Squads - by invitation only
All gymnasts are assessed regularly for their suitability to attend squad training.
If gymnasts are invited to join a squad, the progression is usually either through our floor & vault squad who train for 2½ hours a week or through our Lincoln themed Imps, training three times a week for 5½ to 6½ hours, depending on their age through to the Barons or Knights, who train 3 or 4 times per week, for up to 10 hours per week for the Knights. The squads have specifically designed training programmes that include strengthening and conditioning, and they work towards their respective county and regional levels at which they compete.
We recognise that being promoted to a competition squad may cause financial difficulties to those on low or modest incomes. In order to allow gymnasts to fully participate within the sport, we offer financial support that will limit the annual cost to £520 per annum, including the BG insurance and mandatory uniform. Those who want to take advantage of this support may apply to the committee of the club in writing or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and must be able to demonstrate that the full cost of membership would not be affordable to them. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.
