About the Richmond Gymnastics Association
Registered charity no: 800253
Richmond Gymnastics Association (RGA) is an award-winning charity, delivering gymnastics to over 1500 children and young people. RGA was formed in 1992 as the successor to Staveley Gymnastics Association which was founded in 1960 and continues to live by its’ motto of ‘to every child the opportunity’.
RGA works to provide a community-based gymnastics programme in pursuit of excellence. The gymnasts train in the purpose-built headquarters at Kew and at five satellite centres throughout the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
RGA offers more than just gymnastics and achieve this through a cradle to career approach with opportunities for those aged 8 weeks to 21 years. Not only does RGA encourage and retain (especially female) teenagers in sport, but also offers opportunities for young people to be involved in the sport not only as a gymnast, but as a Coach or Judge. RGA supports their development along their chosen pathway.
RGA also has a large Inclusion programme and acts as a ‘Hub Club’ educating other surrounding clubs about gymnastics for those with disabilities and additional needs.
All RGA coaches are British Gymnastics qualified, Insured and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked.
