More Details

What will I do?

Gymnastics holiday course weeks:

Gymnasts are split into small groups based on their age and gymnastic ability. Within these groups they will rotate around the week’s activities.

  • Setting a Personal Goal – Children will be asked to choose a particular skill with the assistance of our coaches which they will work towards over the course of the week to achieve.
  • Apparatus Work – Children will have use of all our equipment to develop a range of new skills. The apparatus work will include air track, box, beam and trampette.
  • Floor Work – Each day there will be a different gymnastics theme, and this will set up the focus for the floor work. These activities will look at the fundamental skills within gymnastics and include shapes, forwards and backwards rolls, cartwheels, headstands and handstands. This work will be added to the goals that the children will have chosen.
  • Introductory Work – Gymnasts will have the opportunity throughout the week to sample different types of gymnastics including: Team Gym, Tumbling, Aerobic & Free Running.
  • Routines – The children will use their creativity to form routines in small groups.
  • Refreshments – Each day the children will be provided with drinks and wrapped biscuit to have during their break. If you wish to provide refreshments for them to have during this time then you are more than welcome. Children staying for the whole day will need to bring a packed lunch.

Please note that due to COVID-19  restrictions our end of week display that we usually use to showcase the week’s work will not be going ahead. We hope to recommence our displays as soon as possible.


Adult & child pre-school open gymnastics sessions:

Our pre school open gym sessions offer our youngest gymnasts an introduction to exercise and the world of gymnastics in a fun and safe environment encouraging children to develop their sense of co-ordination, balance and agility. These sessions promote exploration learning with adults accompanying their child across all our different activity stations.  The children are introduced to our activity stations allowing them to practise basic skills such as rolling, throwing and catching at their own pace A variety of larger gymnastic equipment is used to encourage them to balance, jump and climb. Each session will finish with a coach led nursery rhyme where children will engage their imagination and perform actions to music


General gymnastics open gym sessions:

Our open gym sessions welcome all children to come along and get involved with gymnastics at their pace in a relaxed, friendly and fun environment.  All sessions will start with a coach-led warm up and then move into free flow around all of our activity stations. The children will have access to all of our gymnastics equipment set up to work on a variety of activities of their choice, including:

  • Floor skills – including flexibility and conditioning
  • Beam
  • Box
  • Trampette
  • Air Track

Every equipment station will have a coach designated to supporting the children with the activities. All of our coaches are there to give guidance and help the children learn and engage with different skills of their choice.


Our session leaders have undertaken first aid and safeguarding qualifications. All coaches of applicable age are enhanced DBS checked.

Additional measures and training have been provided to our coaches to ensure our courses are COVID-19 safe. For more information click here.
