May Half Term Camps

This year we have decided to try something new in our May half-term, we will be running specific workshops in the afternoons, aimed at children aged 6+. These workshops are for children looking to improve certain skills or try a new area of gymnastics for example Freestyle.


Tumbling Workshop

Tuesday 28th May

1pm – 3.30pm

Come along to our Tumbling workshop to work on skills such as cartwheels, roundoffs, flick preparations, with our specialist qualified coaches. Gymnasts from our Tumbling squad will be on hand to show you some of their skills and help along within the workshop too. For those who are beginners in tumbling the focus will be on the initial preparations and body shapes, whilst using the fast track and trampoline. Experienced gymnasts will be given the opportunity to fine-tune what they have already learned, and potentially start to link some tumbling skills together.


Acrobatics Workshop

Wednesday 29th May

1pm – 3.30pm

Book onto our Acrobatics workshop, where gymnasts will have the opportunity to work in pairs and groups to learn acrobatic partner moves and balances.

If you enjoy jumping and flying this is the workshop for you – gymnasts will learn different jump shapes and vaults, and well as some may start learning progressions for somersaults.
