202. W. Spokane Falls Blvd. Hall B Spokane Convention Center
With all meets or training, please ensure your child eats something nutritious 30 minutes to one hour before arrival. Please have your daughter pack a water bottle and any other personal items she might need contained in a bag.
For the Royal Festival, please plan on at least four hours and pack snacks for your gymnast (to be eaten between competition and awards). Athletes may have a water bottle out on the floor, and snacks right before awards, but the Convention Center does not allow outside food for spectators.
All meets begin with some “open” warm-up time for running and stretching. Teams typically warm up together on the floor exercise mat for 20 to 30 minutes before marching in. In the Capital Cup Format, the gymnasts march in and then warm up on each event directly before competing on that event.
When your gymnast arrives for a gymnastics meet, she should already be in her competition leotard. Hair shoulder length or longer should be tied back and secured so it is not in the gymnast’s face. Excessive use of hairspray and glitter is not required and is up to the gymnast’s preference. Please be aware that certain hairstyles, bows, and clips can impede the gymnast while performing. Buns and clips are not required, but braids or “space buns” are great options. Hair should not touch the ground when the gymnast does a handstand, etc.
Gymnasts must remove all jewelry, including earrings, before warm-ups. “Stud” earrings are allowed. Hoop earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc., or any other jewelry may result in a deduction and requested by the judges to be removed.
Unique hair color, nail polish, etc., and other personal artistic expressions are welcome and do not result in a deduction. At Spokane Gymnastics, all coaches want each girl to feel confident, supported and to be able to have fun with all aspects of training and competition.
Gymnastics League athletes can participate at the Royal Festival by special accommodation from the meet host.There is a parking garage located conveniently right underneath the convention center. There are also additional parking lots around downtown Spokane.
The concession stand will be open for you to purchase food, drinks, and snacks by card only.
