CCYC are always thinking of new and innovative ways in which to keep gymnasts within the sport of gymnastics. As a nation the average drop out age of gymnasts in artistic gymnastics is approximately 11years old. CCYC appreciate that these gymnasts could in fact still have huge amount to give to give to our sport. With this in mind, last year we started looking into different disciplines, which we could offer. We currently run a very successful tumbling squad with rec classes feeding into our squad system. We are looking into running DMT classes – more news to follow, and we are now starting TeamGym classes.
Is your gymnasts struggling with bars or beam, or does the thought of learning new beam skills scare them, a TeamGym could be for them. TeamGym consists of tumbling, vaulting using a trampet and trampet work…..at higher levels there is the opportunity to do a synchronised floor routine as well.
Our classes will run on a Tuesday 5:30-7:30 and in a Sunday 12-2pm. These classes can be incorporated into your current training schedules.
If your gymnast would like to try a TeamGym come along on Tuesday 10th and Tuesday 17th at 5:30 (on the tumbling side of CCYC), and have a go and register your interest.
British Gymnastic has identified TeamGym as a focus work area for Gymnastics for All as it contributes to the participation motivations highlighted within the Participant Model for Gymnastics, demonstrating its ability to grow participation through retaining members and reducing drop-out. The development of new participation, display and competitive opportunities for the TeamGym audience will enthuse and motivate the British Gymnastics community to stay engaged and be retained within the sport.
