It will be left to the discretion of the host school to determine whether additional teams can be accommodated once nominations have been received. Additional teams in a Grade will only be accepted if some schools have not entered teams in each grade/division.   

Competitors may be chosen from Years 2 – 6 inclusive. 

Gymnasts are to be ranked by their school according to ability, regardless of their current or previous participation in the sport.

It is expected that gymnasts currently registered with an affiliated Gymnastics Qld Club at Level 4 or above will compete in A Grade as long as their ranking places them in the top five places. 

Exception

Level 4 and above gymnasts:  An A Grade gymnast may only compete in B Grade or below if a school has selected five (5) gymnasts in their A Grade team. A gymnast may be moved to a lower grade within the four weeks prior to the competition, based on a medical recommendation due to injury.

Where vacancies occur in the draw:

The host school will request schools to nominate any additional teams in the relevant Grades.   

If more than one school nominates additional teams for a grade, a ballot will be held if required.

Schools entering two teams in a grade/division must enter their teams in ranked descending order of ability.
