General Gymnastics Programme

RGA’s General gymnastics programme is a well-established and structured programme delivered by BG qualified, insured and DBS checked coaches, Monday to Sunday during term time.

We integrate children with special needs into our mainstream General programme and ensure there is a fully qualified disabilities coach present to support the child if necessary.

The last week of the term is “teddy bear” week for all pre-school gymnasts. During this week gymnasts can bring a teddy bear to their class and pay £1. All money donated goes towards the up-keep of the pre-school equipment.

The penultimate week of term is watching week during which  parents and family are invited to come along and see their child’s progress.

After School (4+ years in full time education)

  • Classes are 1 hour.
  • Classes cater for mixed abilities and are organised by year groups.
  • Gymnasts are encouraged to learn gymnastics skills at their own pace.
  • All gymnasts are given the opportunity to follow the British Gymnastics badge scheme in addition to the RICHMOND Award Scheme.
  • Gymnasts aged 7 years and above are encouraged to compete in our annual club competitions.
  • Gymnasts are given the opportunity to perform in our biennial Club Festival.
