Competition Floor Pro Members have access to the competition floor. Due to members arriving early to a session, or using their pro membership to gain access to the floor when they are not actually coaching, only the coaches with gymnasts competing in the current session (and actively coaching) will be allowed on the competition floor unless they are serving in an official capacity.
Video Taping on the Floor IS NOT ALLOWED If you intend to videotape your gymnasts while they compete (using iPad, cell phone, video camera, etc), you must do so from the spectator area. Will be enforced by the meet director / meet referee / committee member
