Warm Up: The competition will begin with a warm up (stretching and exercise) then gymnasts will move to their first event's apparatus for pre-competition skill and routine rehearsal. Time limits for each athlete or team are set so that everyone gets the same amount practice time.
March In: Following the warm up the athletes will assemble typically near their first event, where they will then “march in” meaning they will salute when their team name is called; the judges for each event are also introduced. The National Anthem will then follow.
Competition: Following the march in, the gymnasts will disperse to their first competition event. They always stop by the judging tables at each event to acknowledge the judges and to say Hello. They will compete at each of the four events (beam, bars, vault and floor).
Awards: At the conclusion of the competition medals and/or trophies are awarded to the girls who have done the best at each event as well as all-around. The girls are grouped by both level and age (such as Level, ages 5 and below, Level 4, age 10, etc.). Teams also get awards. This is calculated by adding up the top three scores in each event to produce a final team score.
