Gymnastics combines strength, flexibility and artistry. Artistic gymnastics is a discipline of gymnastics where gymnasts perform short routines (ranging from approximately 30 to 90 seconds) on different apparatus, with less time for vaulting.
Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, dance and apparatus manipulation. Individuals or teams of competitors (from 2 to 6 people) manipulate one or two pieces of apparatus: rope, clubs, hoop, ball, ribbon and free (no apparatus - called "floor routine").
If you are an athlete or coach interested in participating in gymnastics, select your county on the right to find your area program.
The culminating event for gymnastics takes place at the State Summer Games in Mt. Pleasant in early June.
