Competition Squads

This is an invitation only class - Children will be selected to join the class based on their ability level. We are constantly monitoring the ability of gymnasts who attend our Recreational and Girls Improvers classes. We also run tasters in the summer for specific age groups. 

Squad gymnasts must wear leotards during their session and during competitions are expected to wear our club leotard and jumper. These are available to buy for squad girls on request at our gym.

Gymnasts who are placed in a Competitive Squad class work towards various competitions throughout the year. Gymnasts compete at different levels based on their age and ability, working their way from novice competitions to regional and national levels.
