3. SCHEDULE AND CLASSIFICATION OF GROUPS
3.1. Classification of the group.
а) Beginners group 1 — the first year of learning, 4-5 years old. Lesson time 1-2 hours a week.
The main goal is to develop endurance and strengthen the muscles so that the student can withstand physical activity and improve their health. During this stage, the students learn how to do simple acrobatic elements (bridge, wheel, etc.), the basics of choreography, and dance. Our coaches make an emphasis on stretching, flexibility, balance, concentration, and the ability to focus.
In the first year, we learn how to work with a ball, rope, and hoop.
We turn the process into a fun game and try to make our classes engaging and entertaining.
с) Recreational group — 2nd year of study, students from 5 years old. The lesson lasts 2 hours, preferably more than 2 times a week.
The secret of the Russian method: beautiful legs, posture, and strong physique.
During this stage, we focus on ballet and dance elements. This is a very important period since during this age, the base is forming. This will ensure the purity of the fulfillment of the elements.
Children will learn the basics of the apparatus and begin to work with the ball, rope, and hoop and learn the basics of the apparatus. They will know how to hold the apparatus (options for grasping), how to throw, and how to catch.
The third year is the hardest. Children must master the basic elements of ballet, know different types of dance, and perform various variations of acrobatic elements.
In the third year, students will be able to perform not only with free hands but also they will be able to perform with apparatus (rope, ball, hoop). They will learn to master the risks and difficulties of the apparatus.
But parents need to understand that the success of their child comes from individual specialties and abilities. What matters is attendance. If you miss classes and take long breaks then the results will be relevant.
At this time, the student and their parents need to decide whether they will stay in the recreational group or if they are ready to go to the Competitive group.
c) Competitive group — for kids from 6 years old, who’ve been studying for more than 2 years. This group includes students who decided to train professionally. Our coach will decide if the student can move and is ready to join the group.
The students are required to give all the energy they can give, and attend classes at least 4 times a week for 2 hours. Participate in at least 5 competitions per year. Parents should be prepared for additional charges: additional training, fees, the coach, better equipment, leotards, etc.
3.2 Which group should the child join?
Our coaches will help you find the right group for your child.
In the UG club, there are 2 ways of student-level assessment:
The exam takes place at the UG Exam, which happens twice a year. At the end of the year, each student receives a certificate which indicates their current level.
Accurate schedule is posted on our website www.universegymnastics.com
Students must come 10 min earlier before the class starts. All students must bring their uniform and have their hair properly done. They must be prepared for the class, have water and they can not be late!
4. CALENDAR & EVENTS
4.1. UG club holds two exams and two competitions every year. All students are required to participate in these events. We will inform you of the dates in advance.
During the academic year, we recommend our students participate in competitions organized by other clubs, Sports Federations of Thailand, international competitions, schools, and city events.
5. Dress Code
Everyone is required to attend the class in a proper uniform (gymnastics uniform and shoes, with hair in a bun).
What type of uniform is allowed:
The student is not allowed to the class if:
Uniform forms discipline in gymnasts and also develops aesthetic skills.
Wearing a gymnastic uniform will gurantee safety.
Students are allowed to the class only with their hair done
Students are not allowed to the class if:
Hair — is an important element in gymnastics. Properly done hair will help hold the posture and also prevents injuries during training.
In class, the student should be barefoot or wearing special gymnastics shoes.
5.2. Appearance at the competition
5.2.1. Competition leotard
This is a requirement for students who perform with music.
Requirements for a competition leotard:
It is your responsibility to sew or buy a ready leotard (you can ask the coach for help). Before buying, make sure to check the model and quality with the coach.
5.2.2. Hair and make-up for competition
5.2.3 Footwear for competition
At the competition, the gymnast must wear gymnastics shoes. They must be clean and without any holes.
6. GYMNASTICS APPARATUS
6.1 Types of apparatus
6.1.1. What do you need to buy?
For students who are in their 1st year, should immediately purchase a ball. Later, the coach will tell you if you need to get rope and hoop. These 3 items you need to bring with you to each class.
Work with ribbon and clubs is introduced later. The coach will let the parents know one month ahead.
You will need to purchase the ball during the first month of training and bring it with you to every class.
The ball you get should be a certain size, weight, and made of good rubber material. Recommended models: Sasaki, Pastorelli, or Chacott.
To know what size fits you the best, measure your height and hand size.
The ball should comfortably fit in your palm while holding it.
