GYM SPECIFIC TEST - OVERVIEW FOR VIDEO GUIDANCE

Videos submitted must be unedited and include all elements below in succession. We understand (and expect) that girls may make mistakes, but please do not stop the video. We would prefer to see a girl complete an element and adapt to a mistake as she would in a live setting, rather than videos being cut so that only perfect performances are seen. If they make a mistake, they can try again to do the element to the best of their ability.

 If there are elements that your daughter is unable to perform, or currently need support for, don’t worry, just get her to say that on the footage and move onto the next…
