GYMNASTICS Gymnastics is one of the most popular sports when it comes to young girls. It is a basic sport, which guarantees success in other sports, because its one of the best ways of training. Our gymnastics hall is old (the board on the front wall says that it is almost 99 years old) but even now it is still used, and over time has been filled with new and better equipment. It is called ‘Sokolsko drustvo’, so when we go to competitions and win one of three best ranks, we are represented under that name.

There is trampoline, various kinds of mats, and other pieces of equipment necessary for successful training.
GYMNASTICS Children are grouped according to their determination, age and willingness. Sometimes they have 2 practices a day, each of them lasting for 2 hours. It is usually girls who are in the gymnastics hall since early age. They are very keen on gymnastics.
