Future Stars - 2023 Routines can be found at the bottom of the page
4th and 5th March 2023
Every year Huntingdon Gymnastics Club puts on a competition to showcase the skills learned during the year by our Recreational and Improver gymnasts.
Competition day will be 4th and 5th March 2023.
You will need to book your gymnast onto the competition - the price includes a commemorative T Shirt, programme and one adult spectator.
Gymnasts will work on the routines required for the competition during their classes. Entry to Future Stars is not compulsory, though we believe that these events are a focal point in the year for us to show how well your children are doing, and for the gymnasts to show off their skills to you. The days will be divided into 4 separate competitions, according to age ranges and level of competition.
The five and under festival is a chance for the little ones to display their skills and be involved in a large competition, but with no pressure on them in regards to winning. All other groups will have not only the taking part certificate but also the chance to compete for 1st/’2nd and 3rd place on each of the gymnastics pieces and medals for the overall winners of each category. Girls this year will compete on Vault, Bars and Floor, Boys will compete on Floor, Vault and Parallel Bars.
Entry this year is £25, this includes a T shirt, programme and entry for one spectator. The club does not profit from the competition, fee for entry goes to cover some of the costs of putting on the event.
Bookings will close on Sunday 29th January 2023.
Numbers are limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Preparing for and competing at the event is brilliant for the development of our gymnasts, as it improves a number of key skills. We appreciate, however that not all of our gymnasts will be able to take part and where possible after the February half term we will seperate the gymnasts who are taking part and not taking part. This will allow those that are competing to focus on their routines and those that are not can take part in the normal classes.

Once entries have been received gymnasts will be split by age and ability. Gymnasts will be competing against children of a similar age. We have three levels of difficulty, to challenge the wide range of ability and experience within our classes.
Gymnasts will compete on 3 pieces of apparatus, the gymnasts will be judged on each piece. Apparatus Certificates will be awarded for each age group and level for positions 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. All three apparatus results will be added up and an All-Around Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Our U5s festival will be run for all children born in 2018, the gymnasts will present their routines to our judges, all participants will receive a rosette recognising their achievements.
Preparing for competitions
Initially all gymnasts will start to learn the routines, regardless if they are intending to take part in the competition or not. As practicing sequences of skills and perfecting skills that are already learnt is an important part of gymnastics. During the sessions the coaches will identify the suitable level of competition for each gymnast. As we move closer to the competition dates, those gymnasts not taking part will return to normal sessions that focus on learning and improving individual skills. Those gymnasts taking part in the competition will fine tune their routines and prepare for the competition.
I am hopeful that a large number of our gymnasts are able to take part in the competition. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to get in contact with either, Chris, Katie or myself,
