Is a pivot from heel to toe stepping?

Is pivoting from heel to toe and vide versa stepping?
Asked using Sportplan Mobile App

Hi Lisa, 

The rule states that a pivot is: 'a movement where the player with the ball swivel either on the heel or on the ball of the landing foot while this maintains contact with the original landing position'. Therefore, as long as the landing foot maintains contact with the ground e.g. the whole foot does not come off the floor, this would be fine and NOT footwork. 

Hope this helps.

but if the landing position is the ball of the foot ie toes (with heels raised) then if you lower the foot and pivot from the heel. the rules as you state is swivel EITHER on heel or ball .... "while maintaining contact with the original landing position". if i move from the toe to the heel it is NOT the original landing position. Granted if the entire foot was grounded then you would have a choice about what part of the foot is "original landing position".
