From Super Tots to Competition Squad

Super Tots' can start at 5 years of age and they learn the basic gymnastic moves: cartwheels, headstands, handstands etc. They are beginning to learn how to use their body in a way of balance and co-ordination.

After 'Super Tots' gymnasts move to Tuesday or Thursday General Classes. These classes are a slightly more advanced level of gymnastics where the gymnast becomes ever more aware of the endless abilities available to them in this sport. Pre-Comp'
A lot of time and effort is spent on coaching this squad to bring them up to competition standard as these gymnasts are the future Rotherham Sports Acro Competition Squad. More emphasis is put on the finer points of gymnastics in the way the gymnast points their toes and keep their legs straight and their body tight. In Sports Acrobatics you are unable to compete until you are 8 years old in the year of competition. Often the 'Pre-Comp' consists of youngsters much younger than 8 years of age as this enables them to get used to different skills and have confidence in their ability for when they are old enough to compete.

Competition Squad - This squad is one which we are very proud of as they go from strength to strength each year. This squad performs some complex moves and compete probably 4 - 5 times a year. The majority of the year the gymnasts are training for competitions and are required to compete at high standards which they usually do. The 'Competition Squad' train and do conditioning 3 - 5 times a week.

At Competition level the Gymnasts wear a Club leotard and tracksuit. The Gymnasts usually start competing at Regional Novice and progress through levels 1, 2, 3, and 4. They then continue through to junior and senior international. We hope that every member of the 'Competition Squad' has the ambition to compete at this level. Gymnasts from the 'Competition Squad' have won medals at Club, Regional, County and National Level.
