Gymstar Open 

Recreational competitive events for gymnasts who are 17 and above (gymnasts over 17 years of age may still enter regular Gymstar Competitions). Gymstar Opens will have an emphasis on participation and the events will rely heavily on the honesty of participants. The aim is to give adults more opportunities to enjoy competing in a fun recreational environment. Gymnasts currently competing in the ALP are not eligible to compete at Gymstar Open events. 
Medals awarded for 1st – 6th on apparatus and individual overall as well as 1st – 3rd team 
All gymnasts receive a certificate 
Gymnasts nominate their level for each apparatus that they are competing on when they enter the event. They will then be judged based on the requirements of that level. All gymnasts at all levels will compete against each other. 


Child Safety and Working With Children Check

It is Gymnastics Victoria policy and a legal standard to sight a current, valid Working with Children Check (WWCC) or Victorian Institute of Teachers (VIT) card from all coaches, judges, officials, vendors and volunteers at all Gymnastics Victoria competitions.

At all Gymnastics Victoria events:
- All coaches, judges, officials, vendors and volunteers are required to present themselves to an authorised person with their current and valid WWCC or VIT card (and photo ID) and complete the sign in sheet per day of competition prior to access to the field of play;
- It is a requirement for coaches and judges to include their Technical Membership number when signing in;
- Coaches, judges, officials, vendors and volunteers must be easily identifiable on the field of play by means of either a wrist band or stamp to ensure they have presented their WWCC or VIT; and
- WWCC and VIT cards must be presented visually. A number alone is not sufficient, however a clear photograph of the card (on a mobile phone or similar) will satisfy the requirement. Persons under 18 are not required to have a WWCC, however it is highly recommended;
- Personnel required to present their WWCC are encouraged to take an image of the front and back of their card in case of misplacing/lost WWCC card.

Coaches, judges, officials, vendors and volunteers unable to provide a current and valid WWCC or VIT card at all 2018 GV Events or other events will NOT be permitted access to the field of play or to continue in their role at the event, and will NOT be eligible to receive updating points or a judge honorarium.

Coaches and Judges must sign in with their current and valid WWCC or VIT card and their current Technical Membership number in order to receive updating points and payment (where required). Where a person has not included this information on the sign in sheet, they will not receive updating points or payment.
