For Parents: Competition Info
Can parents bring photo and video cameras?
We will allow family members to video and photograph their child's' or friends' performance as long as it is done from their seat and in an unobtrusive or distracting manner. It is expected that this video or photo is for personal use and therefore professional type equipment, videoing or photographing multiple performances, (i.e. an entire division, or every team from a gym) simply cannot be allowed. Tripods are not allowed.
