Squad Holiday Timetable
Women's Artistic Gymnastics
Women's Artistic Gymnastics is one of the oldest disciplines within the gymnastics family, with women first competing in the Olympic Games in the 1920s. Artistic gymnastics requires from the performer a combination of grace, strength, flexibility and agility together with the precision to execute complex routines of somersaults, leaps and jumps on four separate apparatus - the Floor, Vault, Asymmetric Bars and Beam. It is one of the most exhilarating sports to perform and the most exciting and breath-taking to watch.
The women's artistic squad at Bulmershe trains under the guidance of Head Coach Jo Chennell. It is a relatively young squad made up of girls between the ages of 5 and 11 years and has already achieved promising results, with many talented youngsters to look out for in the future.
The girls train between two and five times per week, putting in from 5 to 20 hours - a big commitment for both gymnasts and their families. Entry into the squad is by selection only, with girls' performance closely monitored in order to develop their full potential in the sport.
The squad regularly competes at County, Regional and National level competitions and has members in the South Region Squad.
Visits to other gymnastics clubs are encouraged and in recent years the squad has travelled to the USA, Belgium and Wales to name a few, on training camps and exchange trips.
