Club Competition 2018

Registration Opens – Monday April 16th

Whether you are yet to experience competition atmosphere or buzz surrounding it, see your gymnast in action and watch their fabulous displays and impressive skills or just simply have a day out, we have planned this day to ensure it is suited for all family members and packed with entertainment. Our Annual Club competition is currently our club’s biggest fundraiser and raised funds will go toward upgrading our gymnastics facility and equipment.

We encourage your gymnasts to join us and enter the competition. They will automatically be in for a chance to win a medal but more importantly it will enable them to showcase their skills and have a great day out alongside their peers and friends at the same time.

The purpose of the competition is to run an event where all disciplines training in the club can come together. The day is a celebration of each individual athlete’s achievements over the past year.

While everyone is very welcome and encouraged to come and watch, the following groups are invited to enter the competition:

  • All RECREATIONAL groups excluding Parent & Toddler, Kinder Groups & Adult Gym.
  • WAG –  Intermediate, Development 1-4, National 1 & 2, HP Start Squad
  • All MAG
  • All RHY
  • All ACRO

Groups that aren’t mentioned above will be contacted by their coaches regarding a display. Other gymnasts already competing may also be asked to do a display.

Kinders will have their own display in our gym – date will be confirmed soon.

It is shaping up to be a superbly spectacular day!

Q1. What age groups are eligible?

A1. The recreational competition is open to current members enrolled in Senior Infants classes and older. Seniors and 1st Class members will be enrolled in a participation based event.

Q2. What is the participation only event?

A2. There is a “friendly” participation based competition for Senior Infants and 1st Class children. This means they will compete their routines the same as all other members but there will be a participation ceremony instead of a medals ceremony.

Q3. My child is in 1st class do they need to do the participation event or can they participate in the general competition?

A3. Children are currently being assessed on their routines during classes. If the coaches feel they should participate in a higher level we will contact you by email to ensure this is ok first.

Q4. How do the competition levels impact their training groups?

A4. The coaches decide the level that best suits the child’s ability and preparedness. There is no need to change groups in order to train for the competition. If ever we require a group change we will send an email to offer suggestions prior to any decision being made.

Q5. How much does it cost to enter in multiple disciplines?

A5. The first discipline costs €15.  Each additional discipline costs €5.

Q6. How can I register and make a payment?

Q8. Is the competition mandatory?

A8. No. The competition is an option event. It is also a great opportunity for gymnasts who want the challenge of performing routines in front of an audience and gives them a greater understanding of what participating in a gymnastics competition is like.

Q9. What time will the competition happen?

A9. Between 8:30am and 6:00pm. You will be assigned a specific time slot once we have processed all registration requests.
