!
I did a brain dump in my new planner and got to work crossing things off. I love a good productive day after spending so much time not being productive!
