DESCRIPTION OF EVENTS AS QUOTED FROM USA GYMNASTICS
Floor routines consist of dynamic tumbling skills. The best gymnasts will incorporate tumbling passes with multiple twisting
and flipping, both forward and backward, throughout their routine. A gymnast must show power and control on this event.
Considered by many to be the most difficult of all men's events, the pommel horse is also the most subtle. Each move is
defined by complex hand placements. The gymnast must perform continuous circular movements interrupted only by the
required scissors elements. The entire exercise should flow with controlled rhythm. A gymnast must show precise timing
and balance throughout the routine.
Of all the men's events, rings are the least stable, therefore requiring the greatest amount of strength. Just as its name
suggests, the rings must be kept still while the gymnast is performing. There are two types of moves on the rings-strength
positions and swinging movements. Those with the best command of the event will display extraordinary skill in arriving at all
holds with absolute precision.
Each vault is categorized in the Code of Points, the official text giving the relevant value of each skill performed. A good vault is
sometimes described as the "big" vault. The height, the distance of travel, the overall acceleration into the vault and the
sudden impact of a no-step, "stuck" landing all create a good impression for the judges.
A parallel bar routine consists of predominantly swing and flight elements. Watch for the gymnast to execute swing elements
and skills in which both hands release and regrasp the bars. Some gymnasts move outside the two rails, performing
handstands and kips on only one bar.
This event is also known as the high bar, and routines consist exclusively of swinging parts without stops. The parts are
generally called giant swings, with more specific terms applying to changes in grip, direction and body position. Watch for the
gymnast to execute release moves. Look for high-flying dismounts with multiple flips and twists and, of course, the gymnast
aims to land the dismount with no extra steps.

|Girls Recreational Classes consist of Kindergarten age & Up
Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, Floor Exercise
DESCRIPTION OF EVENTS AS QUOTED FROM USA GYMNASTICS
A successful vault begins with a strong, accelerated run. The best vaulters explode off the board with tremendous quickness during the preflight phase of the vault. When the
gymnast pushes off the vault table, the judges are looking for proper body position and an instantaneous repulsion. Watch for the height and distance traveled, as well as the
number of flips and twists. Gymnasts strive to "stick" their landings by taking no extra steps.
The most spectacular of the women's events, the uneven bars demands strength, as well as concentration, courage, coordination and split-second timing. Watch for the big
swings that begin in handstands on the high bar, incorporating multiple hand changes, pirouettes and release elements. The entire routine should flow from one skill to the next
without pauses, extra swings or additional supports. Watch for the high flying dismount where the gymnast will attempt to stick her landing.
The beam is only four inches wide and considered the most difficult event by many gymnasts. The gymnast must use acrobatic, tumbling and dance movements in her routine.
Watch for acrobatic series consisting of two or more elements performed in a row. The overall execution should give the impression that the gymnast is performing on the floor,
not on a beam. Watch for variations in rhythm, changes in level, and the harmonious blend of dance and acrobatic elements.
Usually a favorite event for the fans, the floor routine must be choreographed to music and cover the entire floor area. The gymnast must use a variety of dance and tumbling
elements which reflects her personality. Most gymnast at the international level will do four tumbling passes, changing both the direction and level of movement throughout the
routine. Watch for powerful, yet graceful, routines that are fun and exciting.
