Our Developmental program offers a ranges of classes for 6 to 18 year olds who are interested in acquiring advanced gymnastics skills. While these classes still have a strong element of fun this program requires a greater time commitment than the Gym for All program and more focus from the athletes. Our youngest athletes train for just two hours per week, and gradually increase to twice or three times a week. Older athletes train 3 hour, twice a week.
Developmental athletes focus on building a strong base of skills, in a pre-competitive training style, pushing their physical and mental abilities in routines to perform at an interclub or inter-school level. And, with the exception of the High School Program, membership on teams is by invitation or assessment.

They should wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move easily. Shorts and t-shirts are great – just ensure that clothes are not too baggy as it may become a danger or too tight to be restrictive. Long hair should be tied back and socks and shoes removed. Jewelery or other items that might cause scratching or become caught in materials should be removed.
KGTC has leotards and shorts available for purchase in the Athlete Boutique.
