For 4 years old and up, gymnasts train on 6 apparatus – Floor, Pommel Horse, Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars & High Bar

Boys from 4 years old are invited from our Gymnastics for All 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 Men’s Artistic Gymnastics has a 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. In 2016, Nile Wilson competed for Team GB at the Rio Olympics and won Bronze in the High Bar Final.

A new chapter of Leeds gymnasts are continuing the tradition with Jack Stanley helping Great Britain to a Bronze medal with floor and vault finalist spots in the 2022 Junior European Championships. Most recently, Luke Whitehouse and Harry Hepworth competed for Great Britain at the European Championships in Antalya, Turkey in 2023. The GB Team won bronze and Luke Whitehouse was crowned European Floor Champion.

But, we are just getting started – we fully expect further, future Olympians are already within our ranks. Bring on Paris, L.A. and beyond!
