Over the next term all gymnasts will be offered the opportunity to take part in the British Gymnastics proficiency gymnastics programmes.
Depending on age of the gymnast and ability, we aim to offer every child the chance to succeed. This is done by matching the gymnasts’ ability to a level in the programme.
The awards progressively develop core skills and provide the gymnast with the motivation of earning rewards for achievement in the form of certificates, badges and a gold medal.
Some levels of award may be achieved easily while others may take a longer to achieve.
Children attending our pre school class will be following the reward programme, starting with 1st, 2nd and then 3rd. Click on this link to look at the skills contained within each level: BG preschool

Children attending our display class will be following the core and advanced programmes as above with a specific focus on the Pairs & Groups award as well as the Floor award and Dance & Aerobics award.
We try to keep a record of awards achieved and/or purchased by the parent/carer of the gymnast. Please check with our coaches to ensure we have the most up to date records during the first week of each term. This will help us to ensure the gymnasts are working on the level they should be.
