Flying Angels Gymnastics Club’s Recreational program focuses on Fun filled sessions:
Recreational classes focus on improving balance, strength and coordination. Following some stretches and basic body positions, the class will explore different equipment each week. Recreational Gymnastics sessions also include working on proficiency awards using floor and vault, and other soft play apparatus. Gymnasts also get the opportunity to train on additional apparatuses, which for both boys and girls include BEAM, BARS, RINGS, PARALLEL BAR plus TRAMPETTE & TRAMPOLINE. Recreational groups also take part in our gymnastics displays within the club, along with some gymnasts being specially selected for competitions both in-house and local.
The Recreational Gymnastics is our 45-minute non-competitive Classes. However, gymnastics are often specially selected to compete in floor and vault competitions.
Gymnasts participate in our proficiency awards scheme, which parents can then purchase badges and certificates after each level has been completed. Recreational proficiency awards start at level 8 and work their way down to level 1. As the levels go down, the harder the skills get, so gymnasts spend time perfecting each skill. Recreational groups also take part in our gymnastics displays within the club.
Although the Recreational Gymnastics classes are mainly floor and vault, gymnasts also get the opportunity to train on additional apparatuses, which for the girls include BEAM & BARS plus TRAMPETTE & TRAMPOLINE. For the boys, additional apparatuses include HIGH BAR, RINGS, PARALLEL BARS, & POMMELS, plus TRAMPETTE & TRAMPOLINE.
