Recreational Gymnastics introduces the sport in a fun atmosphere where fitness, progression and team work are key. This is a great way to learn new skills and progress up through our classes from the beginner group to our Advanced Classes, Tumbling Classes and Display Squads.

Highlights during the year include the Team Challenges, Halloween Haunted House, Christmas Show, Olympian Proficiency Awards, and Routine Demonstrations.

Brief Outline of the Programme

Our recreational gymnastics classes run based on a full-year programme. The gymnasts are introduced to a variety of disciplines that can be found through the sport. For example, gymnasts will learn skills on each apparatus such as bars, floor, vault, beam, air track and much more, and they also get elements of Display Gymnastics, Acro, Artistic and Tumbling. Throughout the year the gymnasts are put into groups based on their gymnastics skills level, in order for them to progress at a rate that suits their own needs and abilities. These levels are based on our Proficiency Awards (Badges), and each year they aim to progress up a level. Some of the higher level Badges can take a number of years to achieve!

Our philosophy is that classes should be inclusive, safe and fun for gymnasts participating in the sport. Hence why our fully trained coaches will develop a gymnast’s confidence and mastery of new gymnastics skills through games and a fun learning environment. At the same time we regularly track gymnasts and offer advanced classes for those who wish to progress onto one of our Squads.

The year programme is split into two payment periods. They work on their Badges Skills for the full year, and each term has it’s own goals and objectives for the gymnasts to work towards:

Term 1 (from September to December – Registration Open Now): Team Gym League & Christmas Routine performances. First half of the Badge Skills.

Term 2 (from January to May- Registration Open from November): Completion of Olympian Proficiency Awards with a Badge and Certificate awards, Cartwheel-a-thon to raise money for the children’s Charity: Barnardos, and an end of year Skill Routine Demonstration.

Term 3 *select venues* (from May to June – Registration Open from April): During this short term we help gymnasts work on specific skill goals tailored to the individual.

Additional to these elements we award our Gymnasts when they achieve a New Skill or Prep for a skill during class, we have Gymnast of the Week/Month awards and we also encourage and motivate our gymnasts with progression goals.

5-7 Year Olds

5-7 Year Olds

This is an energetic class for our 5 – 7 year olds. Its programme is developed especially to keep the gymnasts active and to build their fundamental motoring skills and social skills. It is achieved through play and exciting circuits, and by using colourful apparatus and aids to develop their gymnastics skills!

7-9 Year Olds

7-9 Year Olds

This is a class for 7-9 year olds. It caters for both beginners and more experienced gymnasts. The gymnasts get to work on all the apparatus, which is alternated every other week for variety. The gymnasts benefit from the fun environment, and hard work is always reinforced with reward and positive recognition.

9+ Year Olds

9+ Year Olds

This class is for ages 9+. Again, this class is also for beginners (it is important in the learning process that students are kept with their peer group) and our most advanced gymnasts. Gymnasts that have been training with us through the years really begin to shine at this point in their development. The classes are designed to really challenge the gymnasts, and to make sure that their full potential is been developed.

NOTE: As gymnasts progress it is possible that they may be advanced up to the next class regardless of age.

**Gymnastics shoes are required to be worn in all our classes. These can be bought from our online shop, or from dance shops!**
