Pre-Team Classes

 

Both recreational and competitive gymnastics programs promote strength, flexibility, endurance, confidence, fitness and fun. While IGG's Achievement Programs (non-competitive) are fitting for anyone, competitive programs usually require an invitation to join after being evaluated by a qualified coach.

What Do Coaches Look For When Inviting Kids To Team?

 

When considering a child for a team program, coaches look for the following traits:

 

  • Physical Strength – Can the child easily perform strength exercises such as pull-ups, leg lifts, sprinting, push-ups, sit-ups, and hollow body holds?
  • Flexibility – Is the child’s body flexible enough to handle some of the requirements of gymnastics? Can his/her flexibility be improved over time?
  • Basic Skills – How are the child’s gymnastics fundamentals? Has the child spent enough time in a class or pre-team program to master the basics? Can the child perform the basics properly? Does the child know proper gymnastics terminology?
  • Motivation – Does the child want to learn and succeed, or is she content right where she is?
  • Coachability – Does the child listen to corrections and try to apply them? Is the child willing to take a few steps back to fix old skills before learning new skills?
  • Mental Toughness – How sensitive is the child? Does he or she respond well to criticism? Would the child be able to perform in front of a judge and receive a performance-based score with no more than a healthy amount of anxiety?
  • Sportsmanship – Would this child fit in with existing team members? Would he or she encourage the other athletes? Would this child accept both success and defeat respectfully and graciously?

 

Pre-Team is the first step to becoming a competitive gymnast. Competitive gymnastics requires the gymnasts to be strong, flexible, have higher level skills and discipline.

A competitive gymnast is also always working on trying to perfect their skills, not just be able to complete them.
