Our recreational gymnastics classes run for 1 hour a week and is designed to engage children in gymnastics in a fun and friendly way. Our aim is to develop strength, flexibility, coordination, fitness and confidence.
At the first level, the gymnasts will learn to develop basic movement patterns using apparatus, which is appropriate to their level. As they gain confidence and skill, they will progress onto more specific skill sets and larger apparatus.
