I have a child that came from a anoother gym who is deathly afraid of flyaways.

As of right now she is doing for level 7 on high bar a giant into a hop 1.2 turn into a front flyaway. I know this in cures an extra swing deduction.
I am hoping to teach her the front where she would swing down from her giant and drive her heels upward and flip forward. all these I see done on you tube are done from a toe on or late toe on . Can it be done out of a swing down from a giant?
If so how do we proceed? No pit but porta pits availible. I love drawings of drills as well as videos if anyone is so incllinde :)

What you describe doesn't sound safe to me for a level 7 (or at all really, I don't know). The toe front is also a C so it can only be performed at level 9 and 10 now. Also, in level 7, I am almost positive that front swing before front flyaway does NOT incur an extra swing deduction. If she can do front flyaway why not stick to this? She can do a cross arm swing into mixed grip into front flyaway also.

I found the reference for the L7 front flyaway clarification: Connie Maloney's rule change notes from last season. The clarification states (Level 7 ONLY):

"No penalty for extra swing will be applied if a counter swing is performed prior to salto forward (front flyaway) dismounts. (#8.107 or 8.207)"

These notes can be found at www.ilnawgj.com

Edit: The deduction that might like apply is for a fwd/bwd swing below horizontal (.1)

I think the OP is talking about a Comaneci dismount with no twist. Like here: Toe Front Dismount Off Bars - YouTube.
Right...this is valued at a C last time I checked so it can only be performed in level 9 and 10. Giant hop half, front swing, front flyaway is acceptable in level 7. In level 8 she can probably only do a cross arm swing into mixed grip...I'm blanking on any other way to get into front flyaway without deduction in level 8.

i'm blanking cause i still don't know what the original poster is talking about.

and gymdog, i'm blanking on the "giant hop half, front swing, front flyaway".

i understand giant swing towards the low bar and then Cal hop in the handstand, then front flyaway.

help me out here...:)

and a comaneci is a c.

Low swing half (I presume)...like swing horizontal and hop hands to turn around (level 5 dismount but turning the post arm hand to hold on), swing forward (ok in level 7), swing back to front flyaway. It's probably not a true hop but either way if the swing goes to horizontal it should not technically get an execution deduction (for a level 7 this might be tough though w/ legs together...but it's possible and obviously better than not doing the dismount).

In level 8 the dismount in the video will get a .5 deduction.

In level 8 also I guess you could do cast and turn one hand, then the other to undergrip, and swing down into a front flyaway (no hop because cali hop is a C). But in order to giants and get into the cast handstand you'd have to do giant low 1/2 kip cast handstand, turn, turn, swing down front flyaway.
