Stay and Play Classes (for those who are walking up to/including age three):

Our ‘Stay & Play’ classes start with a group warm up & stretch, led by our FUNdamentals coaches. During the main part of the session children are able to freely explore the whole gym alongside an adult and use all of our equipment freely. Our coaches are on site to oversee the activity before joining the group together at the end for a whole group cool down.

Structured Classes (for those aged 3 and 4):

Our Structured classes are for children aged 3 & 4 and provides an introduction into the world of gymnastics. The FUNdamentals scheme includes a variety of themes including co-ordination, large apparatus, locomotory skills, balance activities, rebound and rolling. Each term children can gain different badges and certificates for completing activities within the Structured classes.

The classes start with a group warm up & stretch, followed by a set FUNdamentals starter activity which is introduced and changed weekly by our coaches. Some weeks we might be working on introducing the participants to basic gymnastics shapes, other weeks we might break down elements of popular gymnastics skills.

Next the gym is set up with lots of equipment, and our coaches will explain the idea behind each of the activities. Our FUNdamentals coaches will oversee all the activity, however it’s an opportunity for parents/guardians to lead their child around the gym and try to complete all of the stations together. Having adults involved with all aspects of the session allows the children to be supported, encouraged and assisted 1:1 with all elements of the class. Finally, we aim to complete each session with an end activity and cool down.

All children that attend Structured sessions with us will automatically gain a place in our oversubscribed General Gymnastics classes when they reach school age, which means our FUNdamentals classes are a perfect opportunity to get your child started within a gym club from an early age.
