Both girls and boys are welcomed in all of our classes. As gymnasts progress towards more advanced sessions, they may be placed in specific gender groups to ensure that the training and equipment used makes the most of their time in the gym, thereby helping them to continually develop and learn.
Our Class Timetable
At Park Wrekin, we believe that success should be recognised and celebrated. All our Pre-school, Beginner and Recreational gymnasts work towards the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and Rosettes.
The Pre-School Gymnastics Award Scheme has been developed for children from 3 years of age and focuses on the development of physical literacy and movement skills. Children learn the three fundamental building blocks of movement – Action, Balance and Coordination, with a range of 40 different activities to choose from. The scheme introduces children to physical activity in a fun, yet structured, environment so that they can safely learn and experiment action, balance and coordination activities. Badges may be purchased to reward successful completion.
The Core Proficiency Gymnastics Award scheme follows on from Pre- School for Beginners and children aged 5 years & upwards. The scheme assists in the progressive development of core skills such as balance, strength, flexibility and co-ordination and incorporates compulsory pulse raising activities. There are 10 types of activity and 8 levels of attainment. Participants can choose from a selection of 80 activities to develop core skills. A comprehensive resource pack underpins the successful delivery of the scheme – with 40 work cards presented on DVD.
The Advanced Proficiency Gymnastics Award scheme is for children aged 11 years & upwards. It assists in the development of Core fitness (strength, power, flexibility, co-ordination) and gymnastics skills for the coaching of more advanced skills. The scheme offers a range of activities including Fitness, Floor, Vault & Rebound, Apparatus, Pairs & Groups, Hand Held Apparatus and Dance & Aerobics.
