Monday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday Gym Stars: The children will be working through our Gym Stars programme using bespoke Beth Tweddle gym stars award system. We aim for them to achieve one award per 10 weeks with their progress being monitored and recorded regulary within their progress booklets.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday HUB Academy: The children will be working through the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and the Advanced Proficiency Awards. Gymnasts will begin at badge 8 pending an assessment from their personal coach within the first few weeks.
Parents can stay for the first session should they wish to do so, however after the first session parents will not be permitted to stay as the coaches will require the gymnasts full attention at all times during the session.
Gymnasts are required to wear a t-shirt and shorts/tracksuit bottoms or leggings with any long hair tied up and not wearing any jewellery. All earrings must be removed and if this is not possible, they must be taped up. They must also bring a drink to their lessons and they will train in their bare feet.
They must also bring along their progress booklet as this is where the coaches will record all progress and mark off what skills have been achieved. If a gymnast loses their progress booklet, a new one must be purchased as a cost of £3.50 so please ensure that they are kept safe.
