Gymnastics for All (GfA)

GfA is our Programme for recreational level gymnasts and comprises a one-hour session per week that teaches the fundamentals of Gymnastics in a fun
and safe environment. Gymnasts work towards achieving Proficiency Awards and have the opportunity to take part in the annual end-of-year show
and club championships. GfA is open to all abilities between the ages of four and fifteen.

Waiting List
Please note that we no longer keep a waiting list for individual classes as they get very long and unmanageable. Instead, you should complete an online registration after which you can look for classes with immediate openings. If a class is full, please keep checking regularly as several gymnasts move at the end of every month. We will also email you about class openings to those gymnasts that are registered but not yet in a class. All spaces will be filled on a first come first-served basis.
(Gymnasts that were previously put on the old waiting list will still be contacted first about spaces)

Monthly Fees

GfA classes are £28 per month (no charge for August).

Your first month’s fee (and annual membership) is payable as part of the online enrolment process. You can also request a trial session before you enrol.

Core Proficiency Award Scheme
How many awards are there?
There are eight levels to complete – (Level 8 being the easiest / Level 1 being the most difficult). Gymnasts must achieve 8 out of the 10 skills to pass their badge. As the badges become more difficult, they will take longer to achieve and will require determination and hard work from the gymnasts at these levels. We will also ensure ALL gymnasts receive a certificate for hard work at the end of each term.

What do they learn?
The gymnast's progress through the awards, starting with learning their basic shapes, jumps and movement patterns, before building on their basic skills and learning cartwheels, handstands, rolls and basic vaulting skills. Gymnasts will still train Bar, Beam, Trampette, Floor and Vault skills alongside the badge scheme program.

How often will they achieve a skill?
The aim is that a gymnast will achieve one new skill per week, however, all children progress at different levels and all our skills are taught progressively, so although the awards are there for the gymnasts to aim for, they are not the sole purpose of our program; the purpose is to teach them the basics of gymnastics in a structured environment so that they can build upon and use these skills in the future.

How will my child be assessed?
All coaches have been instructed to continuously measure gymnast’s technique, artistry and neatness to ‘competition standard’ throughout the term and tick off the skills individually as and when the child completes them.

When will my child receive their badge and how much does the badge cost?
Upon completing a level, parents will be notified by email with a link to purchase the certificate and badge priced at £5.50

What happens if my child does not successfully complete 8 out of 10 skills?
The gymnast would continue to work on the required skills. All gymnasts will still receive a certificate for their hard work at the end of the term.
