An entry fee must be paid for the gymnast to compete at each competition. There are 4-5 competitions per year and they are optional. This will be paid on behalf of the competitor, ranging at different prices depending on the hosting club. This can range from $45-55. Entry fee is non-refundable and must be paid at least a week prior to the competition date.
Please note that all competing gymnasts must have all fees paid up to date and in full for them to enter competitions throughout the year. Please arrive at the hosting club venue at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled warm up time. This gives time for the coach to allocate all gymnasts and to double check all gymnasts are in correct attire, and looking uniform with their hair. This also avoids a rush and gives them time to settle their nerves as well as become familiar with the venue and see how things run.
Please make sure your competing child is wearing their leotard and club hoodie or tracksuit is prefered over the top. They may this for marshalling during competition in the colder season and as well as prize giving presentation where all gymnasts are required to participate in. You will find that most hosting clubs may not offer EFTPOS or any other method of payment besides cash, where you will need to pay cash for a door charge entry into the venue as well as options for snacks at the canteen which is usually cash only as well. Juniors will not need to bring a bag with them onto the floor. The coach will bring a bag where they can put their belongings in.
You will need:
- A water bottle which is named
- Small healthy snack
- Inhaler (if required)
- Hand guards and wrist bands if worn
- Intermediate STEP gymnasts can bring a bag on the floor with them which should be of an
appropriate size and named, and of a black colour.
DO’s and DON’TS
Do support your child as well as their team mates! However please be aware there are other competing athletes that will be on other apparatuses and may find it is distracting if loud cheering occurs. Good sportsmanships reflects positively on everyone which is what we are encouraging! If your child is needing to use the bathroom make sure they are aware that they need to
approach their coach in letting them know. The coach needs to check if he/she has already competed, as they cannot leave if they are about to compete for the judges. The coach must also ask permission from the head judge to leave the comp floor to avoid distractions.
