About the IRV
The IRV organises the World Championships, Team World Cup, coaching courses, judging courses, training and youth camps. It is also responsible for the international Code of Points and certification of international judges and coaches. The IRV is based in Switzerland and has an executive board and technical commission comprising nine representatives from different countries who work on a voluntary basis to pave the way forward for the federation.
There are three competitive disciplines within regular wheel gymnastics: straight-line, spiral and vault. Another form of wheel gymnastics, the Cyr wheel, was added to the IRV’s competitive programme in 2013. The Cyr wheel (a wheel with only one rim and no handles), with its alternative and innovative moves, provides an added dimension to the fascination of wheel gymnastics.
The IRV Executive Board is responsible for the operative leadership of the IRV. It carries out IRV business in line with the Mission Statement and the decisions of the General Assembly. All members of the IRV Executive Board are elected by the IRV General Assembly for a four year period of office.
The IRV World Championships offer a competitive arena for Wheel Gymnasts worldwide and are held every two years. The IRV has established two formats: The IRV All Around World Championships held every even years and the IRV Team World Championships held every odd years. Both competitions are open for junior and senior gymnasts.
