    Level 6 acro series - Deductions

    Thank you. I am guessing this is what happened, based on the lower score this time. Thinking at the the previous meet that they didn't get the additional 0.5 deduction for an actual spot, just the coach on the floor.

    Level 6 acro series - Deductions

    I have twin girls, both competing Level 6 and both struggling to overcome back tumbling mental blocks. They competed Platinum last season without back tumbling in their floor routines.
