Mine did a RO-BHS-BLO and then a punch front. We saw some girls do a FHS-RO-BT but I don't recall many more variations than that...

There are many options. The requirements are:

SR #1—One (1) acro series min. three (3) directly connected—Two (2) with flight

Some passes that meet this requirement:

RO BHS Back Tuck
RO BHS Back Layout
FHS Step Out FHS Front Tuck
Front Tuck Step Out, RO, Back Tuck

SR #2—One (1) salto or aerial acro element (BWD/FWD/SWD) Isolated or in 2nd different connection

Some common ways to fulfill this are:

Front Tuck
FHS Front Tuck
Front Pike
FHS Front Pike
FHS Front Layout
Side Aerial
RO Back Tuck

Mine developed a pretty severe back tumbling mental block right after Level 5. She ended up to a FHS stepout FHS RO. I think that it quite unusual and probably not generally recommended but she scored decently with it- and was WAY less stressed. Raenndrops on this site made the suggestion and I am so thankful.

DD did a RO WHIP BHS BT in 6. She may have done a layout at a meet or two, I honestly don't remember! The whip was a fun addition though and we never saw others doing it.
