We are a fun, friendly club with recreational and competitive sessions in a variety of gymnastics disciplines.
We compete trampolining, double mini-trampoline and tumbling and also have sessions in recreational artistic gymnastics and freestyle gymnastics (based on parkour, tricking and freerunning). All children who attend the club work towards British Gymnastics proficiency awards and develop competition routines or tumbling passes when they are more advanced. Please note we do not compete artistic gymnastics.
Our trampolinists have won medals at county and regional competitions, and some will be entering double mini-trampoline competitions in the near future.
Many of our gymnasts have won medals at the Devon Games to Inspire and South West Youth Games, and we will be entering more into tumbling competitions very soon.
If you are new to the club, you might find the following information useful:
What to wear
Beginners: Leotard or t-shirt and tight-fitting shorts or leggings. Avoid trousers or tops with buttons. Dresses, jeans and crop tops are not suitable.
Intermediate/advanced: Leotard and shorts or leggings
Please ensure that long hair is tied back, and that all jewellery is removed or taped.
We require gymnasts to train in bare feet. If your child has a verruca, please ensure that it is covered. If this is not possible, they will need to wear footwear suitable for physical activity, such as trainers, plimsolls or gym shoes.

How to pay
At the moment, we can only accept payment by cheque. If your child is due to start at the club and you can only pay by cash, please email vicki @ ocrasport.org.uk
Payment is made on a half-termly basis and is due on the first week of each half term. Parents whose children are trying the club for the first time can pay for their first session to see how they get on, and then pay for the rest of half term the following week if they decide to continue.
