Please contact us for details of our next TeamGym trials.
TeamGym is a team competition for men and women, which includes routines being performed on three pieces of apparatus: floor, trampette and a tumbling track.
As a natural extension of artistic gymnastics, TeamGym competitions provide a great opportunity for those gymnasts not wishing to take part in all six (men’s artistic) or four (women’s artistic) gymnastics, to work as part of a team.
TeamGym competitions may consist of three categories: women, men and mixed teams. In each of the three categories a team may consist of between 6 to 12 gymnasts.
TeamGym routines require effective teamwork, excellent technique and spectacular acrobatic elements. Training and competitions generate an excellent team spirit amongst gymnasts with routines providing great entertainment and spectacle for participants and spectators.
TeamGym competition has its roots in Scandinavia where it has been a major event for more than 20 years. The Euroteam competition, a recent addition to the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG) calendar, was first held in Finland in 1996 and now takes place in even-numbered years.
Gymnasts taking part in TeamGym competitions will perform routines (programmes) on the following pieces of apparatus.
Our enthusiastic team includes Sam Smith and Chris Anderson, who are supported by senior coaches. The majority of our coaches are volunteers, who hold down jobs outside the world of gymnastics. We enjoy the support of trainee coaches, and parents are welcome and actively encouraged to come along and help. Please contact us if you’re interested in volunteering.

TeamGym is a team competition for clubs and consists of three sections: women, men and mixed teams. In each of the three disciplines the number of gymnasts is between 6 and 12
We have levels for all children, each child can feel part of a team and achieve gymnastic skills within there own range of ability. This is a social sport where great friendships are made and high skill levels are met.
Mini age 7-11
Junior – 13-17
The Floor Programme is a unity that consists mainly of gymnastic elements. The choice of elements must suit the level and maturity of the team as well as the music. A congruent and good technical performance, properly linked movements, certainty of execution and synchronization as well as expressive presentation is pursued. The Floor routine allows the choreographer a little poetic licence to explore his or her hidden talents. This section of the competition is very popular as medal positions are often determined by the exactness of this discipline. All team members participate in the Floor Programme.
Teams perform tumbling series on a long tumbling lane with good “streaming” i.e. consecutively and close to each other. The complete programme is performed to music. Each team performs three different rounds. Each series must consist of at least three different acrobatic elements, without intermediate steps. Only six members from the team can be chosen for each of the ’rounds’. This section can be very exciting when the gymnasts perform their tumbles close together. Often the excitement is increased by the choice of music.
Teams perform saltos on Trampette with good streaming. At least one run in the Trampette program is done using a vaulting apparatus. The complete programme is performed to music. Each team performs three different rounds. Only six members from the team can be chosen for each of the ’rounds’. Again this section can be very exciting, and often helped by the choice of music
