We are running our Monday class as normal on Monday 7th May. We hope to see you all there!
We look forward to welcoming our Gymnasts back to club this week. 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
Orange group, Green group and our Adults class 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 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

THURSDAY SESSIONS CANCELLED 01/03/2018
Apologies but due to this evenings forecast being potentially bad we have decided to cancel classes. We wouldn’t want anyone to risk the travel or get stranded in the Gym (however fun that sounds!)

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.
