WEEK OF NATIONALS

Monday, April 12: Spirit Day
Submit a photo or video of your team showing their pride and spirit for your club, while practicing safe social distancing. Example entries are team cheers, a poster, collage, hype video etc. Creativity is encouraged, including the use of Zoom to ensure group safety! If more than one individual is represented in a video and said individuals want to participate in the event, only one submission is required, but the submitter must list the names of all participating individuals that wish to receive a score.

Entries judged based on creativity and quality (if chant, all in unison, posters have nice photo shop, doesn’t look cobbled together etc.)

Tuesday, April 13: Olympic Day
Submit a video of yourself reenacting your favorite Olympians routine on any event, an interview, light hearted moment, or coach impersonation. Routine videos do not need to feature actual skills – for example, instead of a double double on floor, participants could execute two backwards somersaults followed by a standing double twist. The more creative the better. Make sure to include a link to the referenced video clip as well in your submission.

Entries judged based on creativity and similarity to intended clip.

Wednesday, April 14: Flexibility Challenge
Submit a video of a photo of you demonstrating the peak of your flexibility. As always, creativity is encouraged.

Entries judged based on creativity and level of flexibility (e.g. over splits valued higher than regular splits.)

Submit your best effort of a gymnastics related video that could go viral within the gymnastics community. Submissions could be demonstrations of grand improvement, most difficult skills, tik tok based challenges, fail videos, etc.

Entries judged based on creativity, and their ability to blend with internet culture.
