Competition Format

The NCAA Youth Gymnastics Challenge will consist of a modified capitol cup format for all 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 FREE.  All teams with 3 or more gymnasts per level will be automatically entered in the team competition.  Team rankings will be determined by the total of the top three (3) scores from each event for each team registered.  Teams with more than 10 team members will be separated into different groups and start on different events and possibly different sessions. It will be necessary to provide a minimum of 2 coaches with team members over 10 members.  If placed in two different sessions the team entry will be valid for both sessions.  


Event placement medals will be given for half of the age group up to 10 places and 100% All-Around will be recognized on the awards stand.   First place All-Around winners will receive a special all-around gift and will be introduced on the NCAA podium during the opening of the Super Six competition on Saturday evening.

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