Dress Code

Leotards or a close fitting shirt and shorts should be worn. If you wish to buy a leotard I recommend our club leotard (dark red) which can be purchased from Top Marks school uniform shop in Ilkley. Please note there is no pressure for you to buy a club leotard or indeed any leotard. Boys' leotard/vest and shorts can also be purchased from Top Marks.

Health and Safety

Whilst safety is the priority, like all sports gymnastics carries with it some risk. Please minimise the risk by ensuring the following;

  • Jewellery is not worn and hair is tied back.
  • Newly pierced ears or body parts should be covered with plasters.
  • Gymnasts should not come to class if they are ill or in recovery.
  • Food should not be consumed.
  • A named bottle of water should be brought to each class.

Class Structure, Content and Equipment

The class will always start with a group warm up, sometimes to music, then we break into smaller groups and focus on appropriate gymnastic skills. We always finish with a cool-down stretch. The equipment provided is suitable for children up to the age of 12. Mini versions of competition apparatus such as bars and beam are used which will give the same sensation but without the intimidation and risk of working at the full height.

Coaching Policy and Gymnast Behaviour

Gymnasts are expected to show good behaviour and discipline in each class and adhere to the club rules. The coach has a right to manage behaviour accordingly, such as giving a warning and asking a gymnast to sit out for a designated period if he/she is causing undue risk to his/herself or others. Parents and carers will always be informed at the end of the class.

We have a child protection policy which is available upon request. We also have a dedicated Welfare Officer to ensure that gymnasts, parents and coaches are happy.

In summary, our policy is to make it Firm, Fair and Fun!
