Schedule and timetable

Spectators:

Tickets will be available only on the day from 8.00am, priced at:

Adults - £5 (16+ years old) Kids - £3 (4-15 years old) 3 and under free

 

Spectators will be able to pay for entry outside of the arena before the start time to help ensure a safe flow of people between rounds.

Please note that Neon gymnastics can only take cash for spectators.

Spectators are the responsibility of the clubs, and Neon Gymnastics will not tolerate abuse to its staff or volunteers. Unruly spectators may be asked to leave.

 

 

REMINDER: Spectators use cash only for competition seats.

Numbers

Numbers:

Coaches will need to show the gymnast’s number to the judge before each performance. Please remember that gymnasts can create their own numbers. The best and most artistic numbers in each round will be awarded a prize. If the gymnast decides not to create their own number, their coach will be able to use the number flip charts at each apparatus.

Halls

Halls:

Registration and warm up will be in a separate warm up hall. The warm up will be a mass warm up. We ask that clubs take it in turn to lead the warm ups, however all coaches should help to supervise to ensure the warm up runs smoothly. Once the gymnasts have registered they must stay in the registration hall. If they need to leave to go to the toilet they must ensure one of their coaches are aware or a Neon staff member. We also ask that no parents stay in the hall, they are welcome to wait in the cafe while they wait for the doors to the arena to open.

 

The competition is in the main arena and the gymnasts will be led through when ready to start. If the gymnast has their own number they should bring it in at this point.

After the competition the gymnasts will be led through the side doors into the dismissal hall. In the hall the gymnasts will choose their t-shirt. The spectators will then leave the arena via the exit doors which will bring them to outside the dismissal hall, ready to collect their gymnast. It is the coaches responsibility to ensure their gymnasts are collected by their parents.

 

All gymnasts’ belongings must be left with parents. Neon Gymnastics do not accept any responsibility for gymnasts’, coaches’ or spectators’ possessions. If any item is left in the warm up hall, gymnasts will have to collect the item after the next round have marched into the competition arena and therefore left the warm up hall.

Photography:

During the competition, spectators are not to use flash photography. Spectators will get a warning if the rules are ignored, and could asked to leave the arena for continuous use of a flash.

Spectators:

Spectators MUST NOT go onto the floor area, or approach judges or coaches during the competition. If this rule is broken, Flying Angels Gymnastics Club reserves the right to ban the offending spectator from future competitions. The gymnast will not be affected by this.

Event Stalls

Event stalls:

There will be an official photographer taking photos during the event and the pictures will be available to buy in the dismissal hall and online a few days afterwards.

There will be a leotard stall for gymnasts to purchase leotards at the side of competition arena.

Tolworth Recreational Centre have a cafe where you can purchase hot and cold drinks. The centre however do not sell hot food, food is mainly available from vending machines.

Event T-Shirts

Event T-shirts:

Gymnasts will receive their competition t-shirts at the end of the event in the dismissal hall. They will have a choice of colours (while stocks last) and will be given a size according to their age.

Gymnasts

Gymnasts:

Clubs and coaches are responsible for the gymnasts during the competition. It is down to the coaches to ensure the gymnasts are dismissed safely. Parents ARE NOT permitted to go on to the floor area

All competing gymnasts must be current members of British Gymnastics unless proof of separate insurance is provided to the competition organiser prior to their entry.

Competition attire:

Welfare:

Neon Gymnastics will have a welfare officer and first aider present or on call.

It is the coach’s responsibility to make sure the gymnast is prepared for the competition. During warm up judges may ask for a move to be removed if deemed unsafe.

If a gymnast is showing signs of injury they will NOT be allowed to compete.

Accredited photographers may be present at Neon competitions. By entering a neon event, participants accept that they may be photographed.

Competition

Competition:

Level AP

 

Beam

The two groups will be on one beam, but with two sets of judges. For example:
4 min warm up: Beam One group on the competition beam while Beam Two group uses the floor beam
4 min warm up: Beam Two group on the competition beam while Beam One group uses the floor beam

 

Note - We ask that the gymnasts do not wait for the gymnast to fully finish before they mount the competition beam. While one gymnast is half way along the beam the next gymnast can start to mount. We believe this will ensure all gymnasts get a fair warm up within the time, and will also help ensure we run to time.

 

Gymnast from Beam One group performs to Judge 1
While Judge 1 is scoring the gymnast from Beam One group, a gymnast from Beam Two group will perform to Judge 2
While Judge 2 is scoring the gymnast from Beam Two group, the next gymnast from Beam One group will perform to Judge 1
etc...

 

Once the beam has been completed the beams will be removed and the same area will become their floor area. The AP group will not wait for the Level 1’s to finish their round before they start their 2nd piece.
