FAQs

Do you have waiting lists?

Some of our classes have spaces available, but most have waiting lists. We invite children to start on Weeks 1 and 7 of each term. Use the Join Us page to add your child to the waiting list.

 

How are fees paid?

Our classes run termly, so you will be invoiced towards the end of each term for the following term. Fees can be paid by cash, cheque or BACS. There is an affiliation fee to WFGS and West Midlands Gymnastics each year, as well as British Gymnastics Membership that is required. These fees are due by October 1st each year.

What should my child wear to gymnastics?

Ideally, girls should wear a leotard. For the first few weeks, a tshirt with shorts/leggings is suffice. Please make sure that clothing doesn't have any zips/buckles on as these will scratch the equipment. We have kit available to purchase at the gym, or you can purchase leotards elsewhere. Hair should be tied back for all sessions, and no jewellery should be worn. If ears are newly pierced, they should be covered with plasters or zinc oxide tape (we do not provide this).

Can I watch my child at gymnastics?

We have a parents waiting area where you can stay during your child's class, as there is not enough space for parents to come into the gym. We have cameras in the gym which are connected to a tv in the parents waiting area so you are able to watch the class. 

What does my child need to bring?

Please ensure your child brings a drink to gym, and suitable clothes to put on after the session.

What will my child do at gymnastics?

Our recreational classes are structured so that the class warms up together, then splits into smaller groups with the class. We aim to have around 8 gymnasts per group. Each group goes on all 4 apparatus (vault, bars, beam and floor) each session, and work towards skills on the British Gymnastics Core Proficiency Badges and our own club proficiency awards. In the September- December term, we work towards our annual display.
