This test is available for all junior gymnasts to see in the gym. The test is done in the gym twice a year.

Senior boys and girls are expected to train 2 to 3 sessions per week with each session 2 to 2.5 hrs. They are also expected to train at home on their strength and flexibility.

Senior girls will train and compete at Artistic level 3 to 9 or in the “plus” grades. They are also expected to train at home on their strength and flexibility.
