What we do in Recreational Classes
Gymnasts start with the Bronze Star award and work through conditioning, choreography, vault, bars, beam and floor moves, collecting a star for each move performed to our required standard. A certificate is available for each of the 6 disciplines and a bronze medal for achieving all the moves and collecting all the stars at that level, the next award is Silver which has more difficult moves building on the skills from Bronze and then on to the Gold Star award. When our gymnasts have achieved the Gold Star standard and gained thier Gold medal then they are ready to enter competitions, this can be at a general gymnastics level or a more advanced Women’s Artistic Gymnastics level.
Our lead coaches are all BG qualified and trained in the current UKCC method of delivery which is child-centred. They are supported by young leaders who are or have been gymnasts themselves.
What to wear in class
A leotard or shorts/ leggings and t-shirt. Avoid loose fitting clothes and tops with hoods for safety reasons. Shoes off before entering the gym, belongings are put in the designated area. All jewellery must be removed and long hair tied back.
Food and Drink
Please bring a drink in a suitable container, we do not sell food or drink on site. We do not encourage the eating of snacks/food during class.
Progressing in the sport
Many children from our Recreational classes continue into our squads. To prepare them for the transition to training in our squads, pre-squad classes are run. These pre-squad classes aim to gradually introduce the gymnasts to training and competing at a higher level.
