Men's Artistic Gymnastics
All of our squad classes are by invite only & based upon coach recommendation, not parent request.
Men's Artistic gymnastics requires all round fitness through: strength, mobility, endurance, flexibility, body control and co-ordination. Routines are performed on six pieces of apparatus: floor, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar.
The Men's Artistic squad is coached by Richard & Tim.
Hawth have over 15 boys involved in this discipline. There is someone from the squad in the gym every night of the week and on Saturday morning.
The youngest boys in the group are six years old. Boys for these squads are selected by the Men's Artistic coaching team following an initial trial. The boys will be chosen if they demonstrate natural physical requirements and potential. These younger boys then train twice per week for two hours per session. The gymnasts follow a training programme designed to increase strength, flexibility, speed and stamina which will allow them to develop the required skills at a later stage. Regular attendance is very important for gymnasts in these squads.
Hawth often has entries at many other Men's Artistic events across the country including: London Open, Pegasus Open, English Championships & British Championships. Do make the effort to come and watch us, you will not be disappointed.
