Our gymnastics club was established in 2004. From then we have gone from strength to strength. We were one of the first clubs in Leeds to gain GymMark which is a British Gymnastics Kite Mark recognising our club as Safe, Effective and Child Friendly.
All our staff are professionally qualified, DBS checked, experienced and enthusiastic about young gymnasts progressing well and enjoying the experience.
We have recently had a new sports hall built that houses our gymnastics club. New equipment including bars, beams, vault, sprung floor and an air tumbling track gives our gymnasts an amazing opportunity to engage in gymnastics to a very high level.
Throughout the year we focus on different aspects each term:
>Autumn Term - September to December
Gymnasts will progress their skills throughout this term focusing on strength and flexibility, allowing gymnasts to learn new skills and improving old ones.
>Spring Term - January to March
Gymnasts will continue to progress their skills as well as work towards a Easter Display where parents are invited to watch and see how much their young gymnast has progressed. Hard work continues throughout this term in preparation for YMCA Gymnastics Awards.
>Summer Term - April to July
All gymnasts have the opportunity to undertake the YMCA Gymnastics Awards which shows progression from level 8 to level 1. The gymnasts then have the opportunity to gain Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.
Gymnique is for pre-school children. Preschool gymnastics teaches important skills like balance and co-ordination. With expert supervision and a playful environment, it’s a great way for them to have fun and lay the foundations of a healthy, active lifestyle. There are lots of exciting activities to get involved in. The sessions are always energetic and entertaining. While they are having fun with new friends, they’ll also be getting a head start in the world of physical exercise.
