Introducing

GYMNASTICS FOR ALL (GfA)

GYMNASTICS FOR ALL (GfA)
The focus of our Gymnastics for All session if Fun, Fitness and Fundamentals, through Gymnastics with or without apparatus

We currently run a Gymnastics for All (GfA) and Proficiency programme for children who are aged 5 to 16 years old.

Our GfA sessions run each week for 45 minutes and children are encouraged to learn and experience a variety of basic movement patterns across the range of gymnastics disciplines.

The GfA sessions follow a rotating weekly programme which introduces children to the apparatus (Bars, Beam and Vault) whilst also introducing them to Floor Skills including Partner/Group Work (within social distance guidelines) and Hand Held apparatus (Ribbons, Balls and Hoops) and Rebounds skills

We also offer our GfA Gymnasts the opportunity to take part in Key Step Competitions (being a competition framework for ‘grass-roots’ development). Gymnasts will have the opportunity to learn routines in 2 gymnastics areas, being:-

Floor: Sequences of gymnastic skills performed on a small matted area. Routines include balancing, jumping, rolling and flexibility skills. Music is optional at level 3

Vault: Skills are performed travelling on and off a bench (level 1) or box top (levels 2 & 3), at levels 2 & 3 vault can be taught with or without springboard

and compete against similar ability gymnasts within the Club.

We are open all School and most Bank holidays, except for Christmas when the club closes for a few days

Our coaches are very supportive and focus is placed on building confidence and learning new skills through the variety of areas worked

Every child taking part in our Gymnastics for All and Proficiency programme will learn a variety of gymnastics skills in a safe, fun and friendly environment.

Once a quick warm up and stretch has been completed, each week’s session will focus on one of the area of our 7 week program, which enables the child to develop their knowledge and understanding of the concepts. This experience in turn develops the child’s physical skills and body awareness.

The aims of our Gymnastics for All session are to: –

  • Encourage Fun, Fitness and Friendship
  • Provide the children with a positive gymnastic experience through a fun and challenging environment.
  • Provide opportunities on a progressive pathway, which encourages functional movement
