Our competitive programme is by invitation only and has a range of groups from Intermediates through to our Regional Level Women’s Artistic Squad. Gymnasts are selected for these groups based on both their physical and mental qualities. A lot of hard work and dedication is expected from all gymnasts as well as attendance to training during school holidays.
Under 8’s – 2 hours per week
This is often the first step for children aged between 5 and 7 years that we feel show some of the physical and mental attributes required for higher level gymnastics. This group work on the foundations; building their strength and flexibility as well as the basic skills needed to move forward with good technique and style.
Intermediate and Advanced – 2.5 / 3 hours per week.
We have both junior, senior and boy’s intermediate groups. Gymnasts are often selected from within our general gymnastics classes where they show dedication and willingness to work hard as well as demonstrating the physical qualities required. Our intermediate gymnasts take part in various inter club and invitational competitions within Hampshire and Sussex.
Squad – 6 - 10 hours per week
Gymnasts selected for our squad must show extremely high levels of commitment and a real passion for gymnastics. Conditioning and basics are worked hard upon as are new skills and routines. Gymnasts within our squads either participate within the ‘general gymnastics ‘ competition or the ‘Women’s Artistic’ side.
