We are a fun, friendly club with recreational and competitive sessions in a variety of gymnastics disciplines.
We compete trampolining and double mini-trampolining and will be entering children into tumbling competitions soon. We 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 and double mini trampolinists have won medals at county and regional competitions, and some have taken places in the South West regional squad.
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. Although the children will normally train in bare feet, they will need to bring socks as we sometimes do trampolining. 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.
