Team Gym

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.

MondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFridaySaturday
17:00 – 18:30  16:30 – 17:30 14:30 – 16:00

New to our programme but will be introduced in 2020.

TeamGym – group gymnastics at its best.

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:

  • Floor – Teams perform an optional floor routine within a 14 x 20 metre non-sprung floor area. The routine is accompanied by instrumental music and emphasises strong and smooth teamwork and expressive presentation.
    A typical floor routine will consist predominantly of gymnastic elements and meticulous choreography. The choice of elements must suit the level and maturity of the team as well as the music. The aim is good technical performance, fluent and linked movements, and certainty of synchronisation as well as expressive presentation.
  • Trampette – Teams perform a series of somersaults and twists from a trampette, with good streaming (consecutively and close to each other). Part of the trampette series is performed using a vaulting table.
    Again the complete series is performed to music, with each team performing three different rounds. The streaming and complexity of the elements produces some very exciting performances.
  • Tumbling Track – Teams perform a tumbling series on a tumbling track with good streaming. This produces a very dynamic and entertaining performance.
    The series is performed to music. Each team performs three different rounds and each tumbling series must consist of at least three different acrobatic elements, without intermediate steps.
    TeamGym is the perfect way to extend or support the participation of other gymnastics disciplines. It provides a great way to keep in shape and maintain skills and fitness with friends

Men's Artistic

What is Men’s Artistic

Men’s artistic is a disciplined Olympic sport where you will have to master six different pieces of apparatus, each of them different to the other. To do this you will require a combination of strength, endurance, body control, flexibility and co-ordination.

Rebound Class

Wednesday
 16:00 – 18:30

Children with additional needs dedicated rebound coach Eileen who has been working with children and young adults with disabilities for years.

Your child may benefit from rebound therapy if they have poor balance, limited active movement and altered muscle tone. Rebound therapy improves both high and low muscle tone as well as cardiovascular fitness. It is appropriate for children who have a lack of awareness of body position, reduced sensation and problems with posture. It does not matter if your child has a limited ability to communicate as rebound therapy is an enjoyable, stimulating activity that improves self-esteem and confidence. 

 At Allegro our specialist coaches have undergone intensive rebound therapy training and have valuable experience working with children of all ages in order to provide an excellent standard of safe and effective evidence based exercise therapy.

Sessions are every 20 minutes and pre booking is essential. There is no need for BG Insurance for this session as our coaches have their own insurance. Block bookings of 6 weeks is recommended £25.

Disability Gymnastics involves the coach adapting gymnastics skills to ensure that disabled people can fully access gymnastics and are enabled to take part at the level of their choice.

MondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFridaySaturday
  13:30 – 15:00 (Disability Adult Class)  11:00 – 11:45

Wednesday afternoon sessions at Allegro for people with disabilities 1.30 to 3pm in a fun safe environment which has just been extended. It is a session to suit all abilities including gymnastics moves, dancing, equipment training and trampolining. It has a sprung floor and matting to make it extra safe, friendly and qualified coaches to offer support and help. This session is all year round not just term time!!

We have our Saturday morning class which is mainly focused for children  and our Rebound session in on a Wednesday evening. We have created an environment to make gymnastics inclusive for everyone no matter the ability.

Over the last 3 years our programme for additional needs has grown and the progress for our gymnasts has been over whelming. As coaches we love gymnastics but, I don’t think we can truly put into words the achievements that are made in this group. With a positive attitude and encouragement our gymnast can achieve anything they want to.
