The Kick Start Challenge has a variety of Challenge Activities, and each gymnast must complete 10 of the available 13 activities successfully to complete the Challenge. For an extra challenge try and complete all 13 activities!
As a gymnast completes an activity successfully, they are required to get it signed off by a parent or coach before they can start the next activity. Challenge Activities can be completed in any order.
A Record Sheet will be supplied once the gymnast has registered for the Kick Start Challenge. The Record Sheet has been designed to be emailed to every participant and then printed out for a hard copy. Once a gymnast completes all their Challenge Activities, the Record Sheet can be submitted to Gymnastics SA via the Submission Form online.
WHICH LEVEL OF ACTIVITIES TO COMPLETE
The Challenge Activities have been divided into 5 Levels. Level 1 being the easiest and Level 5 being the most difficult.
A coach or parent should look at the range of skills required and help their gymnast choose their most suited Level for their skill set. A gymnast can choose one Level and complete all Challenge Activities at that Level. If needed, a coach or parent may allow their gymnast to choose their own suitable level at each activity.
Coaches and parents are reminded that each activity is set up safely for the gymnast. The Kick Start Workbook includes all safe set ups for each activity as well as overall safety guidelines. Please ensure they have plenty of open space around them and any skills requiring jumping and landing have a safe and padded surface.
