Women's Artistic Gymnastics
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.
