Squads

Squads are by invitation only. Gymnasts are selected from the RGA Development Squads, General classes, Summer Camps and Easter Camps and trialled in the appropriate age groups if they show gymnastic potential.

All squad classes are held in our purpose-built gym in Kew which houses specialist gymnastic equipment.

All development squads are required to perform in the Christmas Display.
