Meadowside Gymnastics Club provides opportunities for young people age four to fifteen years to receive the very best coaching in gymnastics. All coaching is by qualified coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people.

Gymnastics classes for boys and girls provide a structured development programme with the emphasis on the enjoyment of gymnastics and learning. Children can develop balance, co-ordination, spatial awareness, stamina and flexibility whilst working on the pieces of equipment which include the balance beam, a-symmetric bars, floor and vault.

All classes follow the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards Programme. These classes also provide a good foundation for any sports that children may do now or in future with a view to encourage and promote gymnastics for general fitness, health and well-being.

We are a registered centre with British Gymnastics (BG). Parents can have peace of mind that the registered programme conform to BG’s stringent child protection, health, safety and welfare guidelines. We are striving to provide a high quality and welcoming environment for young participants in the sport.

All gymnasts have the opportunity to take part in our annual club competition, although there is no pressure on them to compete if they choose not to. Class placement is at the discretion of the coaching staff. The age of your child will act as a guide only.

Tasters / Assessment Sessions

Taster and assessment sessions take place during school holidays and enable children to experience a gymnastics lesson and be assessed ready for when class places become available. Children already on the waiting list will automatically be sent details about taster and assessment sessions.

Gymnastics is an inclusive sport and we want to make sure that boys and girls have every opportunity to take part in this fantastic sport. In the New Year we are hoping to provide Boy’s gymnastics classes for boys ages 4-12yrs. Boy’s gymnastics classes provide an opportunity for boys to be in a class with other boys. They will learn the ABC’s (Action, Balance & Co-ordination) and basics such as toe pointing, holding position etc., all required to get the shape they need to perform more advanced moves. They will also learn parallel bars, vault, floor and pommel (using a giant foam mushroom) and work toward the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards. Mixed classes for boys and girls will continue to take place at MLC.

We are holding two taster sessions which will give children an opportunity to try a lesson ready for when the new Boy’s Gymnastics classes start in January 2018. The sessions will take place at 9:00am-10:00am on Saturday 25th November (4-6yr olds) and Saturday 9th December (7-12yr olds). To book a place please complete a Boy’s Gymnastics Taster Session booking form and return with session fee to Meadowside Leisure Centre.
