As a brand new gymnastics club, we are aiming to be innovative and flexible in our class structure to bring out the best in your child and offer a safe and easy to understand progression path for all ages. Our classes are structured across the week so that every group of the same level will have identical opportunities and there is a clear structure for progression and development within the club.
Gym Structure 2022/2023
Babies, Toddlers & Preschool
Our daytime programme for parents to join in with the babies, toddlers and preschoolers offers an entry into our gymnastics programme as well as a fun opportunity for little ones to partake in a sporting activity with a parent, building confidence and independence in our environment as they progress. Aimed at babies to approaching school age.
Gymnastics for All
Our recreational classes are for girls and boys aged 4-9 years with a range of graded classes suited to all ages and ability. Our gymnasts begin in Foundation, 1 hour 15 mins per week and move to Improvers once they have achieved a certain level of independence and skill acquisition. From there they may move to our Advanced or General Gymnastics programme, train 2-5 hours per week and with the opportunity to compete at local competitions.
Our General Gymnastics classes are by invitation and offer a bridge between our Gym for All (GFA) and Squad programmes. Girls in these groups will aim to compete at least twice a year and train around 2-5 hours per week. We do run a single squad group for able boys who wish to compete at a General Gymnastics Level, but do not currently have Artistic provision. Outside of this, we currently do not have provision for boys ages 10+
Artistic Squads (Girls)
Our Squads are by invitational only and are divided into Development and Artistic Squads for girls, with a similar structure on both sides. Progression is grouped by age, aptitude and ability with the aim of supporting gymnasts to reach their personal potential.
Due to a number of factors, we are currently unable to offer gymnastics to boys beyond the age of 9 years. We do accommodate boys in our Foundation, Improvers and Advanced groups and our intention is to have added provision for those age 10+ back into our system by the time the majority of our current boys are ready to move up. We run one small General Gymnastics boys squad which is by invitation only.
