Women Artistic Gymnastics (WAG)
Prime’s Women Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) competitive programme is based on the WAG Singapore National Levels Programme (SLP). The programme focuses on developing and perfecting skill sets on the four Olympic apparatus (Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor) and is structured to allow gymnasts to develop at a rate commensurate with their ability, need and commitment. Entry is via our WAG coaches’ identification, assessment and invitation process. Gymnasts are then placed in the appropriate programme to develop to their full potential. Our gymnasts participate in internal competitions and have represented the club and country at local club, national and international events. While Prime uses the SLP standard, our gymnasts are versatile and can compete in Australian ALP levels.
Novice Competitive (4hours/session, 8 hours per week)
Previously Intermediate and Advanced Competitive groups. Gymnasts in the Novice classes train to acquire and become competent in skill sets specified by the SLP Levels 3-6. The training is designed to support gymnasts who aspire to progress in gymnastics but at a less intense level. Gymnasts have the opportunity to participate in selected internal and external competitions.
WAG Prep Squad (1.5 hours per week)
Gymnasts are identified are invited from the recreational classes and given specific training towards future competitive groups. Gymnasts focus on age appropriate and apparatus specific skills. Open to gymnasts aged 4 years old only.
WAG Level 1 (2hours/session, 4 hours per week)
The Foundation Programme forms the basis of the WAG Singapore National Levels Programme and is a skill based programme that allows for every WAG gymnast to commence at the same starting point. The programme is a developmental, not competitive programme to prepare the gymnast for the upcoming levels.
WAG Level 2 (2hours/session, 6 hours per week)
Gymnasts at these level train to acquire and become competent in skill sets specified by the SLP Levels 2. For competition, gymnasts from Level 2 perform compulsory routines.
WAG Junior Espoirs - Level 3 & 4 (4hours/session, 12 hours per week)
Gymnasts at these levels train to acquire and become competent in skill sets specified by the SLP Levels 3-4. For competition, gymnasts from Levels 3-4 perform compulsory routines.
WAG Espoirs Levels 5 - 6 (4hours/session, 16 hours per week)
Gymnasts at these levels train to acquire and become competent in skill sets specified by the SLP Levels 5-6. For competition, gymnasts from Level 5 perform compulsory routines. Optional routine choreography is introduced in Level 6 with compulsory elements.
WAG Elite Junior/Senior Levels 7 - 10 (20 - 24 hours per week)
Gymnasts at these levels train to acquire and become competent in skill sets specified by the SLP Levels 7-10. For competition, a mix of compulsory and optional elements with no bonus is required at Levels 7 and 8. For Level 9, the same mix applies but with limited bonus. At Level 10, optional skills in optional routines are performed with set composition requirements with unlimited bonus.
At these levels, our gymnasts have the opportunity to move on from fundamental gymnastics skills to skills with a high degree of difficulty. They are able to develop in the direction most suitable for them as individuals. The training offers 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. Selected gymnasts must be highly committed.
Sessions are 4hours/session, between 4 to 5 sessions per week.
