Learn some new skills and play some exciting sports on our courses

A range of sports courses are available for active little bodies..




GYMNASTICS. Teaching your children the ABCs 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.
