My daugther is trying to move to Level 8 and is not comfortable with the BWO/BHS or the BHS/BHS on beam. Her coach has given her the option of a:

Roll backward to handstand (6.204-B) & BHS, Does this fullfill the Acrobatic series requirement?

Can a roll backward to handstand be part of the acro-series?

Thanks for your help?

I'm assuming this is a back extension roll and yes, back extension roll directly connected to a BHS fulfills the L8 acro series requirement. It is basically a similar sequence of skills to a BWO BHS. The L8 requirement is two (moving) acro elements, at least one with flight. The one with flight in this case is the BHS, and the back extension roll through HS satisfies the requirements for the other skill in the sequence.
