The gymnasts are given the opportunity to improve their individual gymnastics skills in the group aimed at Tumbling and Acrobatics. The gymnast’s ages generally range from 4 years to 6.5 years old.
Pre-Development gymnasts are taught individual skills in a manner appropriate for their ages. The children will compete in our annual club competition, school displays, fetes and festivals during the summer months, as well as our renowned club gala display.
The group train once a week:
· Tuesdays 16.00-18.00
For each training session, Pre-Development gymnasts will be expected to have their hair up, socks for the trampoline, trainers in the spring/summer for running, leotard, shorts and a drink. Parents will be expected to contact the coach/office for lateness or illness and holiday form must be filled out and granted before booking any events.
All Pre-Development gymnasts are required to purchase club kit once in the development squad:
· Club T-shirt
· Club black hoodie
· Club leotard and ribbon (Leotards are only worn at events/competitions)
· White plain socks & black leggings (not purchased through the club)
For more information or to order club kit, please contact Anna Tapper
Pre-Development is an invitation only group, coaches will select children from our Tumble Bobs, Recreational or advanced classes. Each child will have a 1 month trial period. This group provides good grounding in order for the gymnasts to move onto either our Acro Development, Tumbling Development or Regional Acrobatics.
