Development Group (or Pre-Levels) by selection only

Gymnasts wanting to convert from General Gymnastics to Levels Gymnastics undergo a transitional period. They will build on their skills and increase strength and flexibility. All in preparation for the competitive stream of Artistic Gymnastics.

Levels Gymnastics

The four artistic apparatuses are:-

Gymnasts need to use their athletic qualities as they run with speed at a sprung board and then onto the vault where they will transfer the speed they have gained from the run into power as the perform a combination of aerial and acrobatic skills in the air prior to landing onto soft matting.
Best explained as poetry in motion, gymnasts need precision as they perform a sequence of swinging movement predominantly continuous to make up a bars routine.
 
On beam, gymnasts need to display a combination of jumps, turns and acrobatic sequences. To achieve this they need to have flexibility as well as power. Beam is truly a conquest of balance and concentration.
On floor gymnasts get to express their grace and personality. They perform a choreographed routine to music where they alter between powerful acrobatic tumbling sequence incorporating their gym skills and a dance element. This is the only artistic apparatus done to music. This apparatus allows the gymnast to show their individuality with originality and artistry as the key element.
