Your Club in the Spotlight – calling all coaches!

Your Club in the Spotlight

We are inviting clubs from our community to be part of a series of photo and video shoots for a range of recreational activity resources that will be used by gymnasts and coaches across the UK.

For this phase we are looking for a group of 16 boys and girls aged between 5-13 years who represent the diverse nature of our sport. We will need the same gymnasts to be available for all dates required.

Scheduled throughout the summer of 2020, the photoshoots will take place in our newly refurbished facility here at Lilleshall National Sports Centre and will be an exciting experience for your club. See what goes on behind the camera as your gymnasts are involved in fun activities whilst we capture the action!

Filming will take place on the below dates:

  • Thursday 9th April
  • Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd May
  • Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th June
  • Monday 10th, Tuesday 11th, & Wednesday 12th August
  • Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd August

You will need to be available for the majority of the above dates, however, please include in your application any dates that you are not available.

The most difficult skills that gymnasts will be required to perform are below.  Please note however that all 16 gymnasts do not need to be able to perform these.

  • Floor skills – Flicks, handsprings, somersaults; aerials; ring leaps; straddle lever to handstand
  • Bars/P-bar - Straddle undershoot with full turn; flyaway (p-bar and bars); upstart, cast to handstand (p-bar and bars)
  • Beam - Backwards and forwards walkovers, somersault dismounts, full spin, split leap 
  • Vault - ½ on ½ off; handspring ½ off
  • Rhythmic - throw hoop/ball; cat leap - forward roll to catch
  • Acro - round-off to cradle; stand on shoulder motion down to splits

Due to the significance and size of the project we may require additional dates. All filming will take place at Lilleshall National Sports Centre. Accommodation and travel costs are not included.

Due to the requirements of the filming we will be looking for clubs who can perform a range of skills across various disciplines, therefore, if you are a Rhythmic, Artistic or an Acro club this could be an opportunity for you and your gymnasts!

If you are a coach or a club manager and would be interested in applying, please fill out the application form on our Your Club in the Spotlight page
