On uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise, the connection of two or more elements earn extra tenths of bonus towards the routine's start value. Depending on how difficult the connected skills are, they have different connection values, or CV. If there is too long of a pause between the elements in a planned connection, it's not credited and causes the start value to drop. These connection values are as listed in the 2017-2020 Code of Points.

Values

On bars, beam, and floor, each element is given a value, which represents how difficult it is. Values are represented as letters (A-G on bars and beam; A-I on floor), which correspond to how many tenths they're worth.

A = 0.1
B = 0.2
C = 0.3
D = 0.4
E = 0.5
F = 0.6
G = 0.7
H = 0.8
I = 0.9

Uneven Bars

For flight elements, they must be directly connected, meaning no kip cast in between.

Floor Exercise

Indirect Acrobatic Connections

Indirect connections are when the first skill is separated by a round-off and/ or back handspring from the second skill, but the entire sequence is connected together.
