Development Gymnastics

Development Gymnastics – 5 to 8 years old

The Development Gymnastics program offers gymnasts the opportunity to excel in the sport of gymnastics. Gymnasts in this program quickly progress through the basic skills of gymnastics before moving into the competitive program. There is a strong emphasis on strength, flexibility and correct technique to assist in the progression into a competitive gymnastics program.

The Program is generally 2 years in duration, with gymnasts beginning in Development Bronze moving their way to Silver and then Gold.

Development Bronze and Silver is designed for girls and boys aged 5 years old and onwards. It involves 2 x 1 hour sessions per week.

Development Gold involves 2 x 2 hour sessions per week and is recommended for girls only. There is a strong focus on the Women’s apparatus including Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam and Floor.

At Pulse we strive for gymnasts to foster a desire to continue into the competitive program and to have the ability to reach their full potential.

Entry into the Development squad is by selection only. Assessments are done by the head coaches.
