Table of Jumps

     The table below lists jumps in order of generally accepted difficulty factors described in the USFSA Rulebook.  In this chart, jumps at the same difficulty level are listed alphabetically. 

     Takeoff and Landing feet and edges are listed for Counter-Clockwise jumpers. The takeoff skating direction (forward and backward) and the edges (outside and inside) are the same for skaters who are perform their jumps in either CCW or CW skaters. Only the landing and takeoff feet are reversed.

     The feet noted are for skaters who perform their jumps in the conventional CCW rotational direction.
