BEAM ENTRY AND JUDGING NOTES:

You can enter at Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced level.

Beginner level uses the low beam and improvers/advanced can choose from low or high beam – these will be split into separate medal categories and may be split further by age group.

High beam = 3ft/90cm high, 15.5ft/4.5m long
Low beam = 2ft/60cm high, 10ft/3m long

  • A routine of six moves for beginners level or eight moves for improvers/advanced level plus a mount and dismount must be chosen, including moves marked as compulsory.
  • You must use the whole beam and travel the length of it at least three times.
  • Improvers/advanced level gymnasts must link two jumps/leaps and perform one high turn and one low turn.
  • Dance moves/linking moves/different types of walking should be used to show variety and originality.
  • Points will be deducted for adjusting your hair or clothing and/or being prompted by the Coach.
  • Time limit: 1 minute 30 seconds. Time starts upon first contact of the beam.
  • No music is allowed.

Please speak to your coach for advice about which grade is most suitable to enter at.

 

TRAMPETTE ENTRY AND JUDGING NOTES:

You can enter any one of five different ability grades.

Four jumps will be performed by the gymnast, as specified by the skills listed in each entry grade.

We use a standard sized enclosed frame trampette with 13mm webbed bed.

The judges scores for each move performed will be added together and averaged out.
The averaged score for each of the four skills performed will be added together to determine the final score.

Form judges are looking for the following:

  • A strong, powerful jump onto the Trampette, showing distance and good body shaping.
  • Accurate contact with full depression resulting in good height from the rebound phase.
  • Correct body shaping, control, technique, and height in the second flight.
  • A solid landing held for three seconds with no shuffling or stepping, slightly bent knees, and arms either up or parallel to the floor

Please speak to your coach for advice about which grade is most suitable to enter at.
