I was told that there was a change to the level 8 vault and that a yurchenko can no longer be done in level 8 is this true.
I think the proposal was to do a Yurchenko timer to a mat stack as a way to build a better foundation for doing them in Level 8 instead of just having the jump from doing a FHS to being able to flip a Yurchenko.I was surprised yurchenkos made it down to 8. I don't think it's going to 7 any time soon. And I've seen enough scary yurchenkos to really be okay with that. Tsuk timers would be another story.
Does this address it? Never totally certain of the vocabulary.layout step out was changed to a D?

The same technical committee report I referenced in the post above mentioned this. Here's the explanation:I think the proposal was to do a Yurchenko timer to a mat stack as a way to build a better foundation for doing them in Level 8 instead of just having the jump from doing a FHS to being able to flip a Yurchenko.
Discussion regarding adding a Round-off entry vault timer onto mats stacked as high as the vault table to be a competitive choice. The committee concurred that this was impractical, especially in a competitive environment. They concluded that Round-off entry vault training should occur over years and doing a handspring allows the coaches to be able to spend the time on Yurchenko drills without losing quality of the handspring. A motion was made with no second. No action was taken.
