At Better, we teach gymnastics to over 14,000 children every week.

Our lessons and courses are so popular because we provide every child the chance to learn new gymnastics skills whilst having fun and using a wide range of equipment.

We also use a teaching plan that has been designed to challenge the children to learn a wide range of skills.

We all know that children are very energetic and want to flip and somersault, and we pride ourselves in ensuring we teach them the fundamental skills so they can then progress onto the more challenging moves.

The courses run at Better leisure centres in Cardiff offer the following options:

  • Under 5s Gymnastics – your child’s first gymnastics session
  • Junior Gymnastics – from foundation to advanced

We have 6 levels with the Better Gymnastics syllabus including Preschool, Fundamental and Preparation levels.

These are our introductory levels that focus on the basic skills and techniques in gymnastics.

Upon completion of these levels the participant will move onto the more challenging levels including Novice, Intermediate and Advance levels.

Each level includes a number of skills that children have to achieve to move on to the next level. However, there are hundreds of other skills within gymnastics and we try to include all of these too!

We have a team of qualified, enthusiastic and passionate gymnastics coaches, who share the desire to encourage as many children as possible to take part in and enjoy gymnastics!

Courses take place at Eastern Leisure Centre, Fairwater Leisure Centre, Llanishen Leisure Centre, Penylan Library and Community Centre and Pentwyn Leisure Centre.
