At Neath-Afan Gymnastics Club, our gymnasts are split into three squads:
Neath-Afan’s Artistic Gymnasts train for 3 or more days a week.
The Artistic Gymnasts are split into categories based on their competition pathway:
Elite Gymnasts: Compete at Compulsory and Voluntary Levels
National Gymnasts: Compete at National Grades and Challenge Cup or Intermediate.
Regional Gymnasts: Compete at Regional Grades and Intermediate or Novice.
Neath-Afan’s Development Gymnasts train for 2 to 3 days a week in Neath Afan Activity Centre.
The Development Gymnasts are split into categories based on their age pathway:
Development 3: Age 7-8
Development 2: Age 6-7
Development 1: Age 5-6
Neath-Afan’s Teams Gymnasts train for 1 to 2 days a week in Neath Afan Activity Centre.
The Teams Gymnasts are split into categories based on their age and ability:
Progressive Gymnasts: Work Through Progressive Levels 1-10 and Compete at Club Grades A and B
Club Gymnasts: Compete at Club Grades C, D and E
Novice Gymnasts: Compete at West Wales Novice and Club Grades D, E and F
At the end of each term, gymnasts are then returned to our Gymnastics programme, and are eligible for re-selection.
Gymnasts who are selected into a squad should be proud of their achievements but will need to work hard to earn their place for the next term!
