Competitor’s Trials

We have dedicated competition squads for General Gymnastics, Women’s Artistic, Trampoline and DMT. All of the squads have a clear focus on preparation for and performance at competition and, as a result, there are expectations placed by the club on competitors’ and their parents.

We recruit for our competitors’ squads by holding trials when we have spaces available. This gives all of our club members the same opportunity to achieve a place in our competitors’ squads however there are certain expectations that they will be assessed against at the trial.

All of our competitors’ sessions are charged at the same hourly rate as our mainstream recreational sessions, most of which include some compulsory strength and flexibility training. however the club operates a discount across all classes that reduced the cost of sessions after the first 4 hours per week. This is applied per family. Competitors have a minimum number of hours that they are required to train per week which depends on the level they are competing at.

Competitors will be required to attend each appropriate competition that their coach selects. We anticipate this will be 3-4 competitions per year for new competitors at a cost of £7.50 – £15 per competition. Before beginning to compete all competitors must have purchased the necessary club kit (Leotard, shorts if male, tracksuit top, tracksuit bottoms and t-shirt) at an approximate cost of £115 for child sizes and £160 for adult sizes.

Trampoline

Competitors will be marked, as they would in competition on the ‘Northern Closed’ routines that they would compete for their age group. The will also be asked to show their most difficult skills and have an assessment of their strength and flexibility.
