Payment of Trial Fees
Can all coaches please ensure that their Gymnasts’ fees are collected and ready to be paid promptly in order that the sessions can get underway on time.

Squad Trials Assessment
In order to facilitate the Squad Trial gymnasts will be split into four groups and rotated around four pairs of trampolines as shown in the diagram right
Whilst observations might be made at all times the focus of assessment & specific tests will be whilst gymnasts are working on Bay 4.
Each group of gymnasts will spend equal amounts of time in each bay and so will experience a range of equipment with 4×4 beds of varying age, a 5×4 and a 6×4.
You will be expected to make full use of all equipment available.
The rotations will be as follows:
