Gymnastics

Gymnastics underpins all other sports, developing BALANCE, CO-ORDINATION, STRENGTH and FLEXIBILITY.  Repetition and practise of core gymnastic elements as well as the challenge of learning new and exciting skills encourages sound physical development at the same time as building confidence. Gymnastics classes bring a wealth of beneifts to the developing child including:

  • Enhancing physical development & creativity
  • Increasing confidence
  • Developing listening skills & social skills
  • Practising good sportsmanship
  • Developing self-discipline, organisation & positive ethic

We offer a full range of gymnastics classes within a friendly, effective environment.

At Alton Gymnastics Club we want to help your child enjoy a Gymnastics experience which is fun, progressive and rewarding.

Our program is designed to give children the opportunity to progress at a pace that suits them, whether they want to take one class a week or more, the benefits of gymnastics are enormous.

Our primary philosophy is to provide OPPORTUNITY at all levels whilst giving parents and gymnasts the freedom to choose which program will best suit them and their aspirations.

We cater for all levels of ability with Recreational Classes for those wishing to attend once per week, Development Programs for those with more time to dedicate to the sport and Competitive/Performance Squads for those who reach the standard required to represent the club at County and Regional events.

During a gymnastics class, children are not only developing physical strength, control, skill and awareness...  They are also building on their social skills, listening, following instructions, and developing self-discipline.

Alton Gymnastics Club are a not-for-profit community organisation dedicated to providing quality gymnastics classes and training in Alton and the surrounding areas.  Class fees cover the cost of hall hire and coaching and we run regular events which enrich the program as well as serving as fundraisers for new equipment and maintenance.
