Interclub competitions are held annually, usually in July and August.
Interclubs are a great opportunity for Members to practise performing in front of an audience, self-assess how you are progressing with the syllabus and "match fitness" and are a great way to prepare for the upcoming competition season.
Interclubs involve a small number of clubs (usually 4 – 6) and Members compete in their age group or section in heats of about 10-14 girls.
Judges are required to have completed the APDA judging course and the APDA judging system is used. Places are awarded to each heat.
Randwick competes in a minimum of two interclub's each year. Most years we host our own interclub, as well as entering 'away' competitions hosted by other Clubs.
When we host an interclub it is the major fundraiser for our Club. We call for volunteers to help out on the day with tasks such as canteen, selling raffle tickets, BBQ duty, marshalling... just to name a few!
At an interclub competition, APDA rules and codes of conduct apply. Some key points are:
- All competitors must wear an approved APDA leotard
- No teasing of hair, no tanning and only minimal makeup for Juniors (up until 12 years)
- No flowers, feathers, glitter, diamantes, wigs or hats are permitted
Team competitions are usually held in September. You will compete in teams made up of six or eight members, representing our Club, Randwick. Team competitions are judged on correct execution and performance of the syllabus, unison, timing and formations.
Members must have matching leotards for Team competitions which are available in styles and colours approved by APDA (fishnet tights may be required for 11yrs+). Team leotards can be hired from the club for a small fee. You can also buy an approved APDA leotard from the preferred provider. Your teacher will advise of the selected style and colour for your team.
Hair, makeup and hair accessories will need to be identical to your teammates’ and your teacher will advise on this closer to the event. The Club will provide these hair accessories.
