Gymnastics is the King of Sports and the benefits are endless. Most of all it is #Flippingawesome and at Olympian we have been head over heels about gymnastics since 1965. Join our family today! Olympian is not just a club but a community spanning generations.
Recreational Gymnastics is a great way for anyone to participate in sport in an exciting, fun and safe environment. RECgym is truly a sport for all ages and all abilities and has so many incredible benefits for your child’s development: Strength, Flexibility, Coordination, cognitive function, social development, building their confidence and most important making new friends.
Our programme is designed to keep the gymnasts stimulated and challenged through the year with some great events along the way. Our classes cater for all levels and the gymnasts are grouped by their level so that they can work on the same skill development as a team. We believe in challenging and rewarding achievement in all our classes at all levels. Highlights during the year include Team Challenges, Halloween Haunted House, Christmas Show time, Olympian Proficiency Awards, and annual Demonstration day to finish off the year.

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
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
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!**
