Trick & Combo List
This page contains a list of the fundamental tricks in the American Trickline Association scoring
system and a list of common combos. Each item in the tick list includes the trick name, the trick
abbreviation (which can be used when scoring the trick using our scoring software), a picture of
an athlete performing the trick, and a wireframe visualization of the biomechanical model used to
generate the difficulty value for the trick (for more information see the rules
section of our website). This list is still incomplete and does not yet contain all the tricks supported
by the scoring software but it is growing all the time. If you have tricks to suggest or would like to
submit photos of tricks use the "Contact Us" button at the bottom of the page!
Score Your Own Trick
One of the most powerful aspects of the American Trickline Association scoring system is that it can score
any trick you can describe, even tricks that have never been landed before! To learn how to describe tricks

Comparing Trick Values
Points do not scale linearly in our scoring system which means comparing trick values directly can be
misleading. If 'TrickA' is worth three times as much as 'TrickB' it DOES NOT mean that landing TrickB
three times will earn an athlete the same amount of points as landing TrickA once. To help you get a
better feel for the relationship between different tricks we've created a tool which can tell you how
many times an athlete would need to land TrickA for them to score as many points as they would if they
landed TrickB once. Try it out!
