6 Week Gymnastic Courses

Tumbling (10-15 years old)Tumbling is a 6 week course which is all about somersaults, flips and twists - and linking them together, one right after the other. If you've already got a bit of gymnastics experience, it's easy to get started with tumbling (not to mention a whole lot of fun)

Freestyle Gymnastics (13+ years old) 
A new and emerging branch of gymnastics which includes aspects of parkour, free running, tricking, break-dance and martial arts in a safe indoor environment. Classes include a structured warm up and cool down lead by one of our Freestyle coaches, followed by an open session for gymnasts to use the equipment in new and creative ways. Gymnasts are given a certain level of freedom to develop their own “paths” within the gymnastics centre, but coaches will be on hand to supervise and to introduce skills to beginners.. 

Pre-school Independent (3-5 year olds)
A structured course for children who are taught gymnastics skills on the pre-school apparatus. Parents do not take part but are welcome to watch the sessions from the viewing gallery.
