Covid restraints mean that classes are currently 50 minutes per session to accommodate all it’s members.
Recreational classes now follow CGA’s award scheme which ranges from level 1-7 & children can achieve a certificate for each piece of apparatus for each level. Some badges are harder to pass then others and can sometimes take a couple of terms. We extend the award scheme by learning skills across all the apparatus used in men’s/women’s artistic gymnastics.
All sessions are very well organised and prepared. The gym has zoned areas, to allow us to utilise the space available in a safe and productive manor. We have a fabulous team of young leaders that support the floor skills and help children that have special educational needs, this allows the club to be inclusive. A 1hr session runs as follows: 10 min warm up, 15 mins on floor skills (extended to help pass badges) 3 x 10 mins apparatus. A 1.5 hours session runs as follows: 15 min warm up, 10 mins conditioning/basics, 4 x 15 pieces, 5 min cool down.
