  • Gymnasts learn their routines in Class as part of our term. There are 10 levels in GymSTART, Gymnasts must form routines using the skills from their chosen level. While some of the levels may appear very simple, gymnastics is all about execution and hitting that perfect 10.0 rather than doing bigger skills untidily. Your gymnast’s coach will help decide an appropriate level for each child. Each child will receive a Medal after their routine in a Presentation Ceremony. This is a participation and personal achievement type event rather than a strict competitive event.
