Spiral Gymnastics Club offers a wide range of classes for all ages and abilities. Below is an overview of our term time classes currently available for new and budding gymnasts. Our term time classes are open to all gymnasts and we welcome new members at any point in the year. Please find below some essential information regarding membership and insurance fees, registration details and class certificates and awards.
Class Certificates and Awards:
All of our term time classes work towards certificates and awards. Gymnasts aged 4 years and over work towards their Core Proficiency Gymnastics Awards Scheme which is provided through British Gymnastics. The scheme assists in the progressive development of core skills such as balance, strength, flexibility and co-ordination and incorporates compulsory pulse raising activities. There are 10 types of activity and 8 levels of attainment.
We also operate our own in-house achievement certificates. These are the Spiral Gems Achievement Certificates and cover a wide range of gymnastics skills as well as rewarding effort, listening and social skills within all the classes.
We operate Core Proficiency Gymnastics Award testing days outside of the weekly classes to make more effective use of the time and space. Please find the full details regarding the Proficiency Awards Testing under our dates and events section of the website.
Registration and Fees Payment:
Fees for all of our term time classes are payable in advance at the start of each term. There is the option to pay the term fees in two payments, each due at the start of each half term. This will incur a £5.00 administration fee payable along with the first half term payment.
We accept cash/cheque payments on site and there is the option to make online bank payments for term time fees. Bank details are available on request.
All gymnasts (or their parents!) need to complete a registration form on joining which includes the gymnast’s personal details, parent/guardian contact details and any medical conditions or information.
British Gymnastics Insurance and Spiral Gymnastics Club Membership is essential for all members and details are outlined below.
British Gymnastics Insurance and Spiral Gymnastics Club Membership:
All gymnasts joining the club need have British Gymnastics (BG) Insurance and Spiral Gymnastics Club Membership. These payments are due at the end of September each year but are payable even when joining at another time in the year.
Spiral Gymnastics Club Membership includes Spiral Gems certificates, discounted entry to holiday camps/club events/birthday party bookings and their Regional Affiliation Fee. This payment is £20 on joining in September and is reduced for gymnasts joining later in the year.
Parents need to ensure their child has British Gymnastics insurance and this is completed directly through the British Gymnastics website. British Gymnastics is the National Governing Body for gymnastics in the UK. This cover provides insurance cover as well as discounts and other member benefits. If parents do not compete their child’s insurance online, they will not be able to take part in the class as they will not be insured.
To complete the process online British Gymnastics will ask you to enter some personal details to create a member account. You will also need to confirm the name of the gymnastics club “Spiral Gymnastics Club” and we are a “Women’s Artistic Gymnastics” club. There are three levels of cover; Pre-School, Gymnast or Competitive Gymnast. You will then need to pay British Gymnastics directly for the membership selected.
