Assessment Day Bookings

Saturday 23rd March 2019

GymFun and gymskills 2.30-4.30pm*

Welcome and well done to all of our Bronze Gymnasts participating in the 2019 Recreational Program.

Every Term GymSports FNQ holds an Assessment Day for gymnasts in our GymFun and GymSkills Programs. Assessment Days are a great opportunity for your gymnast to be assessed on the skills they have been learning in class. They are also a great way for our Recreational gymnasts to be recognised and rewarded for their efforts, as well as giving them the chance to ‘show off’ to family and friends.

GymFun and GymSkills classes are broken down into three steps, Bronze, Silver, Gold. On Assessment Day gymnasts will be required to demonstrate competency in a set skills list prior to progressing onto the next Level within their program. Once GymFun Gold has been achieved gymnasts will progress onto GymSkills Silver and then Gold, GymSkills Gold is equivalent to level 2 of the Australian Levels Program (ALP).

Who can do the Assessment?

Term 1 2019 Assessment Day will only be for our GymFun and GymSkills BRONZE gymnasts.
Our GymFun Bronze level is set at a very basic entry level and all gymnasts are encouraged and supported by their coaches to pass this level.
Our GymSkills Bronze level is equivalent to National Level 1, for gymnasts to pass this stage their assessment skills need to be clearly identified and reasonably controlled.

All gymnasts in bronze, silver and gold will all have the opportunity to do their assessment in Term 2, 3 and 4.

After Assessment Day all gymnasts will remain in their current classes and commence working on their next skill set. *

*     All assessed gymnasts will be presented a participation medal and certificate
*     To PASS their level gymnasts need to receive a Red or Blue sticker for each apparatus (vault, bars, beam, floor) with an exception of 1 green sticker
*     Cost for the Assessment is $25pp (to be paid before 17/03/19 to secure your booking)
*     Assessment fee includes a record book to keep certificates and program information
*     Nominations due: Monday 11th March – NO LATE ENTRIES ACCEPTED

*Times subject to change dependent on nominations. Gymnasts MUST not arrive late and remain on the floor for the entire session time. Please ensure gymnasts have eaten prior to the event and have a water bottle

We will have staff to escort gymnasts to the toilet if needed.
 
Although 2 hours seems like a very long time your child will be moving from station to station within their group (similar to class) and there is little time for boredom. We find that the children are very well behaved on the day as they strive to do their best to achieve their certificate and medal.
All gymnasts will be awarded at the end of the event so DON’T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!!
 
And most importantly……………….…

DON’T BE LATE!
Gymnasts will not be permitted to do the assessment if they are late. Assessment nomination fees are non-refundable.
