Effective with the 2012-13 season, a double twist to a cradle (double down) no longer will be permitted in high school spirit (cheer, dance, drill, pom).
This significant risk minimization ruling was one of 19 rules changes approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations Spirit Rules Committee at its March 3-5 meeting in Indianapolis. The rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
With changes to Rules 2-8-9 and 2-10-2, a twist performed to a cradle must not involve more than one complete rotation except when dismounting to a cradle from a side-facing stunt or toss, which will permit 1¬º rotations. In these cases, the bases may make a one-fourth turn to catch the cradle.
Competitive spirit squads constitute the ninth-most popular activity for girls at the high school level, according to the 2010-11 High School Athletics Participation Survey conducted by the NFHS, with 96,718 participants nationwide. There are also 21,487 girls who participate in dance or drill teams, according to the same survey.
