The Yard’s Junior Squads Program takes young aspiring gymnasts from entry level development at level 3 ALP or equivalent through to level 6. The Junior Squads program is split into 4 training categories supporting athletes at the very start of their competititive training journey through to gymnasts on track for a future in High Performance Squads. All junior squad programs are based on a commitment of 3 training days per week. As gymnasts prograss to higher skill sets the duration of those 3 training sessions increase accordingly reaching 12 hours weekly when athletes are moving towards competing at level 5 and 6. Programming is strongly centred on building a strong foundation if physical preparation, fitness, confidence, gymnastics shapes required for the performance of the fundamental skill-sets of levels 3-6. During these levels it is essential to set the foundation to ensure that no athlete experiences barriers for further progression to higher level skill acquisition and performance.
