GYMNASTICS

From January 2017 we will be launching a wide range of gymnastics courses for all ages and abilities in Newcastle Better Leisure Centres.  Sessions throughout the week are at Walker Activity Dome and West Denton Leisure Centre offering a great way for children to have fun while learning this exciting sport.

A free taster weekend wil be taking place in December:

  • Walker Activity Dome: 9.00am to 2.45pm Sunday 18th December
  • West Denton Leisure Centre: 9.00am to 4.30pm Saturday 17th December

Register your interest today at West Denton Leisure Centre 0191 4302910 or Walker Activity Dome 0191 2600506.

Children will be given the opportunity to work towards achievement levels within a structured programme as well as participating in fun displays and competitions.

When the course begins over 200 places will be available for children from as young as four years old, with plans in place to expand this to pre-school and adult sessions depending on interest.  Sessions will run for 50 weeks of the year and parents will be able to track their child’s progress through an online course management system which can be logged on to from home.  Investment in new equipment and fully qualified staff means there will be an improved provision running in both the East and West of the city, plus the creation of new coaching jobs.

We will initially be teaching recreational ‘all-round’ skills , but we hope that as we see children and adults advance we can develop additional sessions specialising in different areas.

Courses will begin in January 2017 with West Denton on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th January and Walker on Sunday 8th and Monday 9th January.  Enrolment can take place up to the start of the course, but parents will be encouraged to sign up during the taster weekend in December. 

If you would like any more information about the taster weekend, the new course in January or would be interested in pre-school drop in sessions from age 3 and above and sessions for adults aged 18+, then please contact Lesley.rutter@gll.org or contact your local centre for more information.
