TeamGym is a relatively new discipline within gymnastics that has it's origins in Scandinavia. It is a highly exciting form of gymnastics involving a group of gymnasts working together on floor, tumbling, trampette and vault skills. At it's highest level TeamGym is incredibly dynamic and a great spectator sport, why not check out some videos from the 2014 European Championships on YouTube.
Hawth took up TeamGym as one of its primary competitive disciplines in 2006 after moving away from Women's Artistic. Girl's TeamGym squads were started up by the club's Head Coach Sally-Anne Warner and are now headed up by Kim Jones with help from Emma Duke, Amy Hewitt & Karen Saunders. A boy's TeamGym squad was started by Amber Simpson-Warner and Faye Barker in 2009 and they continue to run these classes today, assisted by Warren Jones & Tom Verco. We have over 100 gymnasts involved in TeamGym at various levels including "Gymnastics for All" recreational gymnasts, development squads, and National level gymnasts who regularly compete at competitions around the country - you can watch videos from their competitions here
Hawth regularly enjoys competition success with it's top TeamGym squads. We compete at County, Regional, and Zonal events and have had at least one team qualify for the British Championships every year since 2009 with a boy's team taking the titles in 2012, 2013 & 2015 and girls finishing in the medals in 2010, 2013,2014 & 2015.
Children from the top TeamGym squads will be put forward for the Southern Zonal Squad where gymnasts are selected for a GB team to compete at the European Championships, in the current (2015 - 2016) season Hawth have 3 gymnasts who are involved in this process.
Since 2014 Hawth have been taking their highest level teams to various European destinations to compete in the International Cup for Clubs.
