It is always great to start sport young and great to introduce them to the world of gymnastics. We take budding little gymnasts from the wonderful age of 6 months, with BABY GYM. Moving into GYMFANTS at 18 months, and then some of our pre-schoolers have shown great potential and improved so quickly, they move onto PRE RECREATIONAL.
It is also just a lot of fun and a great way to burn off some of that toddler energy.
Baby Gym is for children aged from 6 months – 18 months and is a fun way to introduce them to gymnastics. These sessions are coach led for the first 30 minutes, with a warm up song and a fun cool down. You then get the chance to play with your little one for the final 15 minutes, in a safe and exciting environment.
The group is based on the floor, where we bring in the use of our big blocks, shapes, balls and hoops. We also have our preschool bar that the children can learn to negotiate. Parents or carers stay with the children during the session, one adult per child.
It’s a great way for babies and parents to meet others and socialise, and also a fantastic stepping stone into Gymfants, if your child shows a real interest in gymnastics.
Our new class starts from Monday 26th April 2021. The term lasts for 5 weeks and the full term must be paid up front.

The Gymfants programme caters for Pre-School children of 18 months – 4 years. These sessions allow parents to stay in the gymnasium and get involved with the session. We have fully qualified coaches that will greet you and instruct the session, and you can work with your children on taking part.
The class is structured to our Gymnastics Award Scheme and also Pre-School discipline. Your child will understand the basics of Gymnastics, whilst still enjoying our pre-school shapes, foam pits, trampoline, beam, and vault and all the fun that comes with it. These sessions do circuits of the gymnasium apparatus and teach basic gymnastics, getting the children used to participating in a structured class, before moving on to classes such as Pre Recreational Gymnastics and then our main Recreational classes. The also have LOTS of fun!

Following on from the Gymfants sessions, we have our Pre-Recreational Gym sessions for 3 – 4 year olds. These are a more structured session, and pre-schoolers must be independent and able to follow instructions from a coach. They must be happy to stay in a group whilst their parents leave the gymnasium.
In these sessions they will develop their skills further, on all apparatus. This class then makes an easy transition to our Recreational Gymnastics sessions, when they children are old enough.
