Star-Tastic Gymnastics holds 3 sets of friendly competitions per year.

We welcome all ages and abilities to compete, and are a great way to introduce your children to friendly competitions!

Previously, we have held competitions on the following pieces of equipment:

  • Floor
  • Vault
  • Beam
  • Springboard
  • Trampette
  • Tumbling
  • Acro
  • Parkour (speed runs)
  • Trampolining
  • Women’s Artistic 4 Piece (Squad only)

Competition groups are based on ability first, groups are then sub-divided based on age. Grouped ages will depend on number of gymnasts competing, we generally try to group gymnasts in 2 year age groups, however this is not always guaranteed. We present bronze, silver & gold medals and all gymnasts receive a participation certificate for doing so well.

We often have other activities present at our competitions, such as a snack stand, a raffle, games and more!

We feel our friendly competitions often give our members an important and fun goal to work towards. This was amplified even more this year and we managed to hold 2 competitions during the pandemic; a virtual competition which we worked towards on Zoom and an in-class beam competition just before December.  All our gymnasts did so well in these competitions and gave them a great focus during this difficult year!

Due to COVID-19, we cannot estimate when our next in-person competition will be, however as soon as we can safely organise one we will let you know.

Local gymnastics clubs are welcome to attend our competitions! If you’re interested in your club attending please email us (info@startasticgymnastics.com).

What: Parkour Competition

When: Saturday 27th November

Provisional Times: 4:15pm – 6:15pm

Where: Rosebery School, Epsom.

Clothing: Star-Tastic t-shirt and suitable trousers/shorts

Cost: £10

Parkour chase tag is a game of cat and mouse where the chaser must catch his opponent (the runner) and tag them. This

can be anywhere on the body as long as the body is tagged (clothing does not count).

The chaser will have a set time to catch his opponent. What makes this interesting is they must battle it out on a Parkour course. The course will be built with multiple levels and platforms to use as an evasion for the runner to getaway. Using their Parkour skills to outwit and evade their opponent.

If the runner manages to evade the chaser, they must stay on for the next round to begin against a new opponent, exhaustion now being an additional obstacle they must overcome.

This is a high-intensity, high-energy challenge. Do you have what it takes to be the champ? 🏃
