Gymnastics Programme Structure

Children are introduced to Gymnastics from in our Gymfants class which is a parent and toddler session aimed at children from 18 months to 3 years old. From there, the children will work through our Gymstars (3-5 years) program, our age 5 – 7 and 8+ programmes with the opportunity to continue gymnastics further with our new Youth Gymnastics Classes.

All of our classes will work towards the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and will be continually assessed throughout the classes.

If your child is selected to join a class that exceeds 1 hour, the payment will be higher depending on the duration of the class.

A fun filled class aimed at teaching the basics of rolling, balance, co-ordination, jumping and hopping, learning to listen to instruction and following them.

Children will work towards the British Gymnastics Association Fundamental awards scheme.

Please note: Parents must stay with their child throughout the session.

An independent class teaching all the basic gymnastics shapes in a structured environment. Forwards/backwards rolls, handstands, cartwheels and a fun circuit around the apparatus to improve co-ordination, balance and gross motor skills.

Classes are either 45 minutes or one hour. Once through the warm up and stretch boys are introduced to more complex skills and apparatus circuits with emphasis placed on strengthening confidence and competency in gymnastics.

Classes are either one hour or an hour and a half duration. Your child will either come through from our younger year’s program or be a beginner age 5+. The sessions open with a fun warm up and stretch, which teaches the importance of flexibility. Learning basic gymnastics skills on each piece of apparatus, these classes will challenge the gymnast. Rhythmic sessions use balls, hoops and clubs instead of equipment. Progressions and conditioning are the key factors at this level, with the emphasis placed on strengthening your child’s confidence and competency in gymnastics. Children will works towards the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards Scheme.

Designed for the more capable gymnast, building on the skills already learned and accomplished. Classes follow the same format as the beginners with the exception of extra time on the gymnasts floor so higher level skills can be taught. Children begin working on a wide array of tumbling skills making them more agile and spatially aware. Choreography is also part of the structure in these classes. Progression into this class is through talent identification based on ability not on age.
