Gymnastics

Gym Festival 2019

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 easy one or the hard one.

INDIVIDUALS can be entered if you do not have 4 children to make a team.

SEQUENCES – there is a choice of an easy sequence or a hard 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 hard sequences while those who only do gym in PE lessons will be more likely to do the easy sequence. Some children clearly need the challenge of the harder sequence and obviously no one will be entered in the easy sequence just to score points for the team.
