Competitive Gymnasts: These Development Camps are not suitable for gymnasts training at a Regional Level or higher (9+ hours).

If you are a low level competitive gymnast, attending from another club, you must first inform your club of your attendance before booking on.

What we do: Gymnastics Development Camps do exactly what they say on the tin! The day starts with a big group warm up run by our experienced coaches. From here the coaches run a circuit style conditioning set, they make it lots of fun – you have to be strong to be a Gymnast you see.

Once your muscles are awake and ready to go, you’ll do a big group floor session. Here you work on the fundamentals and basics of Gymnastics, making sure they are done to perfection. After the floor work, the coaches split everyone into groups and then the apparatus work starts. Throughout the day you’ll also be collecting stamps for hard work, good attitude and new skills too.

During the rotations you get to go on top of the range, Olympic Sized Equipment with your coach. Our coaches work towards the needs and goals of every child, working hard to achieve new skills around all pieces of apparatus. After the first two rotations it’s lunchtime, you will eat in our café area and whilst your food is going down, (we wouldn’t want any upset tummies) you watch the start of a film.

After your food has settled, it is time to go on three more apparatus. Once you have worked on all the equipment with your coach, it’s time to stretch, cool down and time for the presentations. The presentations are very exciting, the coaches have some prizes for the hardest workers, but don’t worry everyone goes home with something for their hard work.

What to wear: Please come appropriately dressed – (eg: t shirt & shorts, joggers or a leotard) clothing with zips, buckles and buttons will damage our equipment and cannot be worn. Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery is to be worn.

What should I bring: Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink.
