How many hours do gymnasts train?

How many hours do gymnasts train?

Depending on their squad and level, Icon’s competitive gymnasts train anywhere from 2 – 15.5 hours per week. The further an athlete advances over the years the greater hours they will train. The programming for each squad is designed to maximise return for the hours of training assigned. You may notice that at Icon we train for a lot less hours than many other clubs in Sydney. This is because we would prefer our gymnasts to work hard in less hours rather than waste time training more hours to achieve no better (if not a worse) result. We want to provide them with the best value for their time and effort invested as well as promoting a balanced lifestyle.

The only reason we will consider refunds is for serious medical reasons and a doctor’s certificate must be provided. Unfortunately, we cannot do partial payments or refunds if you want to less than the full program from the time you start. We do however offer make-ups if you miss a class. One month’s notice is required for gymnasts who wish to stop their competitive program. This month must be paid for and athletes are welcome to continue to attend their regular training or do the equivalent time in recreational classes.
