Quickly becoming the nation’s premier gymnastics event, the California Grand Invitational Collegiate Challenge presented by Under Armour and produced by Gold Medal Gym relies on the expertise of Performance Stage, Inc. to provide the competition podium for elite NCAA athletes from around the country. This season saw competition from Arizona State, UCLA, University of Denver, University of Oklahoma, Auburn University, University of California, Penn State and Stanford. For this event, Performance Stage provided nearly 10,000 sq. ft. of decking to create a 36” tall stage, known as a “podium” in the gymnastics world for each of the events (Uneven Bars, Floor Exercise, Balance Beam and Vault). In addition to the decking, Performance Stage has designed and manufactured a custom weight system to enable the tensioned lines in the Uneven bars to tie down to the top of the deck exactly like they would on a concrete or wood floor in an actual gym. This eliminates the need for freestanding weights to be placed on top of the podium and in the way of the athletes and the spectators and instead moves them underneath the podium completely out of sight. Full carpeting on top of the podium as well as around the entire perimeter of the podium was also provided and installed as part of this setup.
In addition to Staging, we also provide full production services including Truss, Rigging, Lighting, A/V, and production support. Click the Request Quote link for your next event!
