Less than 5% of recreational gymnasts' possess the attributes necessary for competitive gymnastics. Entry into the competitive program is by selection from our intermediate program or transfer from another club's competitive program. In all cases, formal evaluations of athlete potential and skill will be done by the Salto's Head Coach.
Coaches are trained to identify gymnasts who show promise both physically and emotionally. An athlete's progress will determine whether they are suitable for competitive gymnastics. Competitive gymnastics involves training a commitment of many hours weekly, on two or more days per week.
Training fees, competitive suits, meet fees and travel costs can be very expensive. Parents should fully understand this time and financial commitment prior to their child undertaking entry into the competitive program.
As a significant amount of training time and dedication is required to produce a competitive athlete, it is important that members understand the guidelines for the competitive program. Many elements are involved in success, including: discipline, a strong work ethic, respect, talent, attitude, commitment and parent support.
