    Competitive Gym

    Club Levels

    The Club Level Program is a competitive program for gymnasts who wish to compete but who cannot dedicate themselves to amount of hours of the Squad level gymnasts.

    This stream of gymnastics starts at Level 1 and goes through to Level 10. Once a child has gained sufficient skills in the Recreation Gym program or if they have been chosen / selected by our top coaches who show natural talent, motivation and determination they can move over to the Club Level Program. This stream offers competitions and displays on training 1 ½ – 6 hours a week.

    Each level has a variety of skills and routines the gymnast must learn on each apparatus. Once a child has mastered the skills in a level, they may compete those skills in routines at the club and state organized competitions.

    This stream of gymnastics allows all children to achieve and have success competing in gymnastics in a fun but still challenging environment.

    Currently the Club levels programs is only available for WAG (Women’s Artistic Gymnastics)

    Program Goals

    • Club Levels Program has been designed for all gymnasts who love gymnastics and wish to go more than once a week but who cannot dedicate themselves to the hours of the squad program and would like to further experience the diverse benefits of gymnastics.
    • Club Levels program is more training hours than the Recreation program but less hours that the Squad program
    • Club Levels program allows all gymnasts to compete for NDGC.
    • The Club Levels program is not as demanding as the Squad Program.

    Development

    Not all gymnasts improve at the same rate, or wish to compete at a competitive level. The NDGC Development Program is a special program for young gymnasts who are not old enough to compete at a squad level however they show good athletic ability, co-ordination, flexibility & strength and show that they have the skills to be a competitive gymnast in the future.

    Gymnasts are selected by our top coaches who show natural talent, motivation and determination to achieve excellence in Gymnastics at a competitive level, and show strengths in the following areas..

    • flexibility
    • co-ordination
    • muscle strength
    • ability to follow instructions
    • determination

    The Gymnasts within the selected program, move through the development levels at their own rate. Each Gymsport has different levels and each level may train from between 1.5 hrs per week to 4.5 hrs per week accordingly.

    From within the Development Program, gymnasts may be then selected to further their abilities by invitation into our National Development Competitive Squads.

    There are several different pathways with NDGC Gymsport structure. We strongly believe whilst each child develops at different times and stages, we also believe that each Gymsport needs to have a fun and enjoyable element to be successful.

    Squads

    Our NDGC Squad program caters for elite level gymnasts with the desire and ability to excel in competitive gymnastics at various events throughout the year. Gymnasts selected will compete in individual and team competitions at Club, Regional, State, National and International events. Our squad program focuses on mastering high level skills, exceptional strength and conditioning and are prepared with the routines to be the best they can be.

    NDGC offers a variety of very competitive squad programs, where gymnasts can train up to 20 hours per week. Gymnasts that are selected to be part of our squad program are chosen by our top coaches who show natural talent, motivation and determination to achieve excellence in gymnastics on a competitive level.

    Commitment for the full year is an expectation in this program. As part of being selected into the Squad program, gymnasts must commit to attending all allocated competitions selected by the club and also attend all the regular training sessions each week.

    We offer the following squad programs:

    WAG Squad Program
    Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) consists of 4 apparatus which are Floor, Bars, Beam and Vault. The NDGC runs a successful competitive WAG Squad Program.

    The programs are developed to fit the individual needs of each student/school and tie in with the requirements of the Australian Curriculum. All of our coaches have nationally recognised accreditations and valid working with children checks.

    On top of general gymnastics we are available to help your school prepare your students to compete in the Interschool Gymnastics Challenge which occurs around August every year.

    What does gymnastics training offer young children?

    Gymnastics is one of the few sports that can offer children the opportunity to tip upside down and develop physical abilities that are important for their overall development. Gymnastics is the basis for all sports and by incorporating gymnastics based training into children’s weekly activities, you will increase their ability to perform physically and mentally. Studies have shown that children who are exposed to gymnastics are physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger and more capable by 30%.

    Additional benefits gymnastics offers:

    • Enhanced self-esteem through learning skills not taught in any other sport
    • Development of spatial awareness
    • Development of safe landing skills (applicable to all sports and life situations)
    • Improved strength, posture and coordination (also applicable to all sport and life situations)
