Development Squad

WAG Development Squad

 

WAG Development training is a stepping stone towards a National Gymnastics stream.

 

WAG consists of: Beam, Bars, Floor, and Vault – Development training focuses on the basic skills, coordination and strength elements for these apparatus.

 

Body shapes, flexibility, dance/posture, spatial awareness, power, balance and concentration are also focus points for WAG Development. Each gymnast will have their strengths and weaknesses and all will progress at different rates. While skills and strength are essential components of training, the girls enjoy games, free play and social interactions with gymnasts their own age as well.

 

Development Squad trains on Saturday’s from 10:00 am -11:30 am and Thursdays 3.45pm - 5.15pm – the gymnasts must wear the compulsory training leotard (can be purchased in the Office).

 

Development training is an invitation only class. Selection in to this training group does not automatically guarantee a place in a National Squad in future.
