Our Summer Holiday Gymnastics Activity

Sessions

 

We have been having great fun at our

Summer Gym Activity Sessions. The children

have been enjoying time spent learning new

skills and improving existing ones on the

Beam, Bars, Floor, Trampoline, Vault,

Trampet, Rings & P-Bars.


Our coaching team have also been introducing

some of our new children to the amazing sport

of gymnastics. Some of these children have

never done any gymnastics before and it has

been great to ...see these new gymnasts

wanting to return to the gym to learn some

more.


We have also been focusing on the important

area of sport that is Teamwork.


Our gymnasts were split into groups to take

on challenges to help their team mates travel

across the floor area in different ways with

different scenarios presented to them.


Lots of fun and smiles showed and new

friendships were developed too.

 

See our Facebook page for some great

pictures...

Our Pre-School Gymnastics

We have Pre-school gymnastics classes for

children aged 3years - Reception age, which

are held on:


Monday 1.45pm - 2.30pm 


Tuesday 1.45pm - 2.30pm 


Wednesday 1.30pm - 2.15pm


Thursday 1.45pm - 2.30pm

 

 Each class is a structured session

incorporating all of the Olympic gymnastics

equipment. The individual areas are designed

specifically for our Pre-schoolers with a focus

on balance and co-ordination whilst having fun

on "the big apparatus that my brother & sister

use" quoted by one of our little gymnasts!

 

The sessions are lead by a fully qualified level

3 Pre-school gymnastics coach & assistant

coaches. This enables us to keep the groups

small, allowing time to help our little

gymnasts progress at their own pace and feel

happy trying new things. Grown-ups can sit

and watch their children work with a coach

during the session, but are then encouraged

to join in with a cool-down game at the end.

 

Our Pre-school gymnasts work towards our

own Certificate scheme, which progresses

through movement and skills and will lead

them onto our Recreational program which

they can join when they start to attend Big

School.

 

The cost for a sessions is £3.50


We understand what busy lives our

children have, so all of our Pre-school &

Recreational gym classes are

Pay-As-You-Go.

gymnasts in action.

our Boys Artistic Development

 

Squad.

 

We have a number of boys in our club with

ages ranging from 5 - 18 years. These boys

train 2 - 3 times per week, specifically on

Mens Artistic Gymnastics.


They work on Floor, Pommel, Rings, Vault,

Parallel Bars & High Bar. All of the skills

specific for each piece of apparatus are broken

down into small progressions. This enables

them to learn a variety of skills from one core

element....


The boys also need to work on their strength

and flexibility and this is done through

different conditioning exercises and a lot of

dedication from the boys themselves.


Our Boys Development Squad works to the

British Gymnastics Mens Artistic National

Development Plan, and they have the option

to compete at Club, County and Regional

level.

 

These pictures show some of our boys

competing at a Development Plan Controlled

Competition held at our club.


We are very proud of our boys and are

amazed at how hard they work to achieve

their personal goals.
