#1

Welcome to the July Competition guide! Olympic Gymnast Competition (OGC) hosts a gymnastic competition once a month. Each gymnast will show their routine for each of the four events (vault, beam, bars, and floor), and a judge will score them based on deductions and routine requirements. Any member of OGC is able to compete, as long as you signed up and are scheduled to compete. The following document has rules, information, signups, and the schedule you will need to participate in the competition. Remember to check out this guide as well if you have any questions not answered here.

Competition Rules:

Follow all Roblox community guidelines and rules. Everyone is expected to follow Roblox’s community guidelines at all time. Please review Roblox’s rules here.

  • Be a good sport and be respectful. Putting down other gymnasts, teams, or groups is disrespectful. Please be supportive, and don’t talk badly of others. It’s not about winning, it’s about bringing the community together.

  • Arrive on time and be organized. Arriving late for your scheduled time to compete will result in disqualification. Make sure you know what time you’re competing and arrive on time. We cannot allow routine/event redos or start-overs. Remember to convert time zones from EDT (Eastern Timezone), which is used on the schedule.

  • If you are not competing, please spectate though the livestream. Spots on the server is reserved for gymnasts scheduled and staff, and it will be a tight squeeze. If you wish to spectate, you can watch through a livestream here.

July Competition Changes

There are several differences and changes that took place last month:

  • Gymnasts can opt into participating in the Pommel Horse event. This is completely optional, and it does not affect All-Around or Team scores. This event is in development, and we’d love to see some gymnasts try it out.

  • We will have “sign ins” for every time session. At the start of every time session, all gymnasts will have to sign in with a staff member to show they are present. Gymnasts cannot arrive late, and signing in isn’t optional.

Competition Signups and Schedules:

On the first week of July, gymnasts are able to sign up for the competition. If all signup information is valid, accurate, those gymnasts will be scheduled until the cap of 75 per level/time session is filled.

If all available spots are taken and you sign up later in the week, there is a possibility you may not be scheduled. Based on previous months, Novice is the fasted filling level.

There are seven competition time sessions throughout the day on Saturday, July 21st. We will schedule around 75 gymnasts per time session, per level, maximum!

The competition signups are closed.

Gymnast Scenario Example
(to better understand what to do on competition day)

  • Jane has signed up correctly and found herself on the Novice schedule for 10:00am EDT.

  • Prior to the competition, Jane will practice her four event routines and ensure they meet the Novice routine requirements. As well, she will make sure she’s a member of the OGC group, as the competition will be group only.

  • It is competition day. Around 9:45am EDT, she will prepare to join the competition server. Each server on the OGC game will be for a different competition level (there are four). Upon joining a server, the top of the game (server message) will say what level it is. She will find the Novice server and wait for the event to start at 10:00am EDT, and sign in.

  • At 10:00am EDT, a judge will individually teleport gymnasts on the schedule to watch their event routines. Jane will wait her turn patiently and make sure she doesn’t go AFK (in case she misses her turn). If she does happen to miss an event, she will not be able to re-do it.

  • Jane has completed all four events, and she can leave and spectate on the livestream.

  • The next day (on Sunday), Jane is free to watch the awards on the YouTube channel at 12:00pm EDT to congratulate gymnasts and teams.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I am not on the schedule, why not?
    If you are not on the schedule, it means your signup was invalid or you were too late signing up. Most commonly, it is from invalid song IDs, multiple signups, and not agreeing to the terms, or signing up after spots fill up.

  • Why didn’t I get to do one of my routines?
    If you did not compete in one of the events, it means you were either AFK, in the wrong server, or out of the game during your call. Due to time constraints and fairness, we cannot have re-dos or have certain gymnasts make up for what they’ve missed.

  • What if I don’t have a team?
    Many gymnasts in the OGC competition compete as an individual gymnast. It is essentially the same, but you don’t compete for a certain team or contribute towards a team award. You may wear whatever leotard or athletic outfit you wish.

  • I have a question and it’s not mentioned here, what should I do?
    You should tweet to @RobloxGymnastic (we may not see direct messages, so send a tweet), or ask fellow gymnasts in game or on the group wall, or ask a staff member. We’re happy to help!

Best of luck to everyone competing this month! It’s not about winning, but bringing the community together.
