Under the leadership of FIG, there are two key world events:
(I) The World Gymnaestrada, held every four years since 1953, and is strictly for exhibition performance
(II) The World Gym for Life Challenge, introduced in 2009 and held alternatively every 4 years between World Gymnaestradas. This event allows groups the opportunity to be evaluated on creativity and originality.
Gymnastics Ireland has created two of its own National programmes that fall into this category: The Floor and GymSTART.
