Welsh Gymnastics

Club of the Year 2017

IMPORTANT UPDATE

01.05.21

Thank you all for your support over the last year. It has been a challenging time for everyone. Here at Bangor Gymnastics Club we have restructured to ensure that our members continue to receive the best possible experience with us. 

 

We have created a new recreational and competitive structure to give the wider community an opportunity to join our club and be a part of the sport. To read more about this, please visit our Pre-School and Recreational section on our website.

 

An online booking system will now be used for the Pre-School and Recreational gymnasts to book on for a term through Love Admin. Existing members will be given priority to select their desired class and time on return. We hope that this will support our members to give you a choice on what works best for your family. The online booking system will soon be live. Existing members will be notified so please keep an eye out on your emails and Facebook page. 

 

Competitive Recreational gymnasts will be contacted over the next week by a member of staff with your new training day and time. 

 

WA & MA gymnasts will also receive an email with your new training days and times in the next few days. 

 

Further information on our Inclusive and Broga Bach sessions will be communicated through our Facebook page in due course. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you all back soon💙

 

Bangor Gymnastics Club are committed to providing gymnastics and fitness classes to all, regardless of your ability and age. Our aim is to help you achieve your potential in a fun and safe environment.

This fun focused session is there to teach gymnasts the foundation skills to start their gymnastics journey. This session is for the children who are starting their gymnastics journey, have moved up from our pre-school program or gymnasts who have participated in our recreational program previously. Gymnasts will be grouped with other gymnasts their age and use a range of equipment within our fantastic purpose-built facility. Gymnasts in this session will work towards completing the BGC Badge Program as well as getting an opportunity to compete in our Club Championships. These groups will be mixed boys and girls.

Teen Gym. Age 13+

This session is the final step within our recreational gymnastics program and aims to keep gymnasts in the sport by being more gymnast lead than our other sessions.

Gymnasts will still have the opportunity to work through the Club Badge system and compete in the Club Championships.

inclusive

At Bangor Gymnastics Club, we aim to include and accommodate everyone. We offer a range of Inclusive classes which focus on aiding children with disabilities so that they can enjoy the sport we love just as much as everyone else. We provide Inclusive sessions with a lower coach to gymnast ratio than our recreational sessions, in order to give the participants all the support they need in an environment which is comfortable for them.

We also provide Rebound Therapy classes, in which we utilise out trampoline and our state of the art hoist system. We believe we are the only gymnastics club this side of the Atlantic Ocean to offer a hoist system.

Our inclusive sessions are Pay As You Go, and cost £4.00 at the door, and our Rebound Therapy sessions are price on application. For more information please get in touch with the club.
