Varies per level
At Harbour City GymSports we have been training competitive gymnasts since our beginning. We currently have a women’s squad of approximately 40 gymnasts, between the ages of 7 and 17. Gymnast train between 5 and 14 hours per week, depending on their age and current level.
During the competition season (March - September), we regularly achieve outstanding results at regional and national competitions.
Competitive gymnasts are selected via invitation only. We are constantly monitoring our gymnasts within the gym and following their progression. Gymnasts are placed into development squads and train until they are ready to compete.

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is performed on the following 4 apparatus:

Continuous swings in both directions, above, below and between bars with multiple re-grasp elements, precede an acrobatic dismount.
Series of leaps, jumps and turns demonstrate elegance, flexibility, balance and control, before a tumbling combination to dismount.
Choreographed to music, this acrobatic routine displays tumbling, strength and balance movements connected with gymnastic artistry.
