Wings Rhythmic Gymnastics Competitive programme is tailored for those who wish to engage in competition and develop the skills to progress in the competitive world of rhythmic gymnastics. The programme requires more commitment and talent than some of our other ones, and only selected members that passed the assessment for admission and show enthusiasm a work ethic while preparing the routines for shows. The goals of the programme are the following: • Optimise the body conditions of the gymnasts. • Teach the gymnasts how to train to reach their personal best in competition mentally and physically. • Develop the technique in the required rhythmic gymnastics elements necessary to compete in the National Series, organised by Gymnastics Ireland. This programme might not be suitable for all participants. Rhythmic Gymnastics can be practised in many different ways tailored to different needs. TERMS & CONDITIONS Preparing for competition requires more than talent. Gymnasts willing to participate in the competitive programme should: -Train more than 6 hours a week. Training sessions may be increased during competition seasons. -Attend 80% of training sessions unless they have a medical reason or extenuating circumstances. -Purchase their own FIG approved apparatuses and competition gear, as these are the only ones accepted in competition. These should be the correct size. -Go to National Competitions organised by Gymnastics Ireland in Dublin or any other competitions where the gymnast is qualified or appointed to compete. -Have a good work ethic and be able to pay attention during training in order to keep up with the technical skills coached. If the attention and motivation of the gymnast decline, they can always access one of our more fun-based, laid-back programmes such as Development or Recreational.
Cancellation are available only 14 days before the term starts in order to keep class lists balanced. If you need to reschedule, please contact secretary@wingsrhythmicgymnastics to discuss your options.
