The skills learnt in gymnastics, both physiological and psychological can underpin a child's performance and success in many sports and indeed in other areas of adult life.
These sessions are designed for children from crawling babies up to 4 years. They are informal play sessions for parents and children, and a great way to introduce little ones to basic equipment and the gymnastics environment.
These sessions are designed for pre school children from 3 years old. Classes are led by our qualified coaches, with no more than eight children per group. Structured sessions provide a fun enviroment for children to learn basic gymnastic skills and work towards our Badge Award Scheme.
Coached gymnastic sessions for children above the age of 5 wishing to develop floor movements, work on the vault, skills on the bars and beam, plus a variety of other equipment. Junior gymnastics run in eight week blocks and must be booked in advance, as children progress through the award scheme.
