Starting in Term 1 2021, we will have Recreational Artistic classes based on levels rather than age.
Moving to level-based classes will create a clear pathway to move our gymnasts forward and parents will be able to see their progress through our Friendly Manager online system.
In each level, gymnasts work towards a respective set of skills. Once they demonstrate the ability to do all skills of their level well and consistently, they can move up to the next level.
Boys and girls will be mixed in Level 1, working towards basic shapes and fundamental movements. From Level 2, boys will get the chance to participate in boys-only classes.
Level 2+ Artistic apparatuses
- Girls: Floor, Vault, Bars, Beam
- Boys: Floor, Vault, Metal Bar, P-Bars, Rings, Pommel Horse
Please note: Earlier classes will predominantly be for younger gymnasts. The later the class, the older the children. If your child is 9 years old, for example, we would recommend enrolling them into a later timeslot.
What do I do if I don’t know my child’s level?
If your child attended classes last term, you will see their Recreational Gymnastics Level under ‘Tag’ when logging onto their online profile. You can also see which skills your child has mastered and which they are still working towards to move to the next level.
Children aged 5-8yrs who are completely new to gymnastics will automatically start in Level 1. If your child is older and/or has done gymnastics before, please contact the office for guidance on what level your child should start in. firstname.lastname@example.org
