TEAMS: a maximum of 6 children with the top 4 scores counting for the team result. Teams can consist of a mix of boys and girls from any year group. Each gymnast will perform one sequence, either the beginners or advanced.
INDIVIDUALS can be entered if you do not have 4 children to make a team.
SEQUENCES – there is a choice of a beginners sequence or an advanced sequence. Children should know the sequence so they are able to perform without prompting. The teacher must use their discretion as to which level of sequence a child should perform. Club gymnasts will generally be on the advanced sequences while those who only do gym in PE lessons will be more likely to do the beginners sequence.
