The Compulsories

MOVES
NO B – JURY!!!!
Competitors may attempt to accumulate points in the Ball, Ring, and Club
Compulsory Competitions. You do not have to attempt all the moves. You
only get points for the moves you attempt and successfully execute and you are only allowed ONE ATTEMPT per move. There are no deductions for drops, moving the feet, etc. Moves will be credited if the form is consistent
with the judges’ expectation of a successful execution of the move. For
example, if you attempt a 180, and walk halfway around while continuing to throw (and in the most extreme cases, making the last throw with your arm behind you after you’ve completed a 180 degree meandering) then you may not receive points for that move since the form was not demonstrative of proper technique. Proper technique is defined as the technique used which conserves the most energy while providing the most consistently successful and aesthetically pleasing results.
