Tekne Festival 2016
Our festival was held at South Hampstead High School on March 5th and was a great day!! We are so proud of all our gymanasts who took part! Photos and video highlights will be uploaded shortly!
Due to restructuring in the Spring term, we are able to add more classes for our beginner and intermediate gymnasts at The Village School to enable them the same opportunities to develop as our more experienced gymnasts. This means that on Tuesdays we have added another Bouncers class at 5.15pm and on Saturdays we have added a Tumblies Improvers class and a Bouncers Improvers class. Also, our Twisters classes are now on Mondays at 7.30pm and on Saturdays at 3.30pm and these classes are now for older gymnasts aged 10 years and above. It does mean some reshuffling, but all our gymnasts have been placed in the class best suited for the ability and coaching requirements.
We have classified our classes as follows: Tumblies Beginners, Tumblies Improvers, Springers, Bouncers, Bouncers Improvers, Jumpers, Jumpers Improvers and Twisters, all classes are based more on ability than age, so please contact Susi for more information.
All our gymnasts are assessed at regular intervals and as their abilities develop, they will have the opportunity to move on to the next class.
Tumblies Beginners - Saturdays 09.00am
This is our junior beginners class where we teach through stories, songs and games and is a really fun lesson where we start the structure of training. There are many important first lessons, like turn taking and fun interaction. On the technical side, all the shapes, rolls and movements are directly related to gymnastics moves. It is the most exciting class as results of training come almost immediately.
Tumblies Improvers- Saturdays 09.45am
This is a continuation of the Tumblies beginners class, gymnasts are confident in attempting basic gymnastic moves and are listening well, focusing and executing coaches instructions correctly. Lots of fun interaction still with use of soft play equipment such as the junior beam and trampete.
Bouncers - Mondays 5.30pm, Tuesdays 5.15pm and Saturdays 11.30am
This class also leads with fun games, but the stretches and progressions for moves are much more obvious. Experience with apparatus has a strong part to play. These kind of exercises at this age are crucial in building body awareness, control and thus confidence.
Bouncers Improvers- Saturdays 12.30am
In this class the gymnasts are working with shapes progressions for moves like cartwheels and tick tocks. The children are getting a real grounding for the sport.
Twisters - Mondays 7.30pm, Saturdays 3.30pm
This class is all about consolidating progressions into skills. The classes are much more structured, designed to increase skill, strength, flexibility and stamina ready for more advanced skills, and there are drills to help children find their potential. We strive to have a very good teacher to pupil ratio so each gymnast receives the coaching they need to fulfil their potential.
THE FOLLOWING CLASSES ARE HELD AT SOUTH HAMPSTEAD HIGH SCHOOL
Development and Advanced classes – Tuesdays from 6.30pm - 8.30pm and Saturdays from 9am - 1pm
These classes are invite only. Gymnasts should be able to complete different elements in order to be invited to join these classes which are directed on a more challenging route. New gymnasts would need to be assessed before being invted to join these classes.
