About Our Squads.

A gymnast or trampolinist that shows talent, potential and enthusiasm for progressing skills, might be invited to trial for one of our competitive squads. This can be from either, during the general classes or our own internal competition. This entails a commitment from the gymnast to train for more hours than standard classes, as well as for competitions. They will learn teamwork, resilience, and the importance of enjoying the process learning. 

We have Pre-Squads for both Gymnastics and Trampolining that are there to prepare the younger members for what’s ahead. These enable us to ensure progression of their skills, for when they are ready to move into the main squad. We do have a number of members who are in squads across multiple disciplines.

Competitive squads take part in a number of various competitions outside of the Twizzlers own internal event. In gymnastics this ranges from local competitions against other clubs to regional level events. Our trampolinists start their own competitive journey at the Aspire level, held alongside the regional qualifier. For both regional level events gymnasts and trampolinists are competing for a place to represent London. Trampolinists aim compete for London in the Inter-Regional Challenge Cup Finals normally held at the Utilita Arena in Birmingham and gymnasts at (Where do Zinc go) Building up experience in competition is important across all squads as the format and experience at each is always very different. 

Other competitions our squads take part in are the Trampoline & DMT League. This takes place in 3 venues across the country, one of which is normally Cardiff.  We also enter the English Trampoline & DMT Qualifier being held in Telford. Both events see our competitors competing against people from all over the country, making new friends along the way.
