What can you wear to compete?

As a result of some parent feedback in 2023, a review was done into competition attire across all gymnastics sports. This included a comprehensive survey of competitive gymnasts that received well over 200 responses where our athletes told us they want to feel comfortable and safe, and so updates were made to reflect that.
