Women's Artistic Competition Program

Description

 

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is a very demanding and challenging sport, requiring high-level strength, power, speed, flexibility, endurance, agility, form, technical precision and artistic performance. Flying Angels Gymnastics Club's Women’s Competitive Program is for the more dedicated athlete and focuses on the development of gymnastics excellence in an environment where athlete safety, health and wellness are our first priority. In their personal pursuit of excellence, each athlete benefits from ongoing personal and physical development that transfers well to their academic life, social development and performance in other athletic programs.

 

Our Women’s Artistic classes are selection only. The classes we have, are for Development Junior and Senior squads that run from Monday to Saturday. Gymnasts are required to come in multiple days per week. All squads are coached by the appropriate level coach. We look at pre-school gymnasts very early on to see if there is potential for the gymnast to go into future Artistic level competition. Entry into and maintenance within these programs are not for everyone and are by trial only.

 

 

Flying Angels Gymnastics Club’s women's program focuses on the four apparatus:

 

  • VAULT requires speed and strength down the runway in order to generate sufficient momentum to produce a high and long post-flight off the vault, essential for completing the various skills. Once in the air, the gymnast then focuses on sticking a perfect landing.

  • UNEVEN BARS requires special timing to combine seeming effortless swinging elements with technically demanding ‘release’ moves, followed by the sticking of a perfect landing. Balance Beam demands great balance, strength and flexibility as the gymnast must perform demanding elements on a 10 cm. wide ‘stage’ that is 1 metre above the floor.

  • BALANCE BEAM demands great balance, strength and flexibility as the gymnast must perform demanding elements on a 10 cm. wide ‘stage’ that is 1 metre above the floor.

  • FLOOR is an excellent example of where sport meets art. Each gymnast strives to merge her own unique personality and emotion into every performance while defying gravity in order to execute technically demanding tumbling elements.

 

The Flying Angels Gymnastics Club Girls Competitive Program features a fantastic team of Women's Artistic coaches. The program structure includes Development, Junior and Senior squads competitive program pathways, with gymnasts placed in specific competitive levels.  Flying Angels Gymnastics Club has competitive program trials throughout each year. Please contact the club for further information.

Foundation Program

Any gymnast aged 5-6 years will start in the foundation program. Gymnasts in the foundation program start with floor and vault competitions so they can start to gain experience in competitions. This also gives us as coaches the opportunity to see how gymnasts can cope under pressure and how they perform in front of an audience.

Development & Junior Programs

 

The Development program is aged 5yrs - 6yrs. Gymnasts in this program compete on floor and vault as preparation for higher-level competition. Gymnasts in the development program also take part in the AP level competition in the Neon competition twice a year, which not only is floor and vault but also has the addition of beam.

 

The Junior program is for the more dedicated budding young gymnasts aged 7yrs -11yrs who take part in the Regional and National Grades, as well as voluntaries. Gymnasts compete in three types of competitions, Individual, Twin Piece, and Team competitions. The training schedule is devoted to women’s artistic gymnastics basics, focused physical preparation and introductory women’s artistic competitions. This program is where skill acquisition and routine building are the main focus. 

 

Senior Program

The Senior program is for the more dedicated budding young gymnasts aged 12 years plus who take part in the Regional and National Grades, as well as voluntaries. Gymnasts compete in three types of competitions, Individual, Twin Piece, and Team competitions. The training schedule is devoted to women’s artistic gymnastics basics, focused physical preparation and introductory women’s artistic competitions. This program is where skill acquisition and routine building are the main focus. 

Specific coordination, strength, and dedication are required. The program focus is on development of flexibility, strength, speed, endurance, basic skills and form, as well as advanced skills and routine development for each of the four Olympic apparatus; Floor, Vault, Uneven bars and Balance Beam.

The skill requirements, training schedule, conditioning program and the total commitment required of the athletes, parents and coaches are very demanding.
