Club Competition 19th & 26th June 2022
WHERE WILL THE COMPETITION BE HELD
We have 2 dates for the competition, Sunday 19th and Sunday 26th June. Both weekends of competition are being held at Coombe Wood School. NO competitions will be held at Bandon Hill Woodfield, although Bandon Hill Woodfield Gymnasts are eligible to enter.
HOW TO ENTER
Please use the form on this page. There is NO other way to enter. If you attempt to make payment at a reception desk at gym this will not indicate your gymnast is registered. Each gymnasts entry fee is £12.00.
CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES
Sunday 22nd May will be the last date you can enter the club competition. We will need a few weeks to be able to work out timings for each gymnast, and allow enough time to get this information to parents before the first weekend of competition. Please do not attempt to enter after this date as you will be too late this year.
WHICH DAY WILL MY CHILD BE ON
With 2 Sundays set aside for the club competition, once we receive full entries we will be able to split the gymnasts over the 2 days. We anticipate a large amount of entries so please DO NOT email asking what day and time your gymnast will be. We can not tell you this information until after the closing date when we have received every entry and we can then get all the gymnasts organised into days and times. As a general rule we tend to have the younger children on the first weekend and the older children on the second. If you email asking the times before this you will not receive a reply.
DO WE HAVE TO PAY TO WATCH
No, Spectators do not need to pay and there is no limit on how many people can come and watch.
WHY SHOULD WE ENTER THE COMPETITION
We encourage every gymnast to participate in our annual club competition. We provide a fun, friendly and encouraging competition arena, whereby we give gymnasts as young as 3 the chance to be able to take part in a competition to feel a sense of achievement. We celebrate everyones achievements even if that is just getting up and trying. We have noticed in previous competitions too that it also brings the gymnasts closer together as they often encourage their team mates and its a thoroughly enjoyable experience for each and every person.
WHAT DO THE GIRLS NEED TO WEAR
All Girls must be in a leotard (does not need to be a Future Gymnastics leotard) and they may wear gym shorts if they wish. No leggings, No jewellery, long hair tied back and neat, no baggy clothes / t-shirts.
WHAT DO THE BOYS NEED TO WEAR
If boys have a unitard this can be worn, or a T-Shirt with shorts. Please try to ensure the t-shirt wont go over their head as they go upside down.
WHAT WILL THE GYMNASTS BE COMPETING ON
All children will be performing a floor routine as well as another piece of equipment.
HOW DOES THE COMPETITION WORK
Gymnasts will compete in their own age category as well as their level. For example 2013 birth years competing Orange will be against each other.
Gymnasts will have 2 routines to perform. One on the floor showcasing their floor moves (cartwheels, rolls etc) and one on a piece of equipment suitable for their criteria. Their scores will be combined giving them a total score.
WHAT WILL GYMNASTS GET
No gymnast ever leaves our competitions empty handed!! We always have surprises on the day
