The Club was originally founded in 1985, and is currently based at Woodcote High School. We are a charity and as such funds received are spent on the running of the gym and invested to improve the service and facilities. The Club caters for gymnasts of all abilities and ages, both boys and girls from recreational classes to competitive squads.
The Club takes part in Displays and festivals, invitational, Regional and National competitions. Our Squad members also compete as a team and individually in tumbling events.
Our classes and squads prepare mostly for floor work and acrobatic gymnastics, but we also include coaching in dance, tumbling, trampette, trampolining and airtrack.
We run special pre-school classes on Saturday mornings. The recreational class children all work towards the Winstrada award scheme alongside our own Acro and Tumbling awards, with certificates given out termly. Testing takes place during allocated sessions and children are encouraged to work hard and have individual targets. The recreational classes are fun, gymnast lead sessions.
We are members of English Gymnastics, the London Federation of Gymnastics and British Gymnastics and have been awarded British Gymnastics GymMark Accreditation since 2005 which shows the club is safe, effective and friendly and meets all the stringent requirements set by our governing body.
Our coaches have UKCC coaching qualifications awarded by British Gymnastics, they have also attended safeguarding training and have current enhanced CRB's.
"Jo, I email to say a massive thanks.
Tonight I watched my child stand up and want to show off what she had learnt in gymnastics and she was very proud to do so in front of everyone - it was amazing to watch at the door.
She came out buzzing and she said she was so proud of herself.
We spoke in the car on the way home about how far she has come from the crying in the car all the way there, crying through the warm ups, and now it's her favourite thing to do - she's constantly cartwheeling/flicked her legs/doing splits - shes obsessed and found her happy place!
I can't thank you enough, and the other girls for making her feel so welcome, part of a team and confident through your kind actions and works of praise.
(from a happy parent and gymnast!)
