Recreational Gymnastics

The Wetherby Gymnastics club recreational classes are held at Bardsey School every Tuesday night from 5pm – 6:15pm in term time. 

All are welcome. Please contact via e-mail or telephone for a registration form and information booklet. Regular taster sessions are offered in order to keep the waiting list down to a minimum.

The intention of the recreational class is to teach the foundation skills of gymnastics and provide an assessment opportunity. Depending on talent and suitability higher level classes will then be offered. 

The cost is £65 a term. The classes are run with a high coach to gymnast ratio typically 1 coach to 4 gymnasts. This ensures gymnast individual needs are met and creates a strong learning environment enjoyed by all.

This apparatus below is used to teach a basic squat on vault.
