Classes

Our Classes

Our classes run on Saturdays and are classified as follows: Tumblers, Springer’s, Flyers, and Twisters. The ages associated with the classes are for a rough guideline only. All our gymnasts are assessed at regular intervals and as their abilities develop they will have the opportunity to move on to the next class.

We test for Little Giants Gymnastics Badges each term and we hope to introduce the British Gymnastics Badges later on in the year. Our badges are based on strength and conditioning, both of which are essential for aspiring gymnasts.
