Inaugural European Gym for Life Challenge set to start week of gymnastics fun in Liege

July 13, 2018

Preview of the 1st European Gym for Life Challenge

A historical moment for the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG) on Saturday as it cooperates with the Belgian Gymnastics Federation to host the first ever European Gym for Life Challenge.

825 participants have registered, forming 38 groups from 12 countries!

What is the European Gym for Life Challenge?

At the European Gym for Life Challenge groups consisting of a minimum of 6 gymnasts born in 2006 or earlier can participate in a gymnastics festival and have their programme evaluated.

The aim is to improve the quality of group performances by giving an evaluation and feedback, including advice on how to improve.

Moreover, the EGFL provides the opportunity to create an interesting and exciting event in gymnastics, both for the gymnasts and for the audience. It’s also the chance to create a further tool in the field of choreography and to share the ‘know how’ in order to enhance the entire field of group performances / display.

Each performance will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Entertainment value
  • Innovation, originality and variety
  • Technique, quality and safety
  • Overall impression

The evaluation will be carried out by a panel of 4 experts who are experienced in the fields of performance, artistry, technique and choreography. Three people will give feedback to the coaches.



The event starts at 14:00 local time in the sports hall “Plaine de Cointe” in Liege (BEL). Find the programme here.
