LWGC AWARDS!

At LWGC we have designed and developed our own fun and progressive awards scheme. All our Gymnasts from Gymstars Preschool upwards work their way through a great range of certificates and medals

At the end of every term we host a very special 'Awards Week' during which gymnasts are presented with certificates, medals and sometimes even trophies!

The order of the certificates is as follows:

 

Gymstars Preschool:

  • RISING STAR

  • SHINING STAR

  • SHOOTING STAR

  • SUPER STAR

In our pre school classes gymnasts develop strength, flexibility, fine and gross motor skills, jumping, rolling, swinging and much much more! All of this is delivered through themed sessions where gymnasts have the opportunity to use their imagination and explore their natural abilities as gymnasts! 

Our pre school awards are structured to progressively take our budding superstars through a range of skills and award them as they go!

General Gymnastics: (from Reception upwards) 

  • 1. STAR

  • 2. RED

  • 3. YELLOW

  • 4. GREEN

  • 5. BLUE

  • 6. PURPLE

  • 7. BRONZE

  • 8. SILVER

  • 9. GOLD

  • 10. DIAMOND

Gymnasts develop skills on Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor (including fast track and air track) and can achieve certificates for individual apparatus per level.

4 Certificates per level:

Vault

Bars

Beam

Floor

To fully complete a level, gymnasts will gain a certificate for each piece of apparatus (4 certificates) and will be awarded a medal with a corresponding coloured ribbon. When all four certificates are put together they make one big one and the jigsaw of a star can be seen to come together!

All certificates, medals and trophies are included in your monthly fees, we do not charge extra.
