We are pleased to announce that our Summer holiday classes are now available to be booked. We have some new and exciting classes including full day classes!
We will be running the following classes:
Gymnastics taster sessions- These are 1 or 2 hour gymnastics classes. They will train in groups of a maximum 9 children to 1 coach. We will group them with similar age children and we will do our best to group boys and girls separately. During the session we will aim to take the gymnasts on as many different pieces of apparatus as possible.
Gym fun day- This class will begin with a morning interactive session from 9-10:30am. During this time the children will learn about gymnastics and have a question and answer session. They will also be briefed about the day and complete an age appropriate gymnastics quiz. This will be followed by a 2 hours gymnastics session from 10:30am-12:30pm. The children will then eat their packed lunch that they have brought with them and complete a colouring competition while their food digests. They will then have a treasure hunt followed by free play from 1:30-4pm. Please inform us if your child has any allergies.
Mini olympics- This is a three-day course running for 2 hours per day. On the first two days, the children will learn routines on vault, bars, beam or pbars, floor and trampoline. On the third day parents and friends are welcome to come and watch a fun competition in our arena where the children can show their routines. All children will receive a participation medal and there will be certificates for special awards. On the first day, the children will pick a number and country from a pot. We would ask them to create a number with the theme of their country for the competition of around A4-A3 size. Be as creative as you can!!
Proficiency award classes- These sessions are for gymnasts who already attend classes and would like to focus on trying to pass their next award. We have separated them into 8-6, 5-3, 1 & 2 and advanced proficiency so that we can really focus the session and help them to pass their award. These session are for 1 hour except the advanced proficiency sessions which are for 2 hours.
Trampoline tasters- children will learn basic trampoline skills following British Gymnastics guidelines. Please ensure that your child brings socks.
Open gym- These classes are for age 4 in full time school to 13 years old. They are a free play session and participants must have a parent or guardian over the age of 18 with them at all times. The classes cost £4.50 per child and you do not need to pre book.
