There are revised "Additional 'A' Value Part Skills for Xcel Bars, Beam and Floor Charts" posted on the USA Gymnastics website. One of the main reasons for the update was to include the additional skills that receive an 'A' VP in Platinum and Diamond that do not have a number in the Xcel Code. Also, the bridge kickover and head-kickover were removed from the Beam chart because these are now skills in the Code (7.106)
That same page has links to the latest FAQ as well as the new Xcel New Element Evaluation Form.
On another topic - on Bars, please remember only one cast must meet the division SR cast angle requirement. This cast would receive VP credit and fulfill the SR. If there is another cast (in a different connection) in the routine that is smaller than the SR cast angle but meets the division requirement for an 'A' cast, this second cast will also receive VP credit. These angles are listed in the Code and on the "Additional 'A' VP Bars Chart.

I hope everyone has a great State Meet!
