The USAIGC and IAIGC Countries have established a growing International Competitive Gymnastic Program. The IAIGC, International Association of Independent Gymnastic Clubs Sanctioned Competitions are currently held in Bermuda, South Africa & the United Kingdom and are OPEN to ALL USAIGC Gymnasts. Six Countries currently comprise the IAIGC: USAIGC, Bermuda, Canada, Germany, India, Saudi Arabia, South Africa & the United Kingdom. All Countries follow the SAME Competitive Rules. Rules recommend and voted upon every two years by our members
intelligent Competitive rules!
-Competitive Entry Level is decided by the Coach based on the skill level of the gymnast.
-Gymnasts Mobility: based on mastery of skills, not a score.
-Gymnasts do not have to move up to the next competitive level in consecutive order.
When and what level to move up to is the Coaches decision based on the gymnast's skill level
Different Competitive Opportunities:
1. Gymnasts can compete on their next competitive level up, on up to two events preventing the feeling of being "stuck in a level".
2.The USAIGC/IAIGC encourages Individual event specialists and provides our gymnasts with the
opportunity to compete in up to six (6) events.
The USAIGC/IAIGC will continue to provide choices and opportunities for our gymnasts.
3. Different Qualification Procedures.
-State Championship qualification can be attained at any sanctioned USAIGC/IAIGC competition.
-Regional Championship scores are 1 point higher than our State Championship Score and can be attained at any
USAIGC-IAIGC Sanctioned Competitions.
-USAIGC/IAIGC Gymnasts can compete in a State and/or Regional Championships to qualify to our World Championship.
The USAIGC/IAIGC believes that it is as much about the experience of the competition as the competition itself.
Our Gymnasts compete in an environment that fosters friendship and develops successful healthy well-rounded athletes. This is what the USAIGC / IAIGC competitive program is all about!
The USAIGC/IAIGC Office conducts three Unique Competitions on Three Different Competitive Platforms Nationally and a World Championship at the end of June. Our Member Clubs host sanctioned USAIGC Competitions across the USA.
We have established a growing International Gymnastic Program:
IAIGC – International Association of Independent Gymnastic Clubs that host International Gymnastic Competitions for all our Club Members. Bermuda is set for its fourth USAIGC/IAIGC Gymnastic Challenge and we just held our first South Africa Gymnastic Challenge. In 2015-16 the United Kingdom and Canada will host their first International Competitions.
The USAIGC/IAIGC have moved in a different Competitive Direction. We created an Optional Only International College Bound Competitive Program in conjunction with our membership. A Competitive Program that has allowed us to compete on an International Platform.
-The Coach: places the gymnast in their competitive level based on their skill mastery. Gymnasts move up our Competitive ladder based on their mastery of skills not a score. Gymnasts do not have to move up to the next level in consecutive order. When and what level to move up to is the Coaches decision.
Different Competitive Opportunities: our gymnasts can compete on their next competitive level on up to two events preventing boredom and the feeling of being "stuck in a level". We encourage individual event specialists.
-State/Regional Championship qualification scores can be attained at any sanctioned competition, nationally or internationally.
-USAIGC/IAIGC Gymnasts can compete in either a State or Regional Championships or both.
-Our Gymnasts can qualify from ANY USAIGC/IAIGC Sanctioned Competition in the USA or Internationally. We believe a score on the east coast is the same as a score on the west coast, or Internationally. We have confidence in our USAIGC/IAIGC Officials.
State and Regional Championships serve specific purposes:
(1) bring sections of the country together to compete
(2) provide an additional opportunity to compete Regionally
(3) both Championships are World Championship Qualification Competitions
The USAIGC/IAIGC provide choices and opportunities for our gymnasts.
For the USAIGC/IAIGC it is as much about the experience of the competition as the competition itself. Our Gymnasts compete in a competitive environment that fosters friendship and develops successful healthy well-rounded athletes.
This is what the USAIGC / IAIGC competitive program is all about!
