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.

Progression into our Display Team is at the discretion of the Gymnastics Manager. It is our most advanced class and concentrates on multiple skill tumbling passes, with front and back somersaults, layouts and twisting. The gymnasts work with our dance specialist putting routines together with high level dance and tumbling elements on the floor and trampettes.
