The gymnasts train to undertake 4 pieces of equipement Floor, Beam, Bars and Vault. Prizes are awarded in age groups and for indivdual achievement on one piece of equipment.
- To provide sporting activity (gymnastics) for 250 boys and girls in rural Suffolk aged 4-15.
- To provide an environment for the gymnasts to learn and develop the attributes of teamwork, fair play, sportmanship, and an appreciation of the commitment needed for sporting achievement.
- To enable the club members to gain experience of a competition environment before being entered into other county and national events.
How we will achieve our goals
The community award will enable the club to purchase the equipment required to ensure the sucessful completion of the club competition by providing a floor area to the British Gymnastics Association standards and for future use. The floor mats and landing mat will ensure that the gymnasts can compete in a safe environment.
Where the money will go
All 250 gymnasts come from the community around Hadleigh and surrounding villages. The club provides 9.5 hours of sport a week for girls and boys aged 4-15 with the opportunity for older gymnasts to take coaching qualifications. The competition gives the gymnasts the opportunity to share their learning and hard work with family and friends.
