What Gym Juniors is all about
The Gym Juniors session offers children aged 3-8 years, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of gymnastics in a safe and structured environment. Children will be coached by a senior coach, achieving all those important skills such as balance, co-ordination, strength and flexibility. The sessions will challenge each child, as they developed skills such as; body shapes, forward and backward rolls, jumps and land drills, trampet and vault work. All children will work towards their British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards.
What Gym for all is about:
In our Gym for all sessions are aimed at the development of fundamental shapes that underpin all gymnastic skills such as tuck, pike, straddle, straight, dish, arch, front support, back support, shoulder stand and bridges; thus, giving them a strong base in the basics. Once this has been achieved, they will move on to more advanced skills such as forward rolls, backward rolls, jumps, headstands, handstands, cartwheels, walkovers and tumbling combinations. As the gymnast’s strength and confidence grows, they will move onto flighted skills such as handsprings, free cartwheels, back flicks and somersaults. We work hard to develop each gymnast as an individual and help them achieve their goals. We do this by assessing each child and placing them at the correct British Gymnastics Proficiency level, which will not only build their confidence but create a challenging environment. All sessions will be run by a senior coach.
