We are able to offer your child the opportunity to develop key life skills such as co-ordination, strength, confidence and teamwork within a fun and safe environment. All classes are planned and progressive, your child will enjoy developing their early gymnastic skills.

The gymnasts then move on to the large apparatus to develop their skills, including forward and backward rolls; balancing on beams; swinging on ropes, rings and bar; handstand preparations and much more.
