2017 SCHEDULE - as of 2/21/17

Below is a link for the competition schedule for the 2017 Pink Invitational. The gyms will all be located in Hall A  this year, and the college meet on Friday night will be held at 6 p.m. in Gym E. Please note that the schedule is subject to change. View Schedule



1. Remember that the idea behind every gymnast competing in the same Pink leo is that they are uniting for the cause, as one team. Therefore, please refrain from wearing any adornments, warmups or apparel that cover the leo at march-in.
2. The Pink leo does not come with a scrunchie as most teams create their own hair ribbons/bows, scrunchies, etc. Be creative and have fun with this!
3. The judges will NOT deduct for pink fingernail polish, hair streaks or small face tattoos during competition.
4. If you are unsure or have any questions about what you are thinking of doing with your team, feel free to message us here on facebook!

If you are new to the meet, take a look at the photo galleries on facebook and our website to see what teams have done in the past (keeping in mind the notes above), or come up with your own artistic look!

Can my daughter's team wear any pink accessories during march in? We encourage teams to show their

       spirit! However, we do ask that they not wear team warmups or a shirt that entirely covers their leo.
