SQUADS ZOOM SESSION OVERVIEW
During the next 4 weeks we will be working towards the British Gymnastics Award Scheme for Advanced Gymnastics – Advanced Proficiency.
This scheme is built around a number of key categories of which we will be focusing on Fitness and Floor. The gymnasts will achieve their award for both categories by completing all Zoom sessions. See timetable for squad zoom sessions.
These skills have been adapted to be safe for gymnasts to work through at home.
The skills are broken down into progressive levels of Bronze, Silver and Gold
Our gymnasts have made such progress this half term and we want to keep moving forwards. These Zoom sessions will not only allow for gymnasts to achieve a British Gymnastics award during this time but will keep them progressing in their sport.
We have also scheduled some fun and interactive challenges to keep our gymnasts motivated and connected to their LWGC team
We passionately believe that keeping children engaged with their sport, having tangible goals to work towards and keeping a level of normality and routine will have a huge positive impact on our children’s mental well-being.
It is parents/guardians choice as to whether you purchase these awards or not.
