Trampoline Gymnastics

 

 

Trampoline gymnastics is an amazing discipline.

 

Advance participants perform spectacular routines made up of impressive somersaults, twists and jumps. Your role is to support and develop these skills for participants to enjoy.

 

You get to work with mixed age groups, and both male and female participants.

 

We have beginners, intermediate and advance group.

 

Not all wish to compete, some of them just jump for the fun of it.

Mens Artistic Gymnastics:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Men's Gymnastics is composed of six apparatus as explained below:

 

Floor

This is an exercise in pure acrobatics, alternating between powerful tumbling series and the composure necessary for balance and strength elements.

The gymnast endeavours to display virtuous rebound height, whilst connecting the elements of their routine with gymnastic artistry.

 

Horizontal Bar

This is a very spectacular apparatus, largely due to the acrobatic releases and re-grasp flight elements.

The routine is based on swinging parts without stops, and includes extended forward and backward giant swings,

combined with near bar elements, changes of direction and grip, as well as the release and re-grasp movements.

The high dismounts from the bar allows the gymnast to show his acrobatic talents and landing prowess.

 

Parallel Bars

A predominately swinging apparatus, that is interspersed with only a few held or strength elements.

Swings are completed above and below the bars and consist of acrobatic flight elements, changes of direction and swing types.

The gymnast's routine ends in a dramatic dismount off the side or the end of the bars.

 

Pommel Horse

Routines on this apparatus are characterised by circular movements of the body with legs together (circles)

and pendulous swings with the legs separated (scissors). Gymnasts also show a spectacular combination of these skills called flairs.

Throughout the routine the gymnast performs smooth combinations of these movements,

turning and travelling along the horse. Utilising all parts of the horse, while maintaining an extended body line and straight legs.

 

Rings

This apparatus is known for it's difficulty of strength and swinging elements.

The free moving quality of the rings makes it difficult to remain stationary during held elements,

where any movement of the rings incurs a penalty.

During his performance, the gymnast should demonstrate control,

strength and balance in the presentation of forward and backward swings and strength holds parts.

The gymnast's dismount allows him to show his aerial abilities.

 

 

Vault

The gymnasts during their twenty-five meter approach to the vault must develop the necessary power to complete

all their aerial skills before landing.

Upon take-off from the board the gymnast explosively propels himself upwards,

dynamically pushing off the table to generate greater height and distance in the second phase of flight.

This enables a higher level of acrobatic skill and extension to be performed prior to a stable landing.

Womens Artistic Gymnastics

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gymnasts compete on Bars, Beam Floor and the Vault (like the Olympics)

 

Description:

Uneven Bars (UB)

Bars are mainly made up of swinging and strength movements. Gymnasts will Release and regrasp between the bars.

Routines are always finished with a dismounts where the gymnast will do an aerial skill in the air before landing on the mats below.

 

Balance Beam (BM)

Beams are only 10cm wide, 5m long and about 1.25m off the ground.

Beam routines usually contain at the higher levels- leaps, jumps, turns, acrobatics and of course balance

. A good beam worker should show extreme confidence.

 

Floor Exercise (FX)

All floor routines done in WAG are performed to music. Gymnasts must use the whole floor which is a 12m by 12m sprung floor.

Routines must include acrobatics, flexibility, dance, tumbling and rhythm/tempo.

 

Vault (VT)

Vault is the apparatus that demonstrates the gymnast’s athletic ability including speed, strength, power and landing ability.

Gymnasts are given a 25m run before hurdling onto a spring board then repulsion off the table top into an aerial skill before completing a perfect landing without taking a step.
