Competition Format

The 2015 Once Upon A Time Gymnastics Invitational will consist of a modified capitol cup format for all other 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 $50.00 per team per level as indicated on the Official Registration Form. Team rankings will be determined by the total of the top three (3) scores from each event for each team registered. There is no designation of team members unless clubs enter more than one team. Teams with more than 12 team members could be separated into different groups and start on different events and possibly be in different sessions. It will be necessary to provide a minimum of 2 coaches with team members over 12 members.  If placed in two different sessions the one team entry will be valid for both sessions.  No additional fee is necessary.


Event placement medals will be given for half of the age group up to 10 places and 100% All-Around and be recognized on the awards stand.   First place All-Around winners will receive a special AA award. 

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