Why Gymnastics?

Gymnastics opens many doors. The spectrum of skills developed in gymnastics is so broad that it is a fantastic foundation for any type of sport or exercise, and the mental skills taught in gymnastics can be used to succeed throughout life. Gymnastics develops passion as well as helping create a well-balanced, fit, healthy & happy individual who will be well equipped to face life’s challenges.

Gymnastics for All begins with our PreSchool movement sessions for babies, toddlers and children with or without their parents. We offer an introduction to gymnastics through play. Your child will learn to swing on a bar, hang on the rings, roll in different ways, bounce on the trampoline, use a spring board and walk on a beam. Their balance, co-ordination, physical development and social interaction will improve. We hope to increase self confidence, encourage children to try new things and achieve goals. Children also work towards proficiency pre-school badges.

Our Classes

 Toddler To 2 Years GymDots classes

A structured Parent & Child weekly class for our youngest gymnasts, from walking to age 2. 

A fun and engaging introduction to our fantastic sport led by our fully-trained PreSchool coaches.

2 years+ Parent/Child - Structured gymnastics classes for 2 year olds and above and their parents. Coach led activities which differ each week.

In the Parent & Child class, the parents are there to reassure the children and to help build the relationship with the coach. A great starting place. 

3+ years Independent - Structured gymnastics classes for 3 year olds and above without parents. Coach led activities which differ each week. 

The Independent classes are for those children who have the confidence to try things on their own, without their parents’ involvement, with the encouragement and support of the coaches.

Which class?

Where your child starts depends on their age, and what works best for them.

Some children prefer to have the support and familiarity of a parent while they get to know us. Some jump straight in! Many children start in the Parent & Child class, and move on to the Independent class, once they are ready.

You will need to register in advance for all our structured classes and there will be a wait if the classes are full. 

Most children start by attending two tasters, which are offered at £11.66 for 2 weeks to see if gymnastics is for them.

 

Fees For Structured Classes 
 
Monthly Session Fees
 
Classes are £5.83 per week and are paid monthly in advance by direct debit. We only charge for weeks when classes are running (not Nottinghamshire school holidays, bank holidays, our Christmas break and any other planned closures). 

The fees for each month are based on how many sessions will run, so may vary month to month.

British Gymnastics Membership

All our structured class gymnasts must join British Gymnastics. As well as other member benefits, it provides the insurance needed to attend.  We will send you all the details when you enrol for regular classes. 

Academy Affiliation

The Affiliation fee for our PreSchool members is £15 for a full year to the 31st october, but decreases as the membership year progresses. You will be sent details when you enrol on our regular classes.

 

Our Stay-and-Play Sessions!!
 
Gymnastics play in a safe environment, with parents. Coaches are available to oversee and  supervise the session, but it isn't coached and there is no class structure. Sessions run for 0-5 year olds. 

You need to book these sessions. You can book via the Activities / Other Sessions tab on our Homepage.
