Format of Competition

The competition took place on multiple days. Similar to the National Championships, not everyone had to compete the all-around. The gymnasts who specialized and only competed certain events had to scratch (touch the apparatus then salute the judges) on the apparatus they chose not to compete.

Senior gymnasts competed both compulsory and optional routines while junior gymnasts only competed optional routines.
