COMPETITIVE AND PRE-COMPETITIVE
Panthers offers quality programs for both Competitive and Pre-Competitive gymnasts.
Entrance to these programs is by invitation or try-out only.
The Pre-competitive program, Junior Panthers, is for girls between the ages of
5 and 8. The primary goal of this program is to introduce the young gymnast to the
specific preparation necessary for competitive gymnastics.
Emphasis is placed on the development of the physical, technical and psychological
aspects of training and competing.
Continued assessment of these factors is done primarily by testing and by participating
in "Skill Competitions" organized by the club.
Panthers offers classes
for all competitive levels from "Regional Beginner" up to and including "High
Performance". A high level of commitment on the part of both the athlete and
the parents is expected at this level.
There are other costs related to these programs such as competition registration fee , etc.
