Artistic Gymastics

AIMS & OBJECTIVES

Artistic Gymnastics as a CCA when started young aims to condition the body to prevent undesirable developments and habits, at the same time, enhances the cognitive aspects as well as the physical/coordination skills of the gymnast. In addition, the sport also develops the gymnast psychologically and socially while interacting and working with other gymnasts.

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

Learning gymnastics is a wonderful opportunity for young athletes to develop teamwork, sportsmanship, fair play and dedication. As gymnastics is difficult to perform, the time taken to learn the sport is longer as compared to other sports. The long time required to attain mastery of the fundamental skills requires patience, dedication, perseverance and planning. Gymnastics helps pupils learn to work hard for targets they have set for themselves. 

PROGRAMME & ACTIVITIES

Artistic Gymnastics is a beautiful and dynamic sport where gymnasts complete short routines on equipment specially designed for the sport. The game is known for its artistry and grace. It requires gymnasts to display exceptional strength, balance and flexibility while doing somersaults, flips and other acrobatic moves.  Gymnasts must possess psychological qualities such as the courage to attempt difficult moves and the discipline to practise a routine many times.

The different apparatus are Vault, Single Bar, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise.

This is a competitive sport CCA. Attendance, Commitment and Performance are demanded from all CCA members.
