Intro to… courses are a great way for you to get involved with the world of gymnastics. At the end of this course you will understand the principles of planning an event, and the various key roles that contribute to a successful delivery. You will also learn about the diverse range of exciting events that exist within gymnastics. – British Gymnastics website
This was a really productive day with Hannah tutoring an ‘Intro to Events’ course to 24 eager young leaders from Blandford Gym Club, Gryphon West Gym Club and Swanage Gymnastics. Here are our two after a busy day of learning! Well done Girls.
Hannah took a group of Gymnasts to assist her with her Level 3 coaching modules 2, 3 and 4. It was a very busy afternoon of exams and we are happy to say she passed all 3. Big thanks to all the Gymnasts who helped out.
Congratulations to Kerry for attending this years NDP National Level Tumbling held at OLGA. She performed 3 tumbles and a conditioning routine. She placed 2nd in her group for her conditioning and placed 3rd overall giving her a Bronze medal at National Level 1. We thank Chris and Dottie for giving up their time to assist with the competition in their roles as a judge and score runner. Well done all.
We look forward to welcoming our Gymnasts back to club on the week commencing Monday 8th January 2018. If you know that your child has been asked to move class and are unsure of its timings please get in touch with Hannah, or check the websites class page. All members class fees must be paid by/on their first class back.
Class time changes
Thursday’s Purple, Orange and Adults groups should already be aware that timings have changed slightly. Please check the websites class page for up to date information
If your child is a new starter, we look forward to meeting them next week. Please arrive in plenty of time for the class, but remain outside until coaches welcome you in. Your child will need to be suitably dressed to participate in the class, we advise shorts or leggings with a T shirt or a leotard, no jeans. Jewellery can not be worn when participating in Gymnastics.
You will be asked to fill in a details form for your child and may drop off or stay to watch your child’s free trial session. At the end of the class you will be given details of how to join the club. The club runs from The Swanage School’s Sports hall, High St, Swanage BH19 2PH
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
The year has just flown by, but we have had a wonderful 2017. Here is a video of some fun things we got up to! Many thanks as always, to our Gymnasts, coaches, volunteers and parents for supporting the club this year.
Parents are invited to come in and watch normal classes on Monday 4th December, Thursday 7th December and Friday 8th December.
The last sessions of term will be the following week where we will be having some end of term fun sessions!
Big congratulations to Kerry for passing her level 1 Coaching exam! Well done to all of the gymnasts who have helped her to achieve this. We also thank the wonderful parents who drove, shared lifts to and from the course dates and exam. It is not a light task to complete a coaching qualification and Kerry has worked very hard to get all coursework and practical tasks done alongside her school work. Well done!
Well done to everyone at Swanage Gymnastics for your efforts in getting involved with Children in need! We had a fun week of wearing something yellow or spotty and colouring in our whole club art work. Thank you to those who donated some money, we raised a fantastic £76.62. Well done!
This year we would like to support The BBC’s Children in need. We will have a few fun side activities for our Gymnasts to take part in during their normal sessions on the week commencing:
Monday 13th– Friday 17th November
For those who would like to donate a small amount to Children in need, we will have a Pudsey collection pot for you to drop your spare coins into! Gymnasts are also invited to dress in Yellow or something spotty to get into the Pudsey spirit! (Nothing too crazy, you will still need to be able to do gym!)

The day went very well and for some of our Gymnasts this was their first tumbling event. Others had the added challenge of moving up a level and performed new skills with confidence. Again we were so pleased by our Gymnasts hard work and lovely behaviour. It was also great to see both Chris and Kerry in judging roles. Well done everyone!
