Competition Format

The National Gymnastics Challenge will consist of a modified capitol cup format for all levels.


MODIFIED CAPITOL CUP FORMAT - Two sets of apparatus in one gym and where the first four squads (Flight 1) have timed warm-ups and competition on one set of apparatus, while the second four squads (Flight 2) have timed warm-ups and competition on the other set of apparatus.   As soon as the squads in Flight 1 finish timed warm-ups on their first event and begin competition, the four squads in Flight 2 begin their timed warm-ups on their first event. Once Flight 1 completes competition on the first event, the judges move to the other set of apparatus to judge Flight 2. The two flights continue to alternate between warm-up and competition until all eight squads have completed all four events. 2)Since the timed warm-ups are conducted on the competition apparatus immediately preceding the competition on the event, 30-second touch warm-ups are not required.

Team Competition

Registration for the team competition is FREE for all eligible clubs with three (3) or more gymnasts per level. Team rankings will be determined by the total of the top three (3) scores from each event and the top three (3) teams per session per level will be awarded.

Teams with more than 10 team members will be separated into different squads and will start on different events and possibly different sessions.   It will be necessary to provide a minimum of two (2) coaches with team members over 10 members.   Clubs are able to determine which gymnasts will compete in which squad/session if team is split.


Event placement awards will be given for half of the age group up to 10 places and 100% All-Around and will be recognized on the awards stand.  

Team awards will be awarded to 1st to 3rd place teams for all sessions and all levels.
