Fees
Classes are paid for on a termly basis (3 terms a year) and are priced at £6.50 per class. Bronze level membership is required at an annual rate of £35.

GfA Badge Scheme
The badge scheme is a year round programme which ranges from level 5 which is the easiest to level 1 which is the hardest, this programme is designed to teach gymnasts the fundamental techniques of gymnastics through step-by-step progressions on the following pieces;-

Compulsory
Floor & Vault

Plus, two of the following
Beam, Trampette & Bars

Gymnasts will need to pass 4 of the 5 pieces throughout the year to progress to the next level.

Term 1
Term one will focus on the Floor and Vault requirements.

Term 2
Term two will focus on the Trampette and Beam requirements.

Term 3
Term three will focus on the Bar requirements.

Although these pieces will be the focus for each term, the gymnasts will still get to use all pieces of equipment to maintain the fun element of training.

Testing process

After each term
Testing will take place 3 weeks before the end of each term. If your child is successful in passing their test, they will receive a certificate for that term. Those who are unsuccessful in passing their level the first-time round will have one opportunity to retake the test the following week. Those who are unsuccessful a second-time will fail that piece but still continue through the process.

At the end of the year
If your child is successful in passing 4 out of the 5 pieces after all 3 terms, they will be rewarded with a certificate/medal at a cost of £3.50, they will also be moved up to the next level. Those unsuccessful in passing 4 out of the 5 pieces will be given a certificate for their hard work over the year but will remain on the same level for the following year.

Payment
At the end of third term, successful gymnasts will receive a slip confirming they have passed the level and a fee of £3.50 will be applied to your paysubs online account. Once paid, your child will be presented with their medals and certificates at the end of their session on the last day of the term.

Parents: The main purpose is for your child to develop their skills at their own pace so please do not rush this process if your child is unsuccessful the first-time round.
