Men Artistic Gymnastics (MAG)
Prime’s Men Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) competitive programme is structured to prepare gymnasts for internal and external high level competitions under the Singaporean and Australian Levels standards. The programme focuses on developing and perfecting skill sets on the six Olympic apparatus (Floor, Pommel, Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars and High Bar). Our gymnasts have successfully represented the club and country at local club, national and international events. Prime's MAG Competitive programme offers gymnasts 2 pathways for progression:
MAG Beginner Competitive (2hours/session, 4 - 6 hours per week)
Gymnasts in the beginner squad are aged between 5-8 years old and train between 1.5-4.5 hours per week. Gymnasts are separated from the co-ed groups in the recreational stream and given gender specific training towards future competitive groups. Gymnasts focus on age appropriate and apparatus specific skills. Gymnasts may be offered a variety of alternative routes to progress from beginner competitive squads - including recreational/competitive or performance opportunities. Gymnasts have the opportunity to participate in our internal competitions.
MAG Prep Squad (3hours/session, mandatory 9 hours per week)
The preparation squad is for boys aged 9 -11 years old who have demonstrated above average development in their physical abilities and skills at a young age. Within the preparation squad they will have the opportunity to further develop on this and coaches will evaluate their progress to determine the most appropriate competitive level/ route for them.
From the preparation squad, boys will subsequently move to MAG Advance.
MAG Advanced Competitive (3hours/session, 6 - 12 hours per week)
The advanced squad is designed to support gymnasts aged between 9 - 14 years old who aspire to progress further in gymnastics. Gymnasts in the advanced group can continue to progress through their levels with an appropriate intensity. Gymnasts will have the opportunity to participate in our internal competitions and potentially suitable events outside of the club.
MAG Junior Elite (4hours/session, 16 - 20 hours per week)
The Junior Elite squad is for boys aged 11 - 17 years old who have good basic skills and physical fitness. They need to train about 16 hours per week and be able to compete at Singapore Level 4 & above.
MAG Senior Elite (4hours/session, 20 - 24 hours per week)
The Senior Elite squad is for boys 18 years old and above. They need to train about 20 hours per week and be able to compete at least Singapore level 5 to FIG Junior/Senior level. It will offer more time for apparatus specific skills to produce a level of gymnastics where the gymnasts may reach a high enough standard to represent both Prime and Singapore at international level.
