Gymnasts to “bounce back” with the summer GymSTART SkillsFest Challenge
18th June 2021, 09:46am | GymSTART
The GymSTART SkillsFest Challenge, the new Gymnastics Ireland initiative, launches this June 2021 to support our member clubs and recreational gymnasts to “bounce back” into summer training.
There are 4 challenges, with 10 skills in each. Gymnasts can choose from the many skills available or nominate their own skills, which can be from any discipline, using any equipment. Gymnasts then must successfully achieve 7 skills in their chosen challenge to receive a certificate and progress onto their next challenge. All their newly acquired skills can also be made into a routine, performed on their own, as well as adding music to create a mini display! *Please observe current Covid Guidelines with gymnasts maintaining 2m social distance.
The skills have been chosen from the GymSTART Awards and have been combined to make 4 new progressive challenges.
We encourage all our clubs to use these challenges to create their own club festival of gymnastics for the summer!
We would love clubs to share photos, videos etc. of all the great work and progress the gymnasts make over the summer. Gymnastics Ireland will do a regular Challenge update throughout the summer on our SM platforms highlighting all the work going on in the clubs.
