Requirements: Coaches/Clubs do not need to bring gymnasts as these will be provided as demonstrators for the day. Coaches are required to bring their own lunch and refreshments as not all venues have this facility on site. Please bring your own equipment for note taking.

Clinic content:

It is hoped that candidates who sign up for this level of clinic will have either worked the Compulsory routines in the past or they may have taken up a place at one of our Introductory Clinics. This is advised as the clinic will look to briefly refresh the memory of certain level 4 elements with the main focus being on the acquisition of the new skills required for the Level 3 routines.

Below is a brief overview of some of the skills that will be covered during the session, more information on routine construction, specific deductions and guidance can be found in the Elite Compulsory Routine Booklet available to download from the BG website: 

  • Vault- Round off straight somersault (Yurchenko progression)
  • Bars- Backward close bar elements, backward giants with ½ turn and backward straight somersault dismounts
  • Beam- Lift to handstand straddled, forward walk over, flick to 2 feet, spin combinations, 3 leap and jump series and round off straight back dismount
  • Floor- Backward somersault tucked, stretched and with ½ twist, handspring tucked front somersault, free walkover forward, horizontal leg spin combination, switch leap variations and full turning jumps
  • Range and conditioning- Handstands, flexibility and specific strength elements needed for future progression along the pathway 

The High Performance Qualified tutor will provide key technical information for each individual element alongside showing suitable and safe progression on how to build the elements. Specific physical preparation ideas will be shown throughout the event to compliment the progressions and in some instances, candidate participation will be available to learn how to handle/support the elements.
