Gymnastics: an Overview

British Gymnastics provide a learning platform for Gymnastics through their Proficiency and Advanced Proficiency Awards programme. These concentrate on the fundamentals of shape and movement that are essential for the sport and for the health, safety and fitness of each participant. The Proficiency Awards start at Badge 8 and progress through to Badge 1 with each successful evaluation being rewarded with a personalised certificate and a cloth badge. At Badge 1 the option to qualify for the ‘Proficiency Award Medal’ is available. After the basic awards come the Advanced Awards that cover the various disciplines of gymnastics, namely Apparatus, Hand Apparatus, Sports Aerobics, Pairs Work and Fitness for Sport.  Once gymnasts have completed the Advanced Awards they become eligible to participate in General Gymnastics competitions in both Bedfordshire and the Eastern Region. Luton Gymnastics Club coaches are qualified to prepare, enter and accompany Gymnasts into the competition arena.
