Boys from 4 years old are invited from our recreational programme to join a Development squad where they train and develop skills on 6 different apparatus – Floor, Pommel Horse, Vault, Rings, Parallel Bars and High Bar. They build flexibility and strength and start to compete in regional and national competitions from the age of 8.
Leeds boys gymnastics has a very long and proud tradition of creating some of the top gymnasts in Great Britain and the world. Since the early days of the Leeds Athletic Institute (L.A.I.) when the likes of Dick Gradley, Scott Mackie and Eddie Arnold were the best gymnasts in the country and competed for Scotland and Great Britain, Leeds Gymnastics has always aspired to produce the very best. With new coaching expertise in the last 25 years, Leeds has achieved even higher with representation and medals at the Junior and Senior European Championships, Commonwealth Games, World Championships and Olympics Games.
Most recently, Nile Wilson competed for Team GB at the Rio 2016 Olympics and won Bronze in the High Bar Final. What’s more, we fully expect further future Olympians are already within our ranks. Bring on Tokyo!
