About
Like its other A-dance brethren, the split jump is too anemically valued to be a countable skill on floor, but it has gained new life when performed out of tumbling passes for connection value (often hilariously). Because it is simply a cynical tack-on to squeeze out an extra tenth, hilarity is encouraged. It helps fend off the darkness. Front 2014-2016, the split jump was also a common selection for performing out of an under-rotated dance element in the hope of avoiding a downgrade.
