All badge class children work through the British Gymnastics Proficiency awards working from badge 8 to badge 1, once they have passed badge 1 they will move into the advanced class. To pass these badges the gymnasts are assesed on 6 out of 10 moves from the badge sheets, once they are able to perform these moves they have then passsed their badge.
In the advanced class the gymnasts will work through the British Gymnastics Proficiency awards bronze, silver and gold. The gymnasts again have to pass 6 out 10 moves from each badge to pass their badges. We encourage the children to work all 10 moves on the badges to ensure they are working to their best ability.
All gymnasts are assessed every week on their badges. The coaches will send children home with a slip to say when they have passed the badge, badges can be purchased on reception at a cost of £3.00 for badge and certificates 8-2 and bronze, silver and gold, and £6.50 for badge and certificate 1 as this badge comes with a medal.
All our squads are preparing and working towards competitive gymnastics either on the Regional, National or Elite path depending on age and ability.
Squad classes are on an invite only basis, if your daughter shows potential, head coach will invite your daughter for a trial in a specific squad group which will best suit her age and abilty.
The gymnasts do one level of competition with their voluntary moves in and one grading competition which has set moves to be performed and one team competition per year.
