Standard Scheme

The Standard Scheme for boys and girls has four levels:

  • Emerald
  • Sapphire
  • Ruby
  • Diamond

Each level has eight different sections of apparatus with twelve skills to complete in each (10 out of 12 to pass). Therefore the four levels consists of 96 skills each, forming a comprehensive learning programme for gymnasts and coaches. The Coaching Guides have illustrations of all the skills listed.

Girl’s sections are: Vault, Bars, Beam Gym, Beam Acro, Floor Gym, Floor Shapes, Floor Acro and Body Prep

Boy’s sections are: Vault, Bar, Parallel Bars, Mixed App (Rings and Pommel), Upper body & Gym, Floor Shapes, Floor Acro and Body Prep.

When a section of a level is completed, the book is marked by the coach with the official stamp and a medal is awarded to the gymnast.

Medals are available as ‘boy’ gymnasts or as ‘girl’ gymnasts. Every design is different for every section and level. Also available are personalised medal displays to hang their collection of medals.

At the end of an entire level where all eight sections have been completed, a certificate and T shirt are available to mark the achievement.
