At EVGC we are currently expanding our Women's Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) Squad programme. WAG Squad gymnasts train between 2 and 5 days a week to develop their skills in much greater detail, aiming for perfection.
Women’s Artistic gymnasts compete on four pieces:
Uneven Bars: A low bar at 1.7m off the floor and a high bar at 2.5m off the floor with a distance between the bars of 180cm.
Beam: A 10cm wide, 5m long beam that stands 1.25m off the floor.
Floor: A 12m x 12m sprung floor where a gymnast performs impressive tumbles, leaps, spins and dance routines to music.
Vault: – A static table with varying heights between 1m - 1.35m.
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.
