Incentive Awards

The Incentive Awards programme runs through 7 levels in artistic gymnastics. The gymnasts are able to attend a testing day only at the end of term 3 due to the difficulty level, where if they pass their level they will receive their badge.

The Incentive Awards are split into two age groups and an advanced class;
Incentive Awards Juniors = 7 – 9 years
Incentive Awards Seniors = 10 – 16 years 
Incentive Awards Advanced = Gymnasts in level 4+

Men’s Gymnastics – Entry by Assessment Only

The Invercargill Gymnastic Club uses the National Competitive programme for our competitive male gymnasts. Within the programme are 9 levels, with the 10th level being international. Gymnasts through levels 1 – 6 use compulsory routines, and once in level 7+they use optional routines that vary in difficulty.

Entry into these competitive classes are done by assessment only.
Typically a gymnast would have done some basic training within one of our other classes first before moving towards this competitive stream. Classes such as Kiwi GymFun or Boys Only are common entry pathways. We do occasionally have a few exceptions, though they are rare.

The men’s competitive classes are done according to ability, not age, so in some cases we would have 7 year olds training in the same class as 12 year olds.

Recommended ages 6 – 18+ years.
