National, Development and Regional Squads
Girls for these squads are selected by experienced Coaches.
The girls are chosen because they demonstrate natural physical requirements and potential.
Once in this squad the gymnasts follow a training programme designed to improve flexibility, strength and coordination which will allow them to develop their skills to compete at Local, Regional and National competitions.
Regular attendance is very important for gymnasts in these squads.
