British Gymnastics Awards
Gymnasticals gymnasts have a chance to work towards the Core & Advanced Proficiency Gymnastics Award Schemes. These schemes were developed by the British Gymnastics Association and are being used in schools and clubs throughout the UK as an official testing system in a child’s progress in gymnastics.
Core Proficiency Awards
This scheme assists in the progressive development of core skills essential in the development of your child’s gymnastics such as balance, strength, flexibility and co-ordination. They are suitable for children aged 5-11 years old and a brilliant way to motive children to progress to higher levels. There are 8 levels to complete and gymnasts must pass 8 out of 10 skills at each level to gain their badge and certificate.
Advanced Proficiency Awards
These badges are for children that have completed Core Proficiency scheme. It continues the development of Core Fitness (Strength, Power, Flexibility and Coordination) as well as allowing gymnasts to progress to more specific advanced gymnastics skills. Gymnasts progress through Bronze, Silver and Gold levels and must complete 6 out of the 8 possible skills at each level to gain their badge and certificate.
Just before the end of term gymnasts will be tested and receive an official badge and award certificate for their achievements at their given level.
