Dear Parent / Guardian   
We are holding a Gymnastics proficiency award testing day (badge day) during the summer holidays. Please check below the time your child should attend (dependant on training day at the gym).  For those of you who don’t know how these work, there are 8 awards with 10 moves on each one.  Your child will have spent several weeks practising these moves.  The awards start at badge 8 and work down to 1.  Once they complete 1 they will work on a routine to gain a medal and then the possibility to work towards the advanced proficiency awards. 
The cost to attend the badge day is £10.00.  Places need to be booked to attend the testing day so please bring the amount owed to your childs next session, £10 ALONG WITH THIS COMPLETED FORM.  We will present the gymnasts with their badges at the end of the term.  Please indicate which date they will be attending.
