During the artistic level 1 to 3 district trials the new group format was followed. This system primarily is to have it be non-competitive for all athletes under 9 years old.
Therefore the competition format at the Artistic South Zone will look as follows:
Under 9 Age Groups
Regardless of level all under 9 age groups will compete in their clubs with their club coaches on the floor with them.
Awards will be handed out in no particular order (no acknowledgement of placings will be given – besides the gold, silver and bronze awards)
Age 9 and over Groups
All 9 and over groups will compete in their age group and as a District team with district coaches on the floor with them only
Awards will be handed out in order – bronze awards, then silver awards, then gold awards and 1st,
2nd and 3rd placed gymnasts will be acknowledged (no additional prizes necessarily).
The WCGA Letter re South Zone groupings explains the new format.
