1) 10+U Category This category has been removed from the BC competitive system. For all athletes registered in the L1 categories (TR/DMT/TU), the registration will be reviewed immediately following the registration deadline for the first sanctioned BC Provincial Cup, then split by the median age to a maximum of two age groups. For example: the girls category may be L1 11+U / L1 12+. Depending on the numbers, the boys may once again compete as one open age group. Once the new split has been established, the athletes will remain in the same groupings for the remained of the season. Reminder that the athletes age is determined as of December 31, 2018.
2) BC Provincial Cup – Registration Fees The Technical Committee has approved a small increase in the athlete registration fee for all BC Provincial Cups. The fee will be $90. This move was taken to assist clubs with the added cost of meeting the new staging requirements for both DMT and TU. Judging panels for these events will now be sittin…

I had a query about getting a Shasta backpack. Unfortunately the team backpack we have is no longer available. Due to our increased costs this season, we took the decision not to get backpacks this year. FYI, we will be getting new backpacks and bodysuits next year. As far as I know at this point, the singlets will be staying the same.
The 10+U (10 yrs and under) category will be removed from the Gymnastics BC trampoline gymnastics competitive program as a competitive category at all Gymnastics BC sanctioned events, and is therefore no longer a part of the Gymnastics BC competitive program. At BC Provincial Cups, registered competitors in Level 1 (L1) will be split by the median age into a maximum of two age groups.
