WHAT IS SKILL-BASED GYMNASTICS AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT THAN TRADITIONAL INSTRUCTION?
Here at HGA, we require students to perfect the required skills at their particular level before progressing to the next level. Therefore, our progression timetable is determined by the student’s ability to master the required skills, rather than their age. Each student starts at Level 1, regardless of age or perceived skill level. Once the student is assessed, it is up to our coaches to advance them to the next level or keep them at their current level. This type of instruction and progression process ensures each student is advancing at a speed appropriate for their skill level, while ensuring the safety of each student. Through skill-based progressions, students will see improved self-confidence as they set new goals and achieve them
