Meet Policies

Meet Fees: Meet information and deadlines are sent out via email and posted on the website as soon as we receive the invitation. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to ensure they are signing up their gymnasts for the correct meets and paying meet fees on time. Meet fees are nonrefundable and must be paid in advance of the meet. We register gymnasts for meets solely based on the parent sign up list, so it is imperative that parents are aware of what they are signing up for - if a gymnasts name is on the sign up list, they are charged for the meet, regardless of attendance. We typically are required to register and pay for gymnasts a minimum of one month in advance of the meet, but sometimes as many as six months in advance to ensure space. We ask that parents communicate with us about any questions or concerns regarding meet sign ups.

Arriving to Meets: BE ON TIME! On time is being ready for the coaches to call you out to the floor at least 15 minutes prior to your open stretch/ gym opens start time. ***This may fluctuate a bit depending on meet rules, but plan to be this early even if it means waiting in the car*** If you arrive after that, you are late.

Please arrive early to your session to use the bathroom, check in, find a place to sit, etc.- being late causes stress on the gymnasts and coaches- please plan your travel time accordingly!!

Please be dressed and ready to go before you get to the meet. (leotard on, warmups on, mask on, hair up with scrunchie)

Warm-Up Jackets are to be zipped ¾ of the way up, do not zip tight to the neck. Please fold the collar down neatly.

Hair must be done in a high (above the ears) tight bun with your scrunchie & sprayed back neatly at the face and neck. (do not secure hair with only your scrunchie, it will fall out. **hair is to be put in tight so it does not fall out**

Hair items other than your scrunchie must be of a natural color- black, clear, nude. (our leotards are accented in black, so black hair bands are preferred)

Undergarments: Bras must be NUDE- Underwear must be NUDE (neither of these items should be showing as it results in a deduction- try them on with your leotard prior to arriving to the meet!) **undergarments are optional.

Gymnasts may wear glitter hairspray and makeup but not in excess.

No nail polish

No flash photography (PLEASE CHECK YOUR PHONE/ CAMERA- STILL PICTURES & VIDEO!!)

If your child uses grips, wrist supports, braces, etc. it is their responsibility to bring those items with them to competitions.

Coaches will gather the gymnasts for the session & take them out as a group- Gymnasts/ Spectators should never be in competition areas without a coach- this can result in disqualification!

DO NOT send your gymnast to find a coach or out in the competition area unless instructed to do so by a coach.

Shoes/ socks are to be left with parents/ guardian or placed into your duffle bag/ back pack (only AMKM bags are allowed to be on the competition floor)

Name must be on your water bottle

Spectators should never be in the competition area for any reason. Please be respectful of the competition boundaries.

If there is ever an issue at a meet, please connect with a coach - do not enter the competitive area.

Our phones are available for emergencies only during a meet - please be respectful of this and if necessary, please text versus call if possible.

Please be respectful to competition, let your gymnast focus rather than waving and trying to get their attention.

Wear your AMKM Apparel to show your support for these great gymnasts!!!

Team Pictures: Team Pictures will be held on February 5th at 5pm sharp. They will be taken by The Studio at The Avenue! We will send out the order forms and link to the online ordering store once they are provided! Attendance for individual pictures for the full team collage and attendance for your Level Group picture is required. You are not required to purchase photos or take a separate individual photo from the collage. Competition leotards and black masks are required for team pictures. We ask only one (1) parent or guardian attend pictures with your gymnast. Masks are required for any parent or guardian attending.

Meet Schedule: Here is our meet schedule for the 2021 Competition Season! Fees and due dates will continue to be updated as they are received. We will not be attending any meets until after January 1, 2021.

**It will be a standard expectation for meets this year that all spectators and athletes wear masks or face coverings. At this point, most meets are being limited to 2 spectators per registered athlete. Please plan ahead for these changes. We will continue to update as new guidelines are released for each meet.

**Meet Fees and signups must be on time. Please make arrangements to have these items taken care of prior to deadlines. If you fail to sign up, pay or make a payment plan prior to the meet deadline, you will be charged a $10 late fee.

**Schedules for Meets: We do not receive meet schedules until about 2 weeks prior to the meet. We do send these out as soon as we have them. We do not have details on when levels will compete until the meet schedules are provided. Please refrain from asking for meet schedules.

**Required Meets: Team members are required to attend all set required meets. If for some reason you are unable to attend a required meet, the full meet fee is still due.
