The Development Squad training is a stepping stone towards a National Gymnastics stream. Development training focuses on the basic skills, coordination and strength elements for these apparatus. Each gymnast will have their strengths and weaknesses and all will progress at different rates. While skills and strength are essential components of training, the children enjoy games, free play and social interactions with gymnasts their own age as well. Development Squad trains on Saturday’s from 10:00 am-11:30 am and Thursdays 3:45pm-5:15pm – the gymnasts must wear the compulsory training uniform (can be purchased in the Office). Development training is an invitation only class. Selection in to this training group does not automatically guarantee a place in a National Squad in future.
