Rhythmic Gymnastics

Aims and objectives

Rhythmic Gymnastics as a CCA aims to develop good body control, flexibility and coordination as well as enhances the cognitive aspects of the gymnast. As a gymnast grows, she will continue to develop, extend and refine agility, balance, coordination and flexibility which are required for higher level skills. Progressively, she will learn and develop the fundamental and higher level gymnastics skills needed for competition. Also, she will be required to handle hand apparatus, which ensures progressive participation in competitive gymnastics. 

Gymnastics is a sport of learning a skill and then practising it to perfection. With intentional and dedicated practice of the sport, the values of self-discipline and perseverance are developed. 

Programmes/Activities

1. Selection and trial training module at Primary One 

How Do I Qualify for the CCA Programme? 

  1. Pupils with potential from Primary One will be identified during Physical Education lessons while pupils from other levels (P2-P4) have to attend a selection test by invitation only.
  2.  Upon selection, the pupil has to attend a 2 phase trial training, which is meant to be the next level of selection with higher level of gymnastics training components included.
  3.  Upon confirmation, the pupil will officially join the gymnastics team as a CCA and has to be committed to the sports.
Note: Short-listed pupils will receive consent forms issued by the school.

Benefits
