What should my child wear for class?
All gymnasts must wear club training kit either a leotard or vest top and shorties/leggings. Tracksuit and trainers are required for the warm up. Hair must be neatly up in a bun and all jewellery removed. Failure to do so is in breach of our safety and insurance policies.

Are your classes insured?
Yes, the club is insured by British Gymnastics. All Coaches, assistants, secretary, welfare officer have been DBS checked. Coaches and assistants also have safeguarding training in place. All the gymnasts are member of BG and have to have BG insurance http://www.bg-insurance.org/
What are your term dates?
All classes follow the school term calendar, expect Monday & Tuesday classes which run all through out the year with a two week break at Christmas and Summer. The Friday Recreational class does not train during school holidays, so gymnast are welcome to train on the Monday / Tuesday instead during this period which is inclusive of the monthly fee.
Can we still join your classes after the term has started?
Yes, depending on places available. You will need to pay the BG insurance no matter in what month you join us. Please contact Jo - the head coach to find out more.
Can parents watch?
We organise an open lesson termly to enable parents to see their children’s improvement. Otherwise parents are not allowed to stay in the gym as it can be distracting to the gymnasts and coaches.
