Welsh Gymnastics’ goal is to get even more members and participants enjoying quality gymnastics. We understand the importance in helping create opportunities for children and young people to access gymnastics and our work with leisure centres and schools across Wales is vital to this. We aim to provide our schools and leisure partners the necessary support and resources to enable them to let gymnastics thrive within their setting.

Leisure Partnership Work

The Leisure Centre Programme is designed to enable, encourage and actively support Leisure Services to register their recreational gymnastic programmes with British & Welsh Gymnastics. Working in partnership, British & Welsh Gymnastics aims to add significant value to the programmes of leisure providers through two clear shared aims:

  1. Raising standards of provision

Promoting and recommending appropriate policies, procedures, guidelines and resources. Providing examples, case studies and up-to-date information regarding minimum, best, and market leading practice.

  1. Increasing participation

Facilitating CPD and coach education needs. Support with marketing including BG branded promotional material. Offering and developing practical tool kits aimed at maximising resources such as time, space and coaches.

School Partnership Work

Covid Update

For the 2020 – 2021 academic year all gymnastics schools’ events and competitions have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Welsh Gymnastics and Welsh Schools wanted to safeguard the longevity and sustainability of the schools’ programme and investigated other ways to link and support schools.

Welsh Gymnastics and Welsh Schools will be providing schools with monthly packs which contain various gymnastics-based activities that teachers can utilise within their lesson plans. Activities included are;

  • A classroom-based activity
  • A physical activity card focusing on the fundamentals of gymnastics
  • A weekly challenge for pupils to complete

These packs are sent to schools via email along with downloadable certificates for teachers to provide to their pupils. If you would like to be added to the schools contact list please email development@welshgymnastics.org
