Mens Artistic Squads

Our men’s artistic squads are by invitation only and are aimed at competitive gymnastics. Gymnasts in this squad can be aged 5+.

Boys in the squad will train on all 6 men’s artistic apparatus (floor, pommel, rings, vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar). Gymnasts will also follow a flexibility and physical preparation program to supplement apparatus training.

The squad is split into pre-development, development, and performance squads. With each squad there is an increase in training hours ranging from 2 hours a week, to 16(+) hours a week.

Pre- development gymnasts will work on basic gymnastics skills and when old/ prepared enough may compete in competitions at county/ regional level.

The development squad will begin working to the British gymnastics’ national competitive program/ grades, and also towards regional/ national level competitions. These gymnasts will also be encouraged to prepare for regional squad selections.

The performance squad gymnasts will work towards regional and national level competitions, and will be encouraged to prepare for regional squad selections.

Gymnasts are expected to regularly attend all of their given sessions.
