Rhythmic Gymnastics Score Archive

Rhythmic Gymnastics Score Archive

The idea of having a permanent datastore for scores has been around for a long time. Every now and then, questions like how many gymnasts was at the Western Regionals for the last 5 years? What was the average score at the time? How far apart are the juniors from the seniors? Do you remember when we open up Easterns/ Westerns to provincial stream gymnasts? What if we change the point system for national team ranking, does it look reasonable? Is the sport trending up or down in participation? The scores are posted on club sites, provincial websites and sometimes only printed paper. Furthermore, volunteers come and go and data gets removed off-site(s) after a couple of years. All these makes the task of doing researches on the sport very difficult. The goal of this site is to help assemble all these scores at a central place. Right now, the archive has scores of the GCG championships Westerns and Easterns starting from 2006.

On a forward going basis, all clubs using the scoring program are welcome to announce their competitions (or post-competition with a photo or two). Scores can be uploaded through me initially but if you have a yearly recurring event, you are most welcome to ask for a ftp user ID. As a meet director or club/provincial executive, you can request an editor user ID to post on the blog. Eventually this blog will be link to the facebook page so people can respond to a blog post through facebook comments. Competition season is coming up and so hopefully this site will come in handy.

This is just the start and hopefully with everyone working together, we can build something that is interesting and educational together.
