Just curious what is the skill level for a split leap if you are facing sideways, not looking at the end of the beam?

Anyone know??? If you do know, will the skill level still be the same when the new requirements take affect? I'm wondering for the new upcoming season.

My dd is working the split leap (sideways) with a straddle (sideways) for a jump series. I know the straddle is a C (under the new code), but wasn't sure about the split leap.

Thanks everyone... :D

A split jump sideways is a C right now, and I assume it will stay a C. I don't think anyone would do a split leap sideways (a leap takes off one foot; a jump takes off two)
