WORK TOWARD BADGES
British Gymnastics recognised
Our General Gymnastics programme is now fully open and is COVID-secure; offering weekly sessions to school-age children wanting to learn a variety of gymnastics skills in a safe, fun and friendly environment. Our coaches are supportive and encourage every child to be confident, brave, patient, and to always do their best.
Throughout the year, gymnasts will learn new skills on different apparatus and will work towards their British Gymnastics Proficiency Badges. Gymnasts will also have the opportunity to learn routines and displays – as we look hopefully towards the return of our Gymnastics for All competition in 2021.
Classes run from Monday – Saturday
Our Gymnastics for All programme is structured to offer challenging classes for children of all abilities. Along with our 1-hour classes, we also have a range of longer General and Artistic Proficiency classes on offer for children aged 6 – 11. Places in these groups are offered to gymnasts who progress quickly in our 1-hour classes, and our coaches will decide whether they are suited to a more advanced General or Artistic setting.
If you have any questions regarding our programme structure, our staff, coaches and Gymnastics for All Manager Oli are more than happy to answer your queries.
For your safety – what to expect when you visit us.
We have introduced a number of new procedures to make our sessions COVID-secure, and ensure that our gymnasts and staff remain safe at all times:
- Our car park is now operating as a drop-off/collection area only
- Parents & guardians are currently not permitted to enter the building – to minimise the number of adults present at the club
- On arrival, every gymnast will have their temperature checked and will sanitise their hands
- Class sizes have been reduced, and areas of the gym divided up to allow for constant social distancing between all gymnasts and staff
- Every gymnast will have an individual area for their belongings during their session
- Equipment and areas of the gym in use will be cleaned after every class
- If any gymnast begins to display symptoms during a session (in particular; consistent coughing), they may be asked to isolate away from the group, whilst a parent is contacted to collect them immediately. This is for the safety of all staff and members in attendance.
All classes have staggered start times, are organised by school year, and have a maximum capacity of 10 children – to allow for social distancing within sessions

1-hour General Gymnastics
Our General Gymnastics 1-hour classes provide an ideal introduction to gymnastics for ages 4-9. Children learn skills and use equipment based on a blend of Women’s Artistic, Men’s Artistic and Acrobatic gymnastics disciplines.
Each week, gymnasts will engage in different activities and will use our full-size floor, vault, bars and beam stations. Sessions follow weekly progressions to give every child a balanced experience of General Gymnastics, and the chance to find their favourite apparatus and set of skills.
Gymnasts are organised into groups of 10 based on their school year. Groups remain consistent every week and sessions are specially designed to give everyone plenty of space to socially distance throughout. Together with their coach, every child will do a fun warm-up, stretch, experiment with gymnastics shapes & balances, and develop their floor, vault and apparatus skills.
General Gymnastics Proficiency
Our General Gymnastics Proficiency classes are for those gymnasts who the coaching team believe would benefit from a longer weekly session; allowing them to further develop their strength and skill across the General Gymnastics apparatus. These are 90-minute mixed-gender classes, and gymnasts are invited to join them from both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 at school.
When gymnasts in our 1-hour classes enter Upper Key Stage 2 at school, they join our specially created MyGym groups. These classes are a natural progression for our older gymnasts to enjoy in their own year groups, with an emphasis on providing a wider range of gymnastic activities to choose from. The 90-minute MyGym classes are coached by a range of staff with expertise in Artistic, Tumbling, Acrobatic and Freestyle gymnastics; making each week a different experience for children in Year 5 & 6.
Men’s & Women’s Artistic Proficiency
Places in our 2-hour Artistic Proficiency classes are offered to gymnasts in General Gymnastics classes who we believe would benefit from developing their skills in a more specialised discipline. Each group is for gymnasts aged 6 – 11, and focuses on the skills and apparatus necessary for Artistic gymnastics. Gymnasts in these groups are also eligible to compete in local external competitions throughout the year.
General Gymnastics at Leeds Gymnastics Club
Thank you to everyone at Leeds Gymnastics. You are doing a super job. My little one started the preschool gymnastics and I wasn’t sure how it would work with parents now in the gym but I could not fault how well set up it was. It felt very organised, very safe and really well thought through. We are excited for the rest of term. Well done!

My daughter loved her first class this morning, she didn’t want to leave. Her coach was so good with all the children. Any concerns I had with regards to covid were instantly put at ease with the safety measures you had in place alongside the well thought out plan of the gym. Thank you for all your hard work, we’re really looking forward to next week already ❤️

Thank you to everyone who had made Georgie’s return to gymnastics so brilliant. She did both the pre-school classes and the 3 day transition camp and she loved every minute! The coaches have all been amazing, they have made it so safe, stress free for the kids and exciting. Georgie has missed it so much and is chuffed to bits to be back! She can’t wait to start her reception classes next week. Thank you all for being so wonderful! ❤️ xx
