Entry information has been emailed to you regarding our exciting event this term, our Awards Day which we're combining with our Profile Testing Day! If you would like to attend this event, please click "accept" on the event email that has been sent to you. For more information on the day, please keep reading!
All gymnasts in our GymFun 5-7-year-old programme have been working on skills and activities from the Kiwi GymFun, a Gymnastics NZ programme. Kiwi GymFun is all about fun, fitness, friendship and fundamentals. Each level of the programme progresses gymnasts through a range of gymnastics skills – there is a badge and certificate for each level.
On HCG awards day, gymnasts will do a warm-up then progress through four circuits just like they do in their regular class. Each circuit will contain skills and activities that contribute towards their Kiwi GymFun badge. At the end of the session each child will be awarded the badge and certificate corresponding to the level of skills and activities they successfully completed.
All gymnasts in our GymFun 8+ year-old programme and all GymAdvance and GymPlus classes, Recreation Trampolining and Tumbling have been working on skills and activities from the Gymnastics NZ Incentive Awards programme.
On awards day, gymnasts will do a warm-up then progress through all of the skills and activities for the awards level they have been learning. Judges from our gym will assess the skills and activities and give them a score. Scores are then submitted to Gymnastics NZ and certificates and badges sent to the club. These would usually arrive in term 4.
If your child would like to participate, the awards day fee is $25 which includes the certificate and badge.
On this date we will also hold profile testing. Profile testing is for gymnasts who are interested in being in our National Competitive Programme for either artistic gymnastics or aerobic gymnastics or for HCG Squad – information on these programmes is in our term 3 newsletter.
If you are interested in this for your child, please write “profile testing” in the message box that is at the bottom of the page that pops up when you select accept in the email you have been sent. If you select profile testing, on the Incentive Awards day, your child will complete extra skills and activities to see where they are at ability wise and whether they are ready for any of these competitive programmes.
If you have any questions about Incentive Awards or Profile Testing, please contact rachelH@hamcitygymsports.co.nz.
Registration closes on Sunday 15th September. A timetable for the day will be sent once registration closes.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE!
