About us

Gymnastics, more than any other sport contains the qualities we admire most; strength, grace, courage, skill and excitement. The aim of our club is to provide opportunities for children wishing to experience this thrilling and beautiful sport. For some it will be a stepping stone to competitive gymnastics but for most it will be a fun way to gain all-round fitness, the benefits of which will last long into adulthood. We have been offering classes for over 7 years in the Ilkley area and have had a waiting list for all that time!

Our coaches and junior helpers are suitability experienced and qualified or trained to teach gymnastics. Coaches have been screened by the Criminal Records Bureau to confirm their suitability to work with children. A qualified first aider is also present at each class.

We are registered with British Gymnastics and we are committed to following the recommended policies to ensure the welfare and development of all gymnasts. We have a child protection policy which is available upon request. We also have 3 dedicated Welfare Officers to ensure that gymnasts, parents and coaches are happy. Members, coaches and parents/carers are asked to follow our codes of conduct which are displayed on our notice board.

As well as our recreational classes we participate in competitive acrobatics and have competed at regional, national and international level.
