After School Classes

GYMNASTICS; A SPORT THAT CAN AID MULTIPLE SPORTS

GENERAL INFORMATION:
 
BENEFITS
Our classes are a great place to make new friends in a fun, safe environment.  During the classes children will learn a variety of skills to aid them in any sport they may wish to take up in the future.  Our after school classes help improving fitness, fundamentals, co-ordination, body control, confidence, self esteem, listening skills & cognitive learning. 

We pride ourselves in providing safe, fun and challenging after school recreational classes for both boys and girls aged 4 to 15 years of age.

ANNUAL RECREATIONAL CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS
 
We hold our recreational club championships once a year at the end of the Spring term. Our after school class members are encouraged to participate in this fun, low level competition.  It's a brilliant way for the children to showcase their skills to family members, with lots of ribbons, medals and trophies to be won.


WATCHING WEEK
Due to the size of our facility and the number of members, we are unable to cater for spectators within the gym area every session. With this in mind we hold a Watching Week once a term, when parents are welcome to watch their child's whole class from a designated viewing area. 
(For the safety of our members all spectators must follow the spectators guidelines which are displayed in the gym office during Watching Week)
GIRLS CLASSES:
 
Our girls after school classes are structured on ability level only, with 5 different level classes available;
NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED, ELITE 
 
The girls work towards our very own badge scheme which has been  devised to ensure all our members progress on the relevant apparatus available within our facility. 
 
Our badge scheme starts on badge 10 and works down to 1 and plays an important part in the progression through the class levels.
 
Novice Level: BGC badges 10, 9, 8 & 7
