Competitive Gymnastics


Here at The Academy we have earned the reputation of being one of the best performance clubs in the Country. We are proud to have produced many International Gymnasts who have represented Great Britain around the world, including The Beijing, London and Rio Olympics. Our Elite Gymnasts were also Gold Medalists at the last three Commonwealth Games. Academy competitive gymnasts are recognised by the Coaches as having advanced gymnastic potential and wish to participate in competition.

This is the first rung of the competitive ladder and involves the gymnasts committing to two training sessions per week for a total of 4 hours.

There may be a waiting list for these classes.

If you would like your child to be assessed for this group please contact us or speak directly with your child’s coach, they are best positioned to understand if this would suit your child.

Session Times:

Day Time
Wednesday 4 – 6pm OR 6:15 – 8:15pm
Saturday 8:45 – 10:45am OR 10:30am – 12:30pm

For gymnasts currently in our Novice Squad, there is an additional 2 hour session, that is optional.

These carefully selected gymnasts have been chosen to work towards representation at County, Regional, National and International Competitions.

Gymnastics at this level is not for every child, and our coaches have the experience to assess the suitability of your child for this level. If we feel that your child may be suitable for this programme, you will be spoken to by a member of our staff.

If you feel your child may possess the skills necessary for Competitive Gymnastics but you have not been approached, please email Olivia on olivia@thegymacademy.co.uk. Alternatively please speak with your child’s coach who will be best positioned to give you more information on your child’s readiness for the next level.
