Spring Gymnastics has earned the reputation of being one of the top performance clubs in the County at low level Woman’s Artistic and General Gymnastics competitions. We are proud to have produced many county champions and regional medalists. This has all happened in a relatively short time and we feel this comes from positive and proactive coaching, keeping up with the latest techniques and methods and having wonderful, talented gymnasts to coach!
The first rung of the competitive ladder involves being selected to join a squad group where the gymnasts are expected to attend regularly, work hard and show that they are consistently positive and determined to improve their gymnastics. Squad gymnasts will either take the General Gymnastics route or follow the Women’s/Men’s Artistic pathways.
Gymnasts in our General Gymnastics squads can expect to take part in the annual Norfolk County Competition, and will be given opportunities to take part in several friendly events throughout the year. General Gymnastics enables competitors to compete on individual pieces of apparatus as oppose to contesting an all around position.
Gymnasts in our Women’s and Men’s Artistic Squads can expect to take part in county competitions once or twice each year, and may have the opportunity to take part in friendly events and competitions. Artistic gymnastics requires a high level of refinement and precision and is therefore naturally more selective. For all gymnasts joining an artistic squad, the initial two months act as a trial period on both sides and changes may be made at the end of the review period. However, we operate a continuing system of review for all of our squad gymnasts to ensure that they continue to train at a suitable level and subsequently receive the best possible experience they can whilst at Spring.
