Recreational Gymnastics

Following on from our Pre-School programme, Southampton Gymnastics Club's new recreational classes are split into 2 stages, with an emphasis on fluidity and manouevrability in groupings so each child may be challenged to meet their full potential.

·         Rec Rookies 

·         Rec Springers

All recreational classes are now one hour classes. The sessions consists of learning the basic shapes and movements of gymnastics, including learning skills on a variety of apparatus across the gym.

During each term, children will have the opportunity to work towards and achieve badges and certificates as part of the British Gymnastics Award Scheme. This will encourage children to progress further in gymnastics. Whilst children are participating, having fun and learning new skills, parents can either watch through our waiting area window or take a break to use time as they please.

We also run an Annual Gala (usually in December held at Southampton Guildhall) which children are invited to perform in and to show off what they have been learning throughout the year. There is also be the opportunity for all of our recreational gymnasts to compete in our annual club competition (usually held in June at our Redbridge Gym).

At Southampton Gymnastics we offer the opportunity to those with unique abilities within Recreational Classes to move into our Advanced Recreational class or Development Squad. If you feel you child has ability and would like them to trial, please contact us on 02380 529952 or email admin@sotongym.co.uk.
