General Gymnastics

Our General Gymnastics Classes introduce gymnasts to varied disciplines in gymnastics, including apparatus work, Acrobatics and Tumbling. We cater for 3 levels including, beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Sessions are FUN filled and develop children’s core strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance which underpins all gymnastics skill. Children will work towards the British Gymnastics Core proficiency badges which will help progress their skills at the right speed for their age and level, and some even progress to beginner level competitions. Our classes cater for 4 3/4 + years,  for boys and girl.

All our general class run out of the new facility The Base Gymnastics and Fitness Centre, Unit 8 Weldon Road Industrial Estate, Weldon Rd, Loughborough, LE11 5RN. Class options below.

The first session is pay as you go to give your child a chance to see if they enjoy it. After the first week your child’s members account will need to be set up and fees from that point will be monthly via Direct debit. Failure to set up your childs account will result in their place being offered to the next on the waiting list.

1 hour class (£23 per month); 75 min class (£26 per month). Prices are based on an operational year of 41 weeks, spread over 12 even monthly payments (it therefore takes into account periods when the club is shut).

You can cancel your membership with us after providing 1 payment months written notice (a payment month runs from 5th of each month), once we have received written notice we will confirm your last payment date and child’s last session. your child does not have to serve the ‘notice period’, but payment will still be due.  The club will not offer refunds where suitable notice is not given or if a member decides not to attend during their notice period. Please see our LGA parent handbook_ 2019-20 for more information.

All our general classes in the most part run in line with Leicestershire school half term blocks. Full term dates can be found on our notice board and website throughout the year.

Other fees:

The first week is a pay as you go session and after which there is a British Gymnastics Insurance (£17  fee 2019 – 2020) cover which all our members must have, this will be paid directly to BG, we will send information on how to do this. The insurance year runs October-October and the cost is generally not reduced by BG as the year progresses, so the full fee will still be due even if joined part way through the membership year.

There is also an annual £18 club membership fee paid directly to the club. The clubs membership fee reduces by 50% from 1st April each year to £9.  Gymnasts will receive a t-shirt and a gymnast progress diary as part of their membership fee as well as discounts on the clubs proficiency awards and stamps, and reduced rates at our holiday camps.
