Hornsby RSL Youth Club Gymnastics runs a Women's Gymnastics (WG) Competitive program catering for gymnasts in National Levels 1-10. Our programs follows set guidelines and routines laid out by Gymnastics Australia and Gymnastics NSW.
Gymnastics is a fantastic sport that will teach your daughter many important life skills and contribute to her overall general health and fitness. It will help to develop her confidence and self esteem whilst making great friends and memories at the same time!
Here are some of the benefits of Women's Artistic Gymnastics:
◾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
Our Competitive Program is broken down into the following two programs:
1. Gems Program (for gymnasts working towards Level 1 and 2)
2. Squads Program (for gymnasts working towards Level 3-10)
THE GEMS PROGRAM
The Gems Program is made up of two types of classes, Junior Gems and Gems. The program is based on the Foundation Program (Levels 1 and 2) as set down by Gymnastics Australia and is a developmental pathway designed to prepare gymnasts who show an increased potential for gymnastics at an early age. This pathway can lead into the club’s Competitive Squads Program (Levels 3-10), which is based on the Australian Levels Program, or our Advanced Recreational Program.
In our Junior Gems program, gymnasts are working towards Level 1. In our Gems program, gymnasts are working towards Level 2. Although the emphasis of the Gems program is not on competitions, gymnasts will have the opportunity to participate in invitational competitions, which are run in a fun and flexible format. It is our aim for all gymnasts in the Gems Program to develop a good understanding of the techniques used to perform good quality gymnastics basics, which will lay the foundations for more difficult skills in the future.
THE SQUADS PROGRAM
Our squads program is for those gymnasts participating in Levels 3-10. Gymnasts in these levels show a high level of commitment to their training and are passionate about gymnastics! Gymnasts in our squads program are required to increase their training hours, in line with the level in which they are competing, this ensures all our gymnasts are confident and competent at the skills they are required to perform in their routines.
Our Squads Program consists of the following training squads: Opal, Pearl, Emerald, Ruby, Diamond and Sapphire Squads.
Gymnasts are placed in a squad which best reflects their skill level and most suitable training hours for their stage of development. Gymnasts in our Squads Program have the opportunity to compete in local, region, state and national events.