Usually, for students, age 4-7 years old, the perfect measurements for a ball are a diameter of 15 cm and a weight of 300 grams. For students age 8-10 years old, the diameter should be 17 cm and weigh 350 grams. For students who are 10 years old and older, the measurements are a diameter of 18.5 cm and a weight of 400 gr. Therefore, it is important to choose the correct ball size for the gymnast.
However, keep in mind that a gymnast’s height is very important when choosing the right ball. For example, if a girl at 6 years old is taller and looks older than her age, then she will need a medium-sized ball (17cm) instead of a small ball(15 cm). Another example is if a girl is 11 years old but is shorter than her age then it is better to buy a smaller ball so that she would be comfortable working with it.
If you are not sure about the choice of size, consult with the coach.
You will need to purchase the rope during the first year of learning (your coach will let you know when) and you will need it every class.
All ropes for rhythmic gymnastics are different in rigidity, thickness, weight, and length. Recommended models are SASAKI and PASTORELLI.
SASAKI provides ropes made out of polyester that are 2.5 m long. These ropes are suitable for toddlers and beginners in gymnastics who cannot use heavy ropes yet. This model is suitable for gymnasts up to 10 years old. We recommend these rope models because they are well weighted and spin well, they are soft, and during the jumps, they do not hit the legs.
Professional ropes are marked with FIG and they are 3 m long. If a gymnast is used to training with heavy rope, we recommend purchasing a SASAKI rope that is made of nylon or polyester. These ropes are the heaviest in weight, with a diameter of 1 cm, and are made of nylon. Girls who train for more than a year will also be able to train with these ropes. Nylon ropes are very easy to use.
PASTORELLI ropes are made of nylon as well but they are lighter in weight and thinner in diameter.
How to properly measure and cut the rope
Standard ropes are usually 3 m long. It is necessary to cut the rope to your height. For the gymnast to be comfortable training, the rope needs to be the ideal fit for the gymnast’s height. To measure the rope correctly the gymnast needs to stand in the middle of it and pull up the rope over their shoulders.
Tie two knots and make sure the ends reach the armpits or shoulders. After tying the knots, test it to make sure the rope is the right length and is suitable for the gymnast. Afterward, cut the rope above the knots and immediately light the end with fire so that it does not disband.
How to take care of the rope
You can keep the rope in a case so that it does not get dirty and doesn’t tangle in the bag.
Note the following:
* Do not wash the rope.
* Do not put the rope in the machine for drying.
* If the rope is wet from sweat or water, wipe it with a dry cloth.
* Do not leave the rope on a wet surface.
* Clean the sweat after using.
To clean the rope:
* Please wipe the sweat or wet spots with a dry cloth and dry the rope in shade. Keep it in a dry area.
Will need to be purchased during the first year (your coach will let you know when) and will need to be brought with you in every class.
To get the right size it is important to know the age and height. For example, if a girl is 6 years old but is taller than the average height for her age she needs a 65 cm hoop or if a girl is 11 years old but she is not tall for her age then it’s better to take a hoop a size smaller (75cm) for it to be comfrotable to train with. The weight of the hoop changes depending on its size. It is highly recommended to keep the hoop in the case.
The coach will let you know one month before purchasing.
Clubs for rhythmic gymnastics should be a certain size, shape, weight and made of high-quality material: rubber or plastic. The size of the clubs is determined by the height of the gymnast and the length of their arm.
When you put the club along your arm in a wrist holding the small circle below, it should reach the middle of your shoulder so that it is comfortable to hold and perform different elements with them.
Usually, small clubs (36 cm length) are suitable for 5–7 years old, medium clubs (40–41 cm length) are suitable for 8–11 years old, and standard big clubs (44–45 cm length) are suitable for 11 years and older.
To protect the clubs, keep them in a case.
The coach will let you know one month before purchasing.
The ribbon for rhythmic gymnastics includes a stick and the ribbon itself. It is made of viscose or satin and can be 4, 5, and 6 meters in length. For gymnasts up to 8 years old, the length of the ribbon is 4 meters, for 8-14 years old — 5 meters long, and for 15 years old and above — 6 meters long. Before buying the ribbon it is best to consult with a coach.
The stick part for the ribbons is usually conical or cylindrical form. They are made of plastic or plexiglas and are from 50 to 60 cm long. The ribbon with a stick is connected by a carbine or nylon braid. The stick needs to fit the length of the ribbon:
— for 5 and 6 meter long ribbons the stick should be 57 cm, 60 cm;
— for a 4 meters ribbon the stick should be 50 cm.
To carry the ribbon, you will need to order a specific equipment.
