DISPLAYS (Updated 2017)

Falcon Spartak gymnasts have particated in numerous displays over the years, the most frequent recurring event being the London Festival which is held in the autumn in Brentwood, Essex.

Gymnasts who are chosen for displays must be committed in following through the training before the event, parents should be aware that some events such as the festival, involve payment of entry fees and costumes are sometimes needed in place of leotards (depending on the theme). Costs for display costumes are carefully researched and kept to a minimum wherever possible. Parents will be given ample notice if club leotards are needed for displays to allow time for ordering. 

Gymnasts must wear training kit to and from displays and names on the back of clothing is discouraged on young and or vulnerable gymnasts as these events are usually very crowded and gymnast safety is always paramount.

Hair and make up arrangements will be finalised before the event, so please make sure you know what they are before travelling!

Event updates will be posted in the newsletter, on the Events webpage and on facebook.

Parents and family members are encouaged to come along and spectate, as always cheering is expected from you! The club has always received positive feedback following displays and the gymnasts thoroughly enjoy the experience.

COMPETITIONS (Updated 2017)

All gymnasts must wear club uniform and club leotards for  competitions. 

Boys uniform consists of black Milano leotard and black Milano shorts for competing. Training kit is allowed at Club competitions.


Girls must wear the Club leotard when competing at external competitions. They can wear the matching red velour shorts over their leotards if preferred, black shorts can only be worn within the club.

Longer hair must be tied back in a bun for competing, with longer fringes swept back from the eyes. The use of a bun net is advised and our leotard lady will happily advise on styling hair. Shoulder length hair that is too short for a bun should be styled in pigtails or plaits for safety and to stop children from having to brush their hair out of their faces whilst doinf routines.

All gymnasts must wear Club tracksuits and plain white trainer socks for marching into the arena, this is an official regulation.

Club tracksuit must be worn for march on.

PLEASE NOTE:

Gymnasts must not have their name on the back of their competition kit! 

Spectators should make themselves aware of Competition etiquette, Brirish Gymnastics guidelines can be read here 

Lastly, parents and family members attending competitions to spectate must be prepared to clap, cheer and have a great time watching the fabulous performances our gymnasts work so hard to achieve!
