Competition Information


Additional information for the day of the competition

Clothing

Your child should wear what they would normally wear to gymnastics, e.g a leotard, etc.  You do not have to have a club leotard or in fact a leotard at all.  Shorts and t-shirt will be fine. Please note no jewellery is allowed.  

Hair must be tied back neatly.  

Parents will be responsible for looking after the gymnasts shoes and outer wear, coats etc.  Please try to put all the gymnasts belongings in one bag to avoid losing items.

Any water bottles should be clearly labelled and will go with the gymnast to put into a drinks crate.

On Arrival

When you arrive please follow signs to the main sports hall and sign your child in.

Spectator Admissions Fee

Adults are requested to pay £1.50 spectator’s fee and children who are not competing will be charged 50p.  Please try to have correct change.  Whilst there will be chairs to accommodate spectators we cannot guarantee everyone will get a seat.

Please remember as spectators that you should not be on any mats or equipment but should remain in the spectators seats in the designated spectator area.

Parking

There is a very small car park and the school have asked that due to the volume of people on site that day that this be restricted to staff only.  You will therefore need to allow additional time to find parking on the adjacent roads.  Late arrival may mean your child cannot participate.

Volunteers

If you or your child have said you are happy to volunteer now that we have provided their competing times please can you email admin@benchmarkgym.com to confirm what time you/they can volunteer from and to.
