New starters

If your child is a new starter, we look forward to meeting them this 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!

Badges and Spring term watching week

Notices for parents:

When we get back from the half term break we will be working on Proficiency award scheme and Advanced Proficiency award scheme badges. We have a log of which badge your child is working on, however if you are new to the club and know your child has gained badges in a previous club, please let us know which level they are on.

Badge assessments will begin on the first week of term and will continue through to the second week.

Parents watching week will be running on the last week of term: Monday 26th March- Friday 30th March (Good Friday). We will aim to make our award scheme badge presentations during this week, so book it into your diaries!
