Writhlington Gymnastics and Trampoline club aims to give children the opportunity to develop skills that will no doubt benefit them whether they choose to pursue the gymnastics pathway or go onto another sport in the future.
Our gymnastics programme offers children of all ages the opportunity to participate at a level appropriate to their age and ability. We also have a development path which allows children who are particularly talented and gifted to achieve their potential .
Gymnastics underpins all other sports as it offers a wide range of body management skills such as balance, strength, co-ordination, flexibility, body awareness and good physical fitness. All classes are taken by British gymnastics qualified coaches, classes are available for children from 4 years old.
Children under the age of 11 must be accompanied to their sports lesson by their parent or guardian. Children attending lessons will not be released from our care in the absence of their parent or guardian; we would therefore strongly advise that you remain on site incase of any emergency so we can contact you quickly and that you arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the end of your child’s lesson.
