Competitive gymnasts usually live and breathe gymnastics! It involves longer training hours, and the participation in meets, some of which might not be in the local area. Training will likely be conducted over 3 or 4 sessions per week, including either a Saturday or Sunday. Participants will need to commit to the training hours and it’s not really possible to drop in and out if the gymnast wants to master the complex skills. Competitive gymnasts compete on all of the apparatus including floor, vault, beam, and uneven bars. In the case of the men (boys), they will learn to work on the floor, vault, rings, pommel horse, parallel bars and high bar.
Children taking up gymnastics for the first time will normally start at the recreational level before being invited to move into the competitive section.
