The main objective of the sport is to perform three types of routines,

In acrobatic gymnastics, each routine is judged based on three components, artistic, execution and difficulty. The artistic component looks for choreography and moves in sync to music. Execution looks for technical aspects of the routine, and the Difficulty component looks for the degree of difficulty of the moves performed.

Points are awarded for each routine on a 10 point scale. The team with the most points for all three routines combined is declared as the winner.

Acrobatic Gymnastics/Sport Acrobatics is part of the World Games event, and is exclusively contested in the Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships.
