Please do not forget to refer to general rules related to Infringements


Performance Requirements for Verticals

  • The Sidelines and Ring apply.
  • During each Vertical (not including the Compulsory Transition), each Performer will cross a Sideline four (4) times.
  • Any Vertical starts and ends in a head-down orientation with each Performer on their side of the Centreline. During a Vertical, the Performers may partially cross the Centreline, but must finish completely on the correct side of the Centreline.
  • Apart from the Compulsory Transition to any Vertical, Performers must fly around the Ring, completely clear of the Ring. The Performers must completely cross a Sideline on each half of the Vertical.
  • All 180° and 360°, head-up and head-down pirouettes, and all half barrel rolls must rotate away from the Start Sideline.
  • All 180° and 360°, head-up and head-down pirouettes must be performed with all parts of the body completely above the Ring Plane.
  • All half barrel rolls must be performed with all parts of the body completely under the Ring Plane and as described in Addendum B.

Infringements Applicable to the Transition from any Snake

  • If the Compulsory Transition to the Vertical from the Snake is not performed correctly, a five (5) second penalty will apply.

Infringments Applicable to Verticals

  • At the beginning and the end of the Vertical, if each Performer is not on their side of the Centreline, a five (5) second penalty applies.
  • If any Performer flies any Vertical Pattern differently from that which is described, (e.g., Performers not pirouetting in the correct direction, etc.) a five (5) second penalty applies.
  • If a Sideline is not completely crossed, a five (5) second penalty applies.
  • Apart from the Compulsory Transition to any Vertical, no part of any Performer's body may be visible through the Ring. If any part of a Performer's body is visible through the Ring, a five (5) second penalty applies.

Performance Requirements and Infringements Applicable to V-2 Butterfly

  • The Centreline applies.
  • Each Performer must remain on his/her side of the Centreline when performing the half back loops (from head-down to head-down) and will only cross the Centreline two (2) times when flying over the Ring. Any infringement will lead to a five (5) second penalty.

D4W VERTICALS

Compulsory Transition from Any Head-down Snake to Any Vertical (D4W)

While remaining head-down throughout the Compulsory Transition, P#1, followed by P#2 through P#4, must cross the Centreline and then the Start Sideline before starting any Vertical. P#1 and P#3 must continue across the Centreline again before starting any Vertical.

Compulsory Transition from Any Head-up Snake to Any Vertical (D4W)

While remaining head-up throughout the Compulsory Transition, P#1 and P#3 must cross the Centreline. When crossing through the Sidelines, each Performer transitions to head-down in a half inface Reverse Eagle before starting any Vertical.

V-1 Back Layout (D4W)

While head-down, the Performers separate into two (2) pairs. P#1 and P#2 will be the leading pair and P#3 and P#4 will be the following pair. Each pair, one after the other, flies forward over the Ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle passing under the Ring to head-up. Next, each pair, one after the other, flies backward over the Ring and performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

V-2 Butterfly with Bottom Loops (D4W)

While head-down, the Performers separate into two (2) pairs: P#1 and P#2 will be the leading pair and P#3 and P#4 will be the following pair. Each pair, one after the other, flies forward, with the two (2) Performers in the pair crossing each other, over the Ring. Then each pair, one after the other, performs one-half outface Eagle with one-half back loop passing under the Ring to head-down. When initiating the half back loop each Performer must be on their side of the Centreline. This sequence is performed twice.

V-3 Classic (D4W)

While head-down, the Performers separate into two (2) pairs. P#1 and P#2 will be the leading pair and P#3 and P#4 will be the following pair. While head-down and flying over the Ring, each Performer in the pair performs a 180° pirouette. Each pair then performs one-half inface Eagle under the Ring to head-up. While head-up and flying over the Ring, each Performer in the pair performs a 180° pirouette. The pair performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

V-4 Half Barrel Roll 180° (D4W)

While head-down, the Performers separate into two (2) pairs. P#1 and P#2 will be the leading pair and P#3 and P#4 will be the following pair. Each pair, one after the other, flies forward over the Ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle with one-half barrel roll, passing under the Ring to head-up. The half barrel roll must rotate away from the Start Sideline and be initiated when the whole body is under the Ring Plane. As the pairs fly over the Ring, they perform a 180° pirouette. Each pair, one after the other, then performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

V-5 Head-down 360° (D4W)

While head-down, the Performers separate into two (2) pairs. P#1 and P#2 will be the leading pair and P#3 and P#4 will be the following pair. Each pair, one after the other, flies forward over the Ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle with one-half back loop passing under the Ring to head-down. As the pairs fly over the Ring, they perform a 360° pirouette and perform one-half outface Eagle with one-half back loop passing under the Ring to head-down. The 360° pirouette must rotate away from the Start Sideline.

V-6 Head-up 360° (D4W)

While head-down, the Performers separate into two (2) pairs. P#1 and P#2 will be the leading pair and P#3 and P#4 will be the following pair. Each pair, one after the other, flies forward over the Ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle passing under the Ring to head-up. Next, each pair flies backwards over the Ring and performs a 360° pirouette and then performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

D2W VERTICALS

Compulsory Transition from Any Head-down Snake to Any Vertical (D2W)

While remaining head-down throughout the Compulsory Transition, P#1, followed by P#2, must cross the Centreline and then the Start Sideline before starting any Vertical. P#1 must continue across the Centreline again before starting any Vertical.

Compulsory Transition from Any Head-up Snake to Any Vertical (D2W)

While remaining head-up throughout the Compulsory Transition, P#1 must cross the Centreline. When crossing a Sideline, each Performer transitions to head-down in a half inface Reverse Eagle before starting any Vertical.

V-1 Back Layout (D2W)

While head-down, the two (2) Performers fly this Pattern as a pair. The pair flies forwards over the Ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle passing under the Ring to head-up. Next, the pair flies backwards over the Ring and performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

V-2 Butterfly with Bottom Loops (D2W)

While head-down, the two (2) Performers fly this Pattern as a pair. The pair flies forward, with the two (2) Performers in the pair crossing each other, over the Ring. The pair then performs one-half outface Eagle with one-half back loop passing under the Ring to head-down. When initiating the half back loop each Performer must be on their side of the Centreline. This sequence is performed twice.

V-3 Classic (D2W)

While head-down, the two (2) Performers fly this Pattern as a pair. While head-down and flying over the Ring, each Performer in the pair performs a 180° pirouette. The pair then performs one-half inface Eagle under the Ring to head-up. While head-up and flying over the Ring, each Performer in the pair performs a 180° pirouette. The pair performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

V-4 Half Barrel Roll 180° (D2W)

While head-down, the two (2) Performers fly this Pattern as a pair. The pair flies forwards over the Ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle with one-half barrel roll, passing under the Ring to head-up. The half barrel roll must rotate away from the Start Sideline and be initiated when the whole body is under the Ring Plane. As they fly over the Ring, they perform a 180° pirouette. The pair then performs one-half inface Reverse Eagle under the Ring to head-down.

V-5 Head-down 360° (D2W)

While head-down, the two (2) Performers fly this Pattern as a pair. The pair flies forwards over the ring and then performs one-half outface Eagle with one-half back loop passing under the Ring to head-down. As they fly over the Ring, they perform a 360° pirouette and perform one-half outface Eagle with one-half back loop passing under the Ring to head-down.

V-6 Head-up 360° (D2W)
