All 2019 WAG Music will be released from the 2019 WAG Music Register on 30th November 2019.
The 2020 WAG Music Register will open on 1st December 2019 for registrations. Any gymnast / club wishing to use the same piece of music in 2020 is required to re-register the same piece. Please complete the online form here to register and upload floor routine music for 2020.
Please note, the music file MUST be named in the following format (and uploaded as a .mp3);
Gymnast First Name Last Name - Competition Number - Level - Club Name -Name of music track Name of artist or Name of composer.mp3
Duplicate or similar music will be permitted to be used by multiple gymnasts in the same level and/or across multiple levels, however the choreography must be significantly different. For example:-

• contact the WAG SMC requesting that the previous club release the music and / or choreography for the gymnasts / new club to use unconditionally
• the WAG SMC will contact the relevant club, make the request on their behalf and inform the gymnasts / new club of any outcomes
• the WAG SMC will remain impartial, and outcomes in relation to these matters are final
The deadline of submitting music for use at competitions has not changed and all music must be submitted via the online form within one week of competition entry closing date.

i.e. Mary Smith - 1234 – Level 7 - ABC Gymnastics Academy - Happy Birthday - Mildred & Patty.mp3
