Opportunity for gymnasts to show off their talent to friends and family
Our General Gymnastics programme is for all school aged children wanting to learn a variety of gymnastics skills in a safe, fun and friendly environment. Our coaches are supportive and focus is placed on building confidence and learning new skills using all our apparatus.
Gymnasts are encouraged to work towards completing award schemes and earning their badges in line with the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and there are opportunities to display their talents at annual displays and in-house club competitions. Classes run throughout the week and weekend.
For those children showing a particular aptitude / interest in gymnastics, opportunities are available as beginners in all of the disciplines offered. Our team of dedicated coaches are always ready and willing to answer any of your questions.
Our General Gymnastics 1 hour class provides an ideal introduction to gymnastics, with aspects taken from women’s artistic, mens artistic and acrobatic gymnastics disciplines. The focus is very much on having fun in the gym and developing the basic elements of body awareness, strength and flexibility. Gymnasts will take part in a group warm-up with all the coaches. This is followed by a skills circuit, using all the different pieces of equipment, working in small groups of 8-10 with an individual coach.
Our General Gymnastics 1.5 hour Proficiency classes are for those gymnasts who the coaching team believe would benefit from a longer session. The children continue to experience all the apparatus spending the most time on Floor and Vault.
DISCIPLINE SPECIFIC PROFICIENCY
Discipline specific Proficiency classes are for those gymnasts who have been selected from our 1 hour classes to progress and develop their skills in a particular discipline. We offer Proficiency classes in Women’s Artistic, Acrobatic Gymnastics and Men’s Artistic. Each class is 2 hours long and will focus on developing the skills needed to compete in local and regional level competitions.
All our gymnastics in our General Gymnastics and Proficiency programme follow an annual plan which utilises our Spiral Curriculum of key themes.
Each lesson is focused on one of the themes of Balance, Rebound and Rotation. The more often gymnasts revisit the key themes the further they develop their knowledge and understanding of the concepts. These experiences in turn develop the child’s physical literacy skills and body awareness.
The aims of our classes within our Gymnastics for All (GfA) programme are as follows
- Provide the children with a positive gymnastic experience through a fun and challenging environment.
- To develop well rounded individuals with a growth mindset to promote a positive outlook.
- Provide opportunities on a progressive pathway, which encourages functional movement.
