Competitive Gymnastics

Competitive Gymnastics at Axminster currently offers 4 selected groups for those children who we feel have the correct attitude and physical potential to do competitive gymnastics. Entry to all groups is via a trial and the ability to meet the set criteria. These groups are split into the following:

Women’s Advanced Recreation/Intermediate

1.25 hr – 2.5hrs training for girls aged 5+ 

These groups are for children to progress along an advanced recreational route and compete locally on 2 or 3 pieces out of Floor, Vault, Trampette + Beam.

We have two options for girls/women’s squads which are Mixed Squad + Artistic Squad

2 hours training (girls and boys aged 6-16yrs)

This is a performance based group who spend all their time working on floor skills, flexibility and strength work specifically on routine work for shows and displays which includes some pair and group work.

They will participate in a number of displays or shows per year and may get additional opportunity to do individual competition on a variety of apparatus.
