Competition Format

The Hoosier Cup will use of a modified capitol cup format for all other levels.

MODIFIED CAPITOL CUP FORMAT - Two sets of apparatus in one gym and where the first four squads (Flight 1) have timed warm-ups and competition on one set of apparatus, while the second four squads (Flight 2) have timed warm-ups and competition on the other set of apparatus.   As soon as the squads in Flight 1 finish timed warm-ups on their first event and begin competition, the four squads in Flight 2 begin their timed warm-ups on their first event. Once Flight 1 completes competition on the first event, the judges move to the other set of apparatus to judge Flight 2. The two flights continue to alternate between warm-up and competition until all eight squads have completed all four events. 2)Since the timed warm-ups are conducted on the competition apparatus immediately preceding the competition on the event, 30-second touch warm-ups are not required.
