Spectators are the responsibility of the clubs, and Orpington Gymnastics Club will not tolerate abuse of its staff or volunteers. Unruly spectators may be asked to leave.
REMINDER: Spectators use cash only for competition seats.
Registration and warm-up will be in the same hall, which is the main arena. Once the gymnasts have registered they must stay in the main hall. If they need to leave to go to the toilet they must ensure one of their coaches is aware or an Orpington Gymnastics Club staff member. We also ask that no parents stay in the hall, they are welcome to wait in the corridor 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. It is the coaches' responsibility to ensure their gymnasts are collected by their parents.
All gymnasts’ belongings must be left with their parents. Orpington Gymnastics Club does not accept any responsibility for gymnasts’, coaches’ or spectators’ possessions. If any item is left in the hall, gymnasts will have to collect the item after the next round has marched into the competition arena and therefore left the warm-up hall.
During the competition, spectators are not to use flash photography. Spectators will get a warning if the rules are ignored, and could be asked to leave the arena for continuous use of a flash.
