GENERAL INFO: Your child’s selection and placement on our team is based on your child’s potential to learn gymnastics at a faster pace than the majority of peer participants. Faster learning is predicated by strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and psychological readiness. The ability to master gymnastics skills is, in part, determined by height, weight and overall physical proportions. Our coaching staff determines the placement of athletes with our team and developmental programs based on the following criteria: 1.skill level, 2. success at current level, 3. individual desire, 4. coachability, 5. competitive experience, 6. age, 7. attendance, 8. mental attitude, 9. potential success at higher levels, 10. parental support Placement on Brown’s Gym teams are by invitation only. There are two ways in which a child can receive an invitation to join our team.
- They can come to our program from another team program. In this case the gymnast is invited to train with our team at their current level for up to a week during which time they are evaluated as to skill level, aptitude and attitude.
- Children within our recreational class program are “discovered” because of superior interest or skill level.
The specific mission of Brown’s Gym is to develop happy, healthy and confident children. One way in which we can meet this demanding goal is to place the gymnasts at the level where they can be happy, safe, and confident. What this means is that the gymnast must be able to perform the skills and routines required at a given level comfortably. The skills should not be at the edge of or beyond her ability level. We can never ask or expect our athletes to perform skills or routines in a competition which they cannot perform consistently in practice. Any gymnast interested in joining the Brown’s Gym Team Program must go through tryouts or evaluation. The tryouts are important because they insure that we can place the children within our program where they will be the most happy and successful. Please contact the head team coach at Brown’s in Altamonte for more information about the team program and requirements.
