WHAT IS TALENT ID
Talent ID membership at Alpha is an alternative entry level to the club for selected gymnasts and is by invitation only. The aim of the Talent ID routes at the club is to nurture young talent and create high performance competitors of the future.
There are two routes for the Talent ID membership: Route 1 is for 4-6 year olds; Route 2 is for 6-8 year olds. New members are only accepted onto one of the Talent ID routes by selection at an open Talent ID day, through internal assessment within the club, or by assessment on agreement by the Director of Coaching. Membership on Talent ID routes through the club will be reviewed annually and continued on a rolling yearly basis until the maximum age within the pathway.
Members on Talent ID routes must attend one of the two group sessions available: Tuesday 4:00-6:00pm or Friday 4:45-6:45pm. Those on Route 1 must train an additional club session a week, while those on Route 2 must train two additional club sessions a week. There are higher expectations for those on Talent ID routes at the club, however there are also added benefits, including a discount on fees for those on talent pathways.
