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!)
On Sunday 5th November we took 9 of our Gymnasts to compete in the ‘DSYGA Club Tumbling’ competition in Poole. We were pleased to have come away with the following results:
Level 1: 1st place, 8th place, 9th place, 12th place
Level 2: 5th place, 7th place, 7th place
Level 3: 2nd place, 5th place
You may view all of the results for each round via these links: Round 1 Results Round 2 Results Round 3 Results
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!
To order a club leotard in time for Christmas please return your order form and payment by Sunday 29th October.
You may email the order form to Hannah@swanagegymnastics.co.uk and send a payment via BACS or alternatively bring the order form and payment along to class. Our leotard order form with size chart and prices can be seen on this link: Leotard order form
Don’t miss out!
There is a new process for registering your child with British Gymnastics. This must now be completed by YOU directly through the BRITISH GYMNASTICS WEBSITE, unlike previous years when we have done this for you.
Parents or Guardians will have to register current club members online. Please follow this link to register. PLEASE NOTE THAT REGISTRATION WILL OPEN AT 8AM ON 1ST OCTOBER 2017.
Once you have completed this process your child’s name will show up on our end and we will make the payment to complete the membership using the BG fee you have already paid at the start of this term.
Please note that British Gymnastics membership is your child’s insurance. WITHOUT THIS YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE INSURED AND CAN NOT PARTICIPATE UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE REGISTRATION.
Issues with accessing the internet can be discussed with Hannah who can be contacted by email: email@example.com or phone: 07486099563
If you have any questions there will be information and guidance throughout the process and support and information available from the British Gymnastics Customer Service team on 0345 129 7129 or in live chat.
Please make sure you complete the registration as soon as possible from the 1st October.
There will be no classes running on Thursday 28th September as The Swanage School have their open evening and will need use of the sports hall. This change will not effect the fees you have paid as we have already accounted for the missed sessions for the open evening.
This will also mean no Adults Gymnastics will be running on this date.
Many thanks, Hannah
