2015 GREENWICH TOWN COMPETITION UPDATE

 

Coaches:

 We have identified an inconsistency in the 2014-15 USFSA Basic Skills Competition Manual concerning the Basic 8 Program Elements  – Waltz Jump criteria and want to call your attention to a clarification we have received from Erin Schopf, USFSA Basic Skills Program Manager.

 She has stated that “For your Greenwich Town Competition, please include the verbiage “from a standstill, or a back edge entry*”.  It has been confirmed that the Teaching Tips Manual and the Basic Skills Competition Manual were not consistent for the 2014-2015 season.
