Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is a creative blend of daring and control; powerful yet refined, elegant yet strong. Mastery on the four apparatus requires skills that flip, balance, swing and soar.

  • Enhances co-ordination and agility, for body awareness and balance
  • Develops posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely
  • Enhances creativity and builds self-confidence, for sport and life
  • Develops strength and flexibility, for life’s constant challenges
  • Develops healthy minds and bodies for now and later life

 

The four competitive apparatus in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics are:

Vault – a 20m sprint to the vaulting table followed by springing onto and off the hands and landing perfectly on the other side. Extra rotations at any point increase the difficulty.

Uneven Bars – requiring strength, precision, rhythm, concentration and courage; the gymnast moves from one bar to the other, alternating grip changes, releases and regrasps, saltos and changes of direction with circular swings.

Beam – balance at its most extreme, adding an extra element to the acrobatic sequences, gymnastic jumps and turns. It is an exercise not only of flexibility, but also of concentration, rhythm and expression.

Floor – a creative combination of expressive dance, daring acrobatics and powerful gymnastics performed to music, where each gymnast communicates her own personality and style.

Men’s Artistic Gymnastics channels masculine energy to develop power, strength and control. Mastery of the six apparatus requires the skillful combination of flips, balance, stretch, spin and landings.

 

Men’s Artistic Gymnastics:

  • Builds strength and prepares the body for the challenges in life
  • Enhances co-ordination and agility, allowing the body to move like lightning
  • Develops posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely
  • Challenges the mind and body to reach new goals
  • Develops healthy minds and bodies for now and later life

Experience Men’s Artistic Gymnastics and feel the exhilaration of being in control as you fly and swing. It is the perfect sport for focus and self-discipline.

 

There are six competitive apparatus in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG):

Floor – an exercise in pure acrobatics, alternating between powerful tumbling series and the composure necessary for balance and strength elements.

Pommel Horse – routines mostly involve circles of the legs together and pendulous, scissor swings with the legs split, spectacularly combining these movements while turning and travelling along the horse.

Rings – difficult combination of strength and swinging elements requiring control, strength and balance in the forward and backward swings and strength holds.

Vault – a 25m sprint creates the necessary power to explode from the board before the dynamic push off the table, to generate greater height for rotations and flight before landing on the other side.

Parallel Bars – routines require swinging above and below the bars with acrobatic flight, changes of directions and precise balances, ending in a dramatic dismount off the side or the end of the bars.

Horizontal Bar – a spectacular apparatus, largely due to the combination and variation of giant swings, acrobatic releases and re-grasp flight elements. The high dismounts from the bar allows the gymnast to show his acrobatic talents and landing prowess.

In this co-ed class your child will focus on building their skills on the trampoline, double mini trampoline and tumbling.

Levels:

Bronze TnT 4 & up

Silver TnT 4 & up

Trampoline Gymnastics is the perfect sport for bold high-flyers who want to jump, sault, twist and enjoy being airborne. Whether you bounce on the trampoline, the double mini tramp or flip down the tumble track, the fundamental skills are the same and lead on to an amazing awareness of where your body is in space.

 

Trampoline Gymnastics:

  • Develops confident body movement, both on and off the ground
  • Builds strength and prepares the body for challenges in life
  • Challenges the mind and body to reach new goals
  • Develops posture and agility, including the ability to land safely
  • Is a fun way to develop incredible spatial awareness

 

TNT caters for adults and children wanting to keep fit and train with their friends. The fundamental skills can be refined and combined to create exciting routines with multiple twists and rotations in every jump.

 

There are four competitive disciplines of Trampoline & Tumbling:

Trampoline: A single competitor performs routines combining ten different skills, judged and scored on the quality of performance, the degree of difficulty and the time of flight.

Synchronized Trampoline: Two competitors bounce on separate trampolines, aiming to match their skilled performances to perfection. (Team level)

Double-Mini Trampoline: Two skills are performed in sequence, one on the DMT bed and one to dismount

Tumbling: Tumblers perform two passes demonstrating sequences of forward, backward and sideward skills, rotating from hands to feet and feet to feet.
