GYMNASTS at NHGC will be able to earn British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards throughout March.

The tests will take place during the weekly Monday and Saturday sessions and are for all club gymnasts, from pre-schoolers to those in their early teens.

All gymnasts are automatically enrolled for the tests, which will take place at the Noak Hill Sports Complex, Noak Hill Road, Romford (RM3 7YA).

Coaches will work with gymnasts to help them complete a required number of skills within a scheme which goes through from Levels 8-1, and then onto the more advanced bronze, silver and gold levels.

Those who do not complete all the required skills this month will get the chance to finish their level during the next period of testing, which takes place quarterly at the club throughout the year.

Parents will get letters if their children pass and will be able to purchase badges and certificates at a nominal fee which covers the cost of them being ordered from British Gymnastics.
