Proficiency Awards Scheme

The British Gymnastics Award Schemes provide the foundation for teaching high-quality gymnastics in a fun, friendly & progressive way. Almost 500k badges are sold each year for the British Gymnastics Award Schemes and they are continuing to provide Clubs, Schools & Leisure Centres with a source of income whilst encouraging and motivating children to progress to a higher level.

There are six schemes each with their own resource packs which include all of the relevant information to help in the delivery of the scheme. Flying Angels Gymnastics Club works towards three of the awards schemes.
