Parent rota is here
Most people don’t know it, but gymnastics isn’t just one sport. It’s a whole range of different types (or ‘disciplines’, as you’ll often hear them called).
The best gymnasts move with incredible strength, control and flexibility. Which means they can perform amazing jumps, tricks, balances and holds.
Is it easy to learn?
You probably already do some basic moves at the moment. Whether that’s bouncing on a trampoline, doing cartwheels, hanging from bars or stretching. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that. But if you decide to learn, you’ll be supported every step of the way by expert coaches.
What is FreeStyle Gymnastics (FreeG).
We offer FreeG at both our Wellington and Willand venues. It is especially popular with teenage boys, but many girls prefer it to formal gymnastics. This video shows some of our freestylers in action at a recent camp:
Excelsior and British Gymnastics
Our club is a member of British Gymnastics (BG). This means we provide a safe, friendly environment with professional coaches to help you learn.
BG insists on the highest standard of coach education and the safest environment for all our gymnastics activities.
You don’t have to be a member of our club or BG before arrive for your first session, but if you decide gymnastics is for you there’s an opportunity for you to become a member of our club and BG.
Sessions are run by James Marshall, who is a Level 2 coach in general gymnastics.
