Each member of our club is given the opportunity to compete in competitions throughout the year. Our competition season begins at the end of August and runs until the end of November.
Class Challenge/Practice Competition
This is a practice competition run during classes on a special night where family members are welcomed to watch the girls showcase their work in preparation for the competition season ahead. This is an excellent night for all members to take part in. For many of our girls and ladies who have not competed in a competition before, it gives them an idea of what to expect in a friendly and familiar environment.
A club will host and invite several other clubs to compete in a friendly setting, which is a great introduction to zone competitions as members are provided with an opportunity to compete with members from other clubs. These occur before the start of the official competition season. Places are awarded on the day and do not effect end of year results.
Teams of six girls/ ladies compete together in their age groups, from 7 and over, with the aim of creating perfect timing, position and placement. Team placings are awarded on the day.
