PGC is a skill-for-skill competition with teams consisting of both men and women squaring off against each other for true athletic supremacy. PGC athletes will deliver a jaw-dropping performance as they battle head-to-head to finally settle who is the best!
Pro Gymnastics Challenge is a skill for skill competition with mixed teams of men and women. There is offense and defense. The team on the Offensive performs a skill or sequence of skills after which the defensive team attempts to do that skill or sequence of skills better. The winner is determined by referees and the winning team gains the point or points and offensive control. In the event of a tie the audience votes to decide the winner. On each event the winning team is the first one to 10 points excluding the speed ropes which are a time challenge.
|PGC Consists of Six Events:|
|Parallel Bars and Uneven Bars|
|Rings and Balance Beam|
|High Bar and Single Rail|
“Double Down, Double the Points, Double Risk.” An athlete can double down when they miss a skill (a do over). A double down can only be called once per event.
Freestyle can be called for one point. This is a nonconventional gymnastics move. The defensive team does not have to do the exact move/skill or sequence but their own version of that freestyle move/skill or sequence. The determination of the winner goes straight to the audience – no referees/judges involved!!!
A head-to-head challenge is a callout directed toward one individual on the opposing team for a specific skill. The challenged individual can decline or accept the challenge. If the challenge is accepted and successfully completed, the winning team receives two points. If the challenge is declined, the team on offense must complete “the call out skill” successfully for one point. The competition then goes back to normal play. (The Call Out is actually a competition within the competition).
An athlete may be called off the bench and into action (only on defense) to perform a skill or sequence. This is only allowable once per event for each team.
