We work to the syllabus of British Gymnastics to give safe progressive learning. Properly taught skills will give young children a head start in their school sporting and physical educational lives as most skills and processes easily transfer to other sports and activities. It also has the invaluable social advantage of enabling young people to play and co-operate with one another in an atmosphere of learning.
The club has the knowledge and experience to teach the most basic to the most advanced skills, right up to multiple twisting and multiple somersaults with correct and precise technique.
To cover the cost of insurance and administration, an annual family membership fee of £12 per family is required. It is because classes are small that it is the reserved place that is paid for rather than the attendance, so absences must be paid for, as in all other termly or block booked classes. However, if you know in advance that you will absent, you may send a friend in your place who can then pay you or you may attend another session within the same month.
We look forward to hearing from you and to joining us.
