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.

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:
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.
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.
