GYMNASTICS. Teaching your children the ABC's of sport
That’s agility, balance and coordination, in case you’re wondering! These skills are essential to all physical activities. So whatever activities your children take up later in life, from dance to rugby, they’ll be fitter, faster, stronger and more coordinated than non-gymnasts.
That’s because gymnastics involves lots of activities children love, from bouncing on trampolines to turning cartwheels, performing somersaults and finding other fun ways of moving. With lots of team activities, it’s also a great way to build new friendships. But of course, while they’re having fun, your children are also learning how to move with skill and confidence.
If your children have any specific physical requirements, our fully qualified and accredited coaches can also adapt the activities to suit them.
Awards schemes and badges
Rewards are a great way to motivate and recognise effort. So there are lots of proficiency awards at every level in gymnastics. Each time your child earns one, there’s an option to buy a badge to wear with pride or a certificate to hang on their bedroom wall.
Reflecting our commitment to improve the delivery of our gymnastics and trampolining classes, we have invested in the latest technology to record the performance of children during their lessons. You may have already seen this if your children take part in our swimming lessons.
Through an internet based Home Portal parents/guardians will be able to access information about a child’s gymnastics and trampolining classes including:
- Your child’s performance against the key competencies outlined in the British Gymnastics Proficiency Award Scheme (updated every 6-10 weeks).
- A rating from the teacher on how they are doing against this competency E.g. Needs practice / Fair / Good
- Notification of when your child is ready to move up a level and the ability to choose from the available times for your child to move into
