Cardiff Central Youth Club have a long history of producing very high quality Novice Girls and Boys Gymnasts and this has never been more apparent than over the past couple of years; we have had some very successful Welsh Champions cross all age groups.
The current squad compete all four apparatus, vault, bars, beam and floor, in our area novice and Welsh novice competitions, they compete at club and regional grades, the squad also compete at local invitational’s, Welsh agility and Pre-liminary competitions. Novice gymnastics, unlike elite gymnastics is more focused on fitness and engagement. CCYC have a large contingent of 11 years plus girls who have gained many benefits from attending the squad. They have a common interest with their peers, they are keeping fit, and they remain in the gymnastics club system and often go on to become very good assistant coaches. They are disciplined; they show maturity and make hugely successful roles models to the younger gymnasts within the club system.
