Assessment Day Bookings

GymSkills Assessment Day

Saturday 22nd June 2019
2.30-4.30pm*

GymSports FNQ’s GymFun and GymSkills programs have been developed to allow our recreational gymnasts within the club to take part in the Australian Levels Program (ALP).  The ALP starting at Level 1, will focus on teaching the technical aspects of skill development, encourage correct posture, build strength & flexibility, while keeping the emphasis on FUN. These programs allow gymnasts to progress through the foundational levels system at their own pace without the commitment of the full competitive program training hours or competition requirements.

GymFun Progressions:
GymFun Bronze         – Beginner entry level shapes and assisted skills
GymFun Silver           – Focus towards developing beginner skills
GymFun Gold             – Level 1 skill development (no routine)

GymSkills Progressions:
GymSkills Bronze      – Compulsory WAG Level 1 routines (ALP)
GymSkills Silver        –  Drills in preparation for WAG Level 2
GymSkills Gold          – Compulsory WAG Level 2 routines (ALP)

Recreational Assessment Days: Sponsored by Fuller Sports
Each Term GymSports FNQ holds a Recreational Assessment Day which are proudly sponsored by Fuller Sports, Edmonton. Assessment Days are a great opportunity for gymnasts to be assessed on the skills they have been learning in class. Although not compulsory*, we strongly recommend gymnasts participate to recognise their progression and be rewarded for their efforts, as well as giving them the chance to ‘show off’ to family and friends.

  • GymFun:   Term 1 and Term 3
  • GymSkills: Term 2 and Term 4

😊  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
😊  Assessment fee includes a record book to keep certificates and program information
😊  Nominations and payment due: CLOSED – Sunday 16th June –  NO LATE ENTRIES ACCEPTED

After the Assessment Day all gymnasts will remain in their current classes and commence working on their next skill set. Successful GymFun Gold gymnasts will transition into GymSkills Bronze the following term.

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR GYMNAST HAS…………………………….

* Eaten lunch BEFORE the event (gymnasts cannot leave the floor to eat during the assessment)
* a full water bottle
* Hair is tidy and away from face (no makeup)
* Girls please wear a leotard, bathers or snug fitting clothing appropriate for gymnastics (no baggy shirts or skirts)
* Boys please wear a snug fitting singlet and sport shorts (school shorts are fine – no boardies!)
* No makeup, watches or jewellery (studs are fine)
 
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.
