CORONA VIRUS UPDATE – 19th March 2020
Due to the ongoing concerns around corona virus and new government recommendations, As from immediate effect the gym will be closed until further notice. We have had mixed feedback regarding staying open until now, we can assure everyone we have both members and staff safety at the top of our priority, we have been re assessing the situation daily and following Government & British gymnastics advice along with extra cleaning and adjusting the way we are teaching the skills.
We will continue to keep all members up to date through email and social media, we also hope to be able to upload some videos to help you stay stretched and conditioned while not being able to attend classes.
We would ask for your support through these very hard times, please keep in mind we are a small business and really hope after everything has settled down that we are in a position to be able to re-open again. The last few years have been very tough for us as a club hence the reason for so many changes in classes recently, we are very worried with the current situation that we are going to struggle to meet current overheads, for most of us this is our only form of income to meet both personal and club commitments. We will be doing everything we can to try to keep the club in a position to re-open as soon as we feel is safe to do so within the Government and British gymnastics advice.
This is a real shame for all gymnasts especially some of our elite gymnasts who have been working all year for the final competition’s of the season some of who this would have been their last, for both the gymnasts and us as coaches it’s very heart breaking to train for something that has had to finish without the last few national competitions. When we return we will arrange make up sessions for lessons missed this term.
We greatly value all our club members and staff and hope everyone will continue to support us through these hard times.
Thank you so much for your cooperation in these uncertain times, we wish everyone well. Stay safe & we hope and pray we will see you all again soon.
We actively encourage learning through play working on flexibility, strength, coordination, balance and confidence.
Gymnastics For All
From beginners to advanced, children learn & develop their flexibility, floor skills, trampoline & rebound, vault, bars, beam, acro, & tumble.
We have a selection of different squads most children are selected from one of our more advanced classes.
I can totally recommend this club and sessions as it is structured, fun, safe and a positive learning environment for my son to get confident and learn lifelong skills whilst having fun,. There are classes for all ages and abilities and opportunities to volunteer and learn to coach at the club. So it keeps gymnasts in the sport pursuing a hobby/sport they love which is fantastic.
Gymnastics was so much more then a Sport to me not only did it teach me to get physically fit, strong and flexible, it taught me discipline and hard work. It also made me mentally strong and taught me to never give up no matter what obstacles get in the way. Being part of L & G was like being part of another family. People were always there to support you and to have fun with. Being a coach also gave me a chance to give back to the sport and see younger gymnasts develop and grow over the years. Without gymnastics I wouldn’t be the person I am today!
Both our daughters (age 6 & 10) thoroughly enjoy their classes every week. There is a fantastic balance of fun, enjoyment & hard work. It has been a joy to see them both develop both physically and mentally through their training and performances as part of the club.
I started gymnastics at L&G gymnastics club at a very young age and have loved the sport ever since! Throughout my life I have moved between various clubs and trained up to seven times a week. I did artistic gymnastics up until I went to secondary school when I knew that I had to reduce my hours due to school work. I was seriously considering giving up but decided to change to acrobatic gymnastics at L&G where I trained for about 4 years before finally giving up when I went to university. Having trained as a gymnast at a high level for many years, I feel that this has not only allowed me to maintain a good fitness level, but has taught me discipline and commitment, developed my time management skills, as well as how to work well as part of a team. After many hours of training at L&G gymnastics club, it not only became the place where I spent most of my evenings but where I formed friendships and memories that will last forever, with other gymnasts and coaches. I was also involved with coaching younger gymnasts for a number of years which enhanced my communication skills and confidence working with children of different age groups. I am very grateful for all of the opportunities that I was given during my time at L&G gymnastics club. I can definitely say that I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I did without all the support and dedication of the coaches.
I always look back on my time at L&G Acrobatics extremely fondly and I am thankful for all of the friends I made and life lessons I learnt. I was a gymnast at L&G from the age of 5-18 and can thank my coaches for not only my success in the sport but also my ability to make friends and be confident in my day to day life! As well as training as a gymnast I also learnt how to coach through L&G and got my Level 1 General Gymnastics coaching course which I have gone on to use throughout my uni career as a cheerleader. Thanks to my gymnastics I know how important it is to keep fit and to this day I still love exercising and keeping healthy. My love of the sport is one of the reasons I have decided to begin training as an osteopath this September, so I can truly say gymnastics has shaped my life!
My years in gymnastics are very fond memories. The self-discipline, commitment and teamwork skills have been widely applicable in both my social and working life. The self-confidence and determination I developed through the sport have enabled me to pursue further passions such as travelling and delivering therapy to children who are yet to develop that confidence. Even the toughest times; sweat, tears, injuries... these times built a powerful resilience to all life’s challenges, a trait desired and appreciated by all. It could be said that years of gymnastics made me the person I am today. There are skills and abilities I am able to apply in all walks of life that were undoubtedly founded inside those four walls of the gym. And ofcourse, i’ll never forget the wins, the laughs and the friendships I made along the way.
What does my child need to bring to class?
They will need socks for on the trampoline and some water with them.
