The Invercargill Gymnastic Club uses the National Competitive programme for our competitive female gymnasts. Within the programme are 10 STEPs, with the 11th being international. Gymnasts through STEPs 1 – 6 use compulsory routines, and once in STEPs 7+ they use optional routines that vary in difficulty.
Women’s Artistic Gymnasts compete on the Vaulting Table, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor Exercise.
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 Artistic Awards are common entry pathways. We do occasionally have a few exceptions, though they are rare.
The women’s competitive classes are done according to ability, not age.
Recommended starting ages 6 – 8 years.
