Junior Gymnastics Classes

Gymnastics is a fun, exciting sport that can help children build self-confidence and encourage them to be disciplined. By learning gymnastics, children can push themselves beyond their comfort zones and develop their movement, balance, flexibility and strength skills.

Our gymnastics classes use various equipment such as boxes, bars, and beams, and we will ensure your child’s safety by only employing coaches who have been certified by British Gymnastics and have undergone a DBS check. We offer three types of junior gymnastic classes for children aged 4 and above, held weekly at Failsworth Sports Centre in Oldham. Please continue reading below to find out more.

In addition to our junior classes, we provide a new Gym Mini class for children aged 2-4 years, every Tuesday. Visit our Gym Mini’s page here for more information.

Gymnastics Classes FAQ’s

Are your coaches qualified and DBS checked?

Our coaches possess a recognised qualification from British Gymnastics and have undergone a DBS check.


What should my child wear in class?

  • Your child should wear comfortable clothing such as shorts, a t-shirt, or a leotard. Long hair must be tied back, and all jewellery must be removed before class.
  • Children need to have bare feet when taking part in classes.


Will I need to stay with my child during the class?

  • If your child is under 7 years old, we require a parent or guardian to stay in the room during class. 
  • For children aged 8 years and above, parents or guardians are welcome to use the facilities at the centre or go off-site. However, please ensure we have an up-to-date contact number in case of an emergency.
  • If you choose to use the facilities or go off site, you must be back to collect your child on time from the gymnastics class.


Do we receive any kind of written report or feedback?

There are no written progress reports available. Please speak with the gymnastics coach for updates on your child’s development.


Will my child achieve awards?

Your child can achieve 10 awards as they progress through our gymnastic classes. The awarding grades start from level 1 and progress up to level 10. Each level consists of ten skills, and once your child has passed all ten skills, they can purchase a badge and a certificate to celebrate their achievement. The skills will become more challenging as they move up to the next award.

How do you assess when children are ready to move into a different class?

When a space opens in a class, a child will be selected to move up based on age and ability.

Will my child attend competitions?

We currently do not attend any gymnastics competitions.

How can I make payments?

Payments are to be made monthly by direct debit. Any other amounts due can be paid at reception or by calling our contact team.
