Frequently Asked Questions

When will you post the event schedule?

This is the most common question – especially for parents newer to the sport! Please note that with really large events, we spend a lot of time working to make the schedule meet the best needs of all of the coaches, judges, and of course, most importantly, the athletes. We do our best to ensure the schedule is posted and circulated approximately four weeks before the event but certainly will post earlier if at all possible!

Why is there a two-night minimum stay when staying at the Kalahari Resort?

This is a standard policy of the Kalahari. The gymnastics event organizers do not have control over the hotel accommodation policies.


The gymnastics meet discounted room block is ‘full’ – are you able to open up more rooms at this discounted rate?

Unfortunately, no. We have a limited block available per resort policy and once the block fills, we are unable to expand the block. Please note the block often fills within days of opening! The gymnastics event organizers do not have control over the hotel accommodation policies.

Does registration in the meet include a waterpark pass?

Unfortunately, due to resort popularity and capacity restrictions, this is not possible at this time. However, ALL those staying as guests of the resort receive waterpark passes as part of their reservation!

Do gymnasts receive discounted waterpark passes?

Unfortunately, due to resort popularity and capacity restrictions, this is not possible at this time.

Do gymnasts receive a leotard or t-shirt as a gift for participation?

All registered gymnasts receive a custom Luau Invite t-shirt (coaches receive these for distribution to the gymnasts)!

How do you do awards at the Luau?

We run our awards a little differently. We like to call it “Luau-Style” – and it moves very FAST! Your athlete will receive their awards for each event in the staging area and when their level and age-group are recognized, they will present for awards in the podium area already in order. We give 100% of gymnasts an All-Around medal, and medals to the top 50% for all individual events!

How do we keep up to date with the latest event information?

We try to keep this website up to date, but please “like” our event Facebook page to get the latest information as the event approaches!
