Entry into the squad is by invitation only and demands a high level of commitment. Squad members work towards competing in British Gymnastics National Level Grades competitions as well as voluntary competitions.
We have also recently introduced a new squad at Carterton, called the County Squad. These gymnasts compete in County Open Competitions.
Life in the squad:
"When I was younger I wanted to be a gymnast as I thought it was such a beautiful sport and after becoming a gymnast and squad member, I have found it is more than a sport, it is a lifestyle. I love gymnastics because I love competing and learning new moves. In my time at Carterton, I have left gym due to an injury and returned to the club as a coach because I missed it so much. As a coach I have learnt so much more about gymnastics and the technical side to all the moves. I coach both squad and recreational gymnasts and in doing so have realised that I need gymnastics in my life, and so have now returned to training as well."
