In order for each gymnast to reach their full potential the club provides various paths for the individual to follow. Some gymnasts can be identified as talented as young as 4 or 5 years old, other gymnasts develop later. Gymnasts will be grouped according to their ability, development stage, commitment and individual needs.

Gymnasts will build good foundations for all routes of gymnastics.

The gymnasts in this group are taught the solid basics needed to reach competitive standard later on in their gymnastic career. Gymnasts who have reached the top end of the age group are moved on and placed in a suitable group within the academy in which they can continue to progress as a gymnast in a group suited to their ability.
 
Notts Gymnastics Academy Women’s Artistic Squad operates a team coaching policy. The primary coaches will have responsibility for the group, however all coaches will be given opportunities to work at various levels.

Any holidays should be arranged to accommodate for competitions. Summer holidays should be taken in the last weeks of July or first weeks of August.

Please try to arrive ten minutes before your session begins and allow ten minutes after each session for admin and de-briefing the gymnasts.

missed. If gymnasts cannot attend all sessions set for their particular group,
coaches will look for a more suitable group.*
