Eligibility Qualifying

Level 1 & 2 Girls & Xcel Bronze

This is a great way to introduce gymnastics competition to your pre-team and class gymnasts. We use the routines outlined by USA Gymnastics. No special uniform needed, have the girls wear their favorite leotard. The goal of these levels is to introduce gymnastics to the parents in a positive, fun and rewarding environment. We assure you this will be the best competition your beginner gymnast will ever see! No score needed to advance to Championships, just compete in any Gateway meet.

Level 3 – 8 Girls & Xcel Silver – Diamond

The gymnasts will compete routines outlined by USA Gymnastics. Routines will be judges based on USA deductions. See mobility scores below for level 3 & 4.  We  will be offering all Xcel division at every meet.

Age Groups

We will provide as many age groups as possible to allow for balanced competition and a multitude of awards. Age groups will be determined upon receipt of the meet entry forms.

EXCEPTION: If an age group has an abundance of absence or entries, that age group will be divided or combined. The gymnast’s age group will be based on their age of the Championships.

Awards

Awards are given in each age group within each level. Places are determined by the number of entries in each age group. Gateway Gymnastics awards event placement to 60% of the competitors. Every gymnast receives an award in the All-Around. Ties are not broken, except for at Championships.

Team Competition

We will offer team competition at every meet. The team score will be determined by the top 3 scores per event and level. No team entries will be accepted the day of the competition. Only those registered before deadline will be entered in the team competition.

Deadlines & Refunds

In order to get a meet time schedule out in a timely manner, all deadlines will be 2 weeks prior to the meet date. If the entry form for a meet is received after the deadline the higher price will be expected to be paid as listed below. Meet refunds requested must have a physicians note. Entry fees must be paid for all gymnasts entered in competition. Example – you fax in entry and plan to pay the day of the meet. You have 3 gymnasts scratch, they still must pay, unless you have a doctors note.

SPECTATOR ADMISSION

There is not a charge for admission at any meet. We were able to offer this service by including the admissions into our entry fee.
