Leading the summer camp is Absolute Gymnastics highly qualified British Coaches, Holly Jervis and Kerstin McKelvie who simply can’t be beaten. Holly, a former competitive gymnast who has been coaching since the age of 14, holds a passion for Acro, Artistic and Tumbling.
Kerstin has been coaching for 12 years and represented Great Britain in the European Championships and also holds a Bachelors Degree in Strength and Conditioning. Together they form a dream team delicately balancing expert tuition with being brilliant with children and providing heaps of fun.
All of this experience has rubbed off on their students in Dubai of course, who regularly compete in USAG competitions and often take away great experiences, happy memories, increased confidence and MANY medals and trophies along the way!
The activities that form part of the Absolute Gymnastics summer camp will be varied and include exercises, fun and games, stretching and skill work on the floor as well as getting to use apparatus like the beam, bars and the vault.
This all depends on the age of the child and of course their natural ability and mental drive, so groups will be separated according to age and ability. On top of this, a child’s gymnastics or sporting experience will greatly determine their learnings. However, beginners will typically work on preparing skills from level 1 USAG such as perfecting handstands and cartwheels on the floor, balances and dismounts on the beam, shape jumps and handstands on the vault as well as pullovers and casts on the bars.
More experienced gymnasts will have the opportunity to work on upgrading the level they’ve previously competed in. So, things like round-off’s on the floor, jumps on the beam, mill circles on the bar, handstands on the vaultor even back handsprings on the floor, leaps and handstands on the beam, forward circles and kips on the bar, handsprings on the vault and this can even go even further depending on their abilities.
