SGC gymnasts selected to represent GB for Junior European Championships 2017

Recreational Gymnastics

Following on from our Pre-School programme, Southampton Gymnastics Club's new recreational classes are split into 4 stages, based on school year of the children.

·         Recreational: Stage 1 – Year R only

·         Recreational: Stage 2 – Year 1-2

·         Recreational: Stage 3 – Year 3-6

·         Recreational: Stage 4 – Year 7-9

Recreational classes in stage 1 and 2, will be 45 minute classes, and stage 3 and 4, will be one hour classes. The sessions consists of basic fundamental gymnastics including learning skills on a variety of apparatus.

During each term, children will have the opportunity to work towards and achieve badges and certificates as part of the British Gymnastics Award Scheme. This will encourage children to progress further in gymnastics. Whilst children are participating, having fun and learning new skills, parents can either watch through our waiting area window or take a break to use time as they please.

We also run an Annual Gala (usually in December held at Southampton Guildhall) which children are invited to perform in and to show off what they have been learning throughout the year. For children in Stage 3 and 4, there may also be an opportunity for gymnasts to compete in our annual club competition.


At Southampton Gymnastics we offer the opportunity to those with unique abilities within Recreational Classes to move into our Advanced Boys class, Advanced Recreational class or Development Squad. If you feel you child has ability and would like them to trial, please contact us on 02380 529952 or email
