2. Athletes must stay behind the coiling line at all times.

3. Athlete must work alone (coaching from sidelines is encouraged and may, or may not, help). Hands, feet and knees may be used during coiling.

4. Finished coil must be neat, uniform and the diameter must meet the Judge's specification (sample will be available at the event). Time penalities will be assessed for neatness and diameter infractions: -- seconds for every 2 inches over or under the designated diameter. -- 1 second for each non-uniform loop.
