REC 0

REC 0 – General Gymnastics

School starters 4 – 5 years

£7.00 ^ *

Our general gymnastics classes are action packed full of fun they are suitable for both boys and girls wishing to do gymnastics outside of a school environment. All children aged rising 5’s upwards are welcome to these recreational classes regardless of their ability. Our aim of these classes is to make gymnastics enjoyable to all children while striving to develop their confidence as well as progressing in gymnastic core skills. Our general gymnastics programme is broken up into 5 recreational classes; REC 0 (school starters 4-5 years), REC 1 (5-6year), REC 2 (7-8 years), REC 3 (9+ years) and REC 4 (11+ years). These classes will be run based generally on age but also on capability. Doing this will enable classes to be more flexible to suit individual gymnasts abilities if need be. Once a term the gymnasts will be given the opportunity to work towards completing a Virtue Gymnastics award.

We have a display team, pre team, a boys and a girls squad here at Virtue gymnastics. Our Squad gymnasts train between 1 and 5 hours per week and complete an additional conditioning programme at home. Our competition squads compete at both county and regional competitions through out the year, they also perform displays over the course of the summer along with the display team. Gymnasts will be invited to join our squad through a potential recognition program from a member of our coaching team. Once a member of the team has concluded that your child shows potential they will inform the director of the club or the head of squad who will then assess your child during their general gymnastics session, if successful your child will then be invited along for a trial. Our squad coaching team strongly emphasise a strong team spirit whilst encouraging each gymnast as individuals to achieve and succeed. Our squads are very successful and hold numerous titles.
