The club works on the latest British Gymnastics award scheme - from Award 8 up to Award 1, followed by the Proficiency Scheme - Bronze, Silver & Gold. The Club has adopted three of the disciplines - Floor, Vault and Pairs. The club has to pay its way and fees are charged each term or remaining part of in advance. All awards are presented free at the end of each term. We currently organise two competitions each year. The first is an Arts competition in the spring involving rhythmic equipment, the beam and Sports Acrobatic Sixes. The second is our Annual Championships in July, involving floor, vault and Sports Acrobatic Pairs. Entry into both of these competitions is free for both gymnasts and spectators.
Club leotards for girls and gymnastics kits for boys are preferred and are available for purchase from the club, but they are not essential. Any coloured leotard will suffice or even tee-shirt and shorts. These are currently heavily subsidised by our sponsors. Club tee-shirts are also available - just £2 each. Please ensure that your child has suitable warm clothing to wear, if necessary during the lesson and particularly afterwards. Children should arrive ready changed as the club is unable to provide changing facilities. We operate a 'one club' rule; we will not accept or keep children who also attend other gym clubs or classes - other than school clubs. Children may transfer to us or from us as they wish. Spectating is permitted, though this tends to inhibit the children. No jewellery should be worn and long hair should always be tied back. All work is done barefoot, medical advice is that verrucae are not infectious on smooth dry surfaces.
