Development Squad Trial

Liberty Gymnastics Club (Frome) Development Squad Trail

For children born in the year 2018 and older

Please be aware that squad places are highly selective with a high demand for trial places. Therefore we suggest that you treat the trial as a “fun session” for your child to come and explore gymnastics with little mention of them being tested or assessed. This will hopefully manage expectations and Coaches will be able to assess the children in as natural a way as possible. Attendance at the sqaud trial does NOT guarantee your child a squad place.

The session is available for all who meet the age criteria regardless of whether they have prior gymnastics experience and we are therefore unable to advise prior to the trial suitability for individual children.

Following the trial your child may be asked to attend additional sessions throughout the summer holidays and in this instance we will notify you and organise another bookable session.

Our Women’s Artistic Squad works at Club, County, Regional and National level and depending on the squad place offered hours can range from 3 up to 18 hours a week and have an extensive training programme. Joining our development squad is a commitment for both gymnasts and parents alike. Click below for details of our squad groups and pathways.

Following the trial, you will be able to access an evaluation to see what was tested and will receive an email letting you know the outcome. If selected, we treat our Diamond, Topaz & Opal Squad groups as an ongoing trial, designed to help us determine the best pathway for the gymnast as they progress.
