Participants are selected for this programs as a result of their gymnastics ability, and often quick progression through the recreational program. The main difference between recreational program and competitive programs (apart from the increase of training ) is the focus on correct technique, body shape and specialization of specific pieces of apparatus.
Children who are selected for the competitive stream are required to complete talent identification screening and a trial period by the head coach. There are a range of opportunities for children who demonstrate a natural talent for the sport in that there are 2 different streams in gymnastics depending on age, ability and commitment.
