Pre School Gymnastics Classes
These classes are a great option for children between 18 months and four years old to get involved in gymnastics whether that be with an adult or independent. Our classes are run by qualified Pre School Coaches, these sessions are accompanied by a different book theme each block with accompanying music, hand apparatus and stations. These classes are predominantly midweek, daytime.
Under 5’s Foundation Classes
These classes teach the fundamentals of gymnastics, jumping, landing, using basic equipment and enjoying gymnastics in an independent class. These classes are predominantly, midweek evenings and Saturday morning.
This is where we start the gymnastics process, learning how to use a springboard, basic skills such as forwards and backwards rolls. Basic handstand shaping and working on some equipment, once the gymnasts are competent, confident and consistent in all of these areas the gymnasts will move up into a Beginners Class. These classes are predominantly, midweek evenings and Saturday morning.
This is our middle stage at High Green Gymnastics Academy, here we progress the gymnasts skills on floor and vault to more advanced basic skills such as; straight leg backward rolls, full handstand, cartwheels as well as teaching the gymnasts harder vaulting techniques incorporating arm circle vaults and progressing the gymnasts squat on and forward roll vault. The gymnasts are also introduced to basic skills on beam and bars here too. Once the gymnasts are competent, confident and consistent in all of these areas the gymnasts will move up into an Advanced Class. These classes are predominantly, midweek evenings and Saturday morning.
This is our top, most advanced session within our General Gymnastics programme. Here gymnasts progress all their Fundamental Gymnastics skills that have been learnt within our Foundation and Beginners Classes and work towards advanced skills such as but not limited to; walkovers, handsprings, flicks on floor, as well as further advanced skills on vault, beam and bars. Within these session our Floor and Vault Development Squad train too, showing progression of our gymnasts through our General Gymnastics programme. These classes are predominantly, midweek evenings and Saturday morning.

These sessions are held within our Advanced Classes as well but train additionally alongside our Women’s Artistic Development Squad, this is a new programme we started in 2022, gymnasts who are selected will be working progressively towards skills that may be needed for competition. These gymnasts will compete on the General Gymnastics route, typically this will be Floor and Vault.
