Training

The club runs both recreational classes and squad training for gymnasts from age 4 upwards and for all levels of ability.  Gymnasts work on all four pieces of Artistic equipment (Bars, Beam, Floor & Vault) and work towards the British Gymnastics’ badge award scheme. Squad gymnasts also undertake strengthening and conditioning in preparation for competition.  Training is tailored towards the specific level of each class/squad in order to encourage self-awareness, social skills and self-confidence.

Squads

Gymnasts are assessed regularly for their suitability to attend Squad training. If they are invited to join the squads they are expected to progress and achieve targets and compete at County and Regional competitions if selected by the club.  Progression is usually through Imps or Castle Squads through to Cathedral, Baron or Knights. Squads train between 3 hours per week (Imps) up to 8 ½ hours per week (Knights) and monthly subscriptions for the squads are payable monthly by standing order. Additional invitational squad training is available

*Gymnasts from other clubs or moving into the area are welcome to apply to join the club and should indicate their level of ability when enquiring and a tester session can be arranged for an assessment and a place offered if appropriate, subject to available spaces in the squads.
