General Guidance and Information for Competition

The following information can be downloaded as a WORD file here

This is intended as a reference for performers and all parents accompanying their children to competitions.

TYPES OF COMPETITION [Top]

GRADES [Top]

Competitors are separated for competitions by age group and grade.

ROUTINES [Top]

For every competition, the competitor needs two 10-bounce routines memorised. The first is usually a SET or COMPULSORY routine; this is specific to the appropriate grade. Everyone in the group will be doing the same routine. The routine must be performed exactly as prescribed with no extra bounces in between or mistakes. All routines for the appropriate grade and age are available for reference on the Storm website. Depending on the grade, you will either compete the SET twice, or you may have the option to compete a VOL or voluntary routine. This routine is designed in negotiation with the coach; every one can be different. It is normally more difficult than the SET as extra marks are given for difficulty (see scoring). Performers only get one chance to complete their routines and if they make a mistake they cannot try again. In higher grades, there is sometimes a third ‘Final’ round for the highest scoring competitors only. In this round, all previous scores are 'zeroed' and the VOL is performed again to decide the final standings.

ETIQUETTE [Top]

During competition, no-one must walk in between the judging panel and competing bed in case they are judging a routine. Whenever someone is bouncing, they must have spotters. When actually COMPETING, they must bring TWO spotters only, stood at the two open corners of the bed. Spotters cannot communicate with the competitor during their routine. When called to compete by the competition marshall, the competitor should mount the trampoline and sit neatly in the seat drop position on the cross. The chair of judges will then inform them that they may begin. At this point the competitor should neatly turn to face the judges and ‘present’ (Right arm for the boys, both arms for the girls). Then ¼ twist to face the direction they want to start when they bounce. At the end of the routine they should stop dead and stay still for 3 seconds to show they are under control. They should then turn and present again to the judges, they are then free to leave the bed. Sportsmanship and composure should be shown at all times.

SCORING [Top]

At all competitions, judging panels consist of: 5 form judges who judge the neatness of the routine, a chair of judges, who advises of deductions and makes important decisions with regards to disputes, and a tariff judge who checks that the routine is correct and calculates the difficulty score of a routine during the ‘vols’. As the routine is performed, the form judges are looking at every single move and deciding how close it was to perfect. This eventually equates to a score out of 10 for the routine. When the judges show their scores, to avoid any bias, the top and bottom scores are disregarded and the middle three are added together. In the ‘vol’ round, the tariff score is also added to make the total score for the routine. Following, are reasons why extra marks may be deducted from a routine:
· Instability at the end of a routine.
· More than 10 elements in the routine.
· Less than 10 elements in the routine.
· Communicating or being communicated-with during the routine.
· Taking too long to start the routine (more than 60 seconds)
These are reasons why the judging of a routine could be stopped before the end:
· Landing on one leg.
· Performing the incorrect move during a ‘set’.
· ‘Killing the bed’ during a routine.
· Landing-on any pads, mats or springs, or touching them with any part of your body or clothing. (This includes hair and hair ties!)
· Putting hands down, or landing on knees etc. during a routine.
Obviously, the competitor with the highest sub-total for both ‘set’ and ‘vol’ added together will be the winner.

CLOTHING [Top]

As a general rule, the clothing regulations are the same for all competitions. They are as follows:
· Boys should wear a sleeveless leotard and light-coloured or white gym stirrups with plain socks in white or in the same colour as the stirrups; or trampoline shoes.
· Girls should wear a leotard (long-sleeved, or sleeveless) with plain white socks or trampoline shoes. They MAY be able to wear hot-pants/shorties, depending on the competition, but they must match the colour and material of the leotard exactly.
· If the competitors are in a TEAM, all team members MUST be wearing identical kit.
· NO jewellery is allowed.
Although not an official rule, at Storm we hope that all competitors come to competitions in the club tracksuit and t-shirt and ideally compete in the club leotard. These can be lent-out as appropriate.

OFFICIALLING
[Top]
At EVERY competition there is an obligation for competing clubs to provide competition officials. The number required is proportional to the number of club competitors entering.

As coaches, we feel that our time at competitions is best spent supporting and encouraging competitors. We too often end up needing to be officials instead though. We hope that parents will be willing to help us out in this regard so that we can be left to help the kids. There will be an opportunity on the termly costing sheets, to indicate if any help can be provided. Please think about volunteering, it would be a great help to the kids and the club. Officials (with the exception of warm-up marshalls) generally get a free lunch on the day, and cost of entry will be reduced for those who are willing to help. Below are descriptions of all the official positions:
FORM JUDGE
A form judge is someone who watches the competing routines and allocates scores for the neatness of the execution (form). To be a form judge, you must attend a 2-day training course, which Storm will happily fund if people are willing to volunteer for this role.
TARIFF JUDGE
A tariff judge is someone who watches the competing routines and checks that the set routine is correct, and for the vol, adds up the difficulty scores for the moves in the routine as they are performed. To be a tariff judge, you must also attend the BG judges course.
RECORDER
The recorder is an administrator who takes down judges scores and calculates totals as necessary. There are two types of recorder, and both are normally found working in parallel. One is a manual recorder who does everything on paper and uses a calculator. There is also a computer recorder who types in the scores into special scoring software and works everything out on computer. Neither position requires any qualifications as such, but experience would be essential. As such, if any parents are interested in gaining experience, I’m sure that you could sit in at a recorders station during future competitions to learn the job first hand.
COMPETITION MARSHALL
The competition marshal organises the traffic flow of competitors and warm-ups during competition. They check attendance and organise everyone into order after the general warm-up. They make sure that all competitors know when they are about to compete or warm-up. A good competition marshall ensures the quick and smooth running of a panel.
WARM-UP MARSHALL
This easy role is only required during the ‘general’ warm-up before the competing round starts. There are two per panel, one for each bed. The job involves collecting warm-up cards from competitors and ticking off the card as routines are practised. This ensures that everyone gets their fair share of practice and the warm-up process remains smooth and calm.
