CLUB PATHWAY (Boys and Girls)
Our Club Pathway is aimed at our recreational members aimed 8 years plus, wishing to take their gymnastics a step further by competing in General Gymnastic competitions and progressing on to low level competitions. Whilst trying to maintain the fun aspect of recreational gymnastics training is of course more challenging compared to our recreational classes and include conditioning and flexibility training. We have 3 squads within this pathway.  

FOUNDATION PATHWAY (Boys and Girls)
Our Foundation Pathway is the first step into the Club and/or Elite Pathway. These squads are for gymnasts from 3 and a half to 7 years old that show potential. Whilst trying to maintain the fun aspect of gymnastics, the coaches of our 3 Foundation squads prepare the gymnasts physically by concentrating on improving co-ordination, stamina, flexibility and conditioning.

COUNTY/REGIONAL PATHWAY (Girls Only)
Our County/Regional Pathway is for gymnasts aged 7 years plus that have worked their way up through the Foundation Pathway, or for members in our Club Pathway (A Squad) that have show potential and willingness to increase their training hours and compete at a higher level.

NATIONAL PATHWAY (Girls Only)
Our National Pathway is for gymnasts aged 6 years plus that have worked their way through the Foundation Pathway, or for members of the County/Regional Pathway that have shown potential and willingness to increase their training hours and compete at a higher level.
