The Proficiency Award Scheme was developed by British Gymnastics for use in Gym Clubs across the UK. It is designed as an introduction to Gymnastics as a whole, which is why it incorporates elements from Rhythmic and Acrobatic gymnastics. All elements help to improve balance, strength, flexibility and co-ordination, so will benefit any gymnast, no matter their chosen discipline.
The awards start at level 8 and finish on level 1, before moving onto the Advanced Proficiency Awards. Most of the elements will be incorporated into lessons. However, some elements are not suitable for delivery during normal lessons. These will be covered during the gyms badge week, which are held throughout the year. Upon completion of a level, you will be able to purchase a badge and certificate.
