What do I need to do at a competition?

You or your coach should sign in to inform the organisers that you are there and check that your entry is correct. Collect tariff sheets and possibly buy a programme. Make sure you find out which panel you are competing on and which trampolines you are allowed to use.

Which age group should I enter?

If your 15th birthday is (at any point) in the year of the competition is then you have to move up to the over 15.

Lets say a competition is on July 5th 2008. If your 15th birthday is on December 28th 2008 you would have to enter in over 15 category even though you will be 14 at the competition.

There are two set routines in my grade, which should I compete?

Which ever your coach decides is most appropriate for you. It is required in the log book that you compete both (at seperate competitions) before grading however the log book is optional at the moment and this is not a requirement at the moment.

It is a regional decision, however most regions have decided that you simply need to compete either routine and obtaining the qualification score to grade.

What are the qualification scores?

The log book contains the guide scores. The actual qualification scores are shown on the routines page.
