At EVGC we are currently expanding our Womens Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) Squad programme. WAG Squad gymnasts train between 2 and 5 days a week to develop skills in much greater detail aiming for perfection.
Women’s Artistic gymnasts compete on 4 pieces:
Uneven Bars: A low bar at 1.7 m off the floor and a high bar at 2.5 m off the floor with a distance between the bars of 180 cm.
Beam: A 10 cm wide, 5 m long beam that stands 1.25 m off the floor.
Floor: A 12 x 12 m sprung floor where a gymnast competes tumbles, leaps, spins and dance routines to music.
Vault: – A static table with varying heights between 1-1.35 m.
In our current squad we have gymnasts in the 4 to 11 age group competing at Regional and National levels.
In the year a gymnast turns 8 they enter competitions called Grades and Levels. These are spread throughout the year and are the two main annual competitions WAG Squad gymnasts will compete in.
There are multiple grades pathways including regional, national and elite grades with national and elite grades leading to national finals where the best gymnasts compete region against region for the national title.
