Why learn at Better?
Here at Better, we teach gymnastics to over 9,500 children every week. Our popular lessons and courses provide every child with the chance to learn new gymnastics skills while having fun. We use a wide range equipment and a teaching plan that has been designed so children learn a wide variety of skills.
We all know that children are very energetic and want to flip and somersault, so we teach them the fundamental skills that they can progress onto the more challenging moves.
We have six levels within the Better Gymnastics syllabus: Preschool, Fundamental, Preparation, Novice, Intermediate and advance. The introductory levels - Preschool, Fundamental, Preparation - focus on basic skills and techniques. Once complete, children can then begin the more challenging levels - Novice, Intermediate and Advance.
Although the aim is to help each child achieve a number of skills at each level before moving on to the next, we also teach them hundreds of other skills within gymnastics to keep the lessons different and fun.
Our team of qualified, enthusiastic and passionate gymnastics coaches share the desire to encourage as many children as possible to take part in and enjoy gymnastics.
We have partnered with the national governing body for gymnastics, British Gymnastics. Our mutual support will help us achieve shared goals and outcomes – foundation movements and healthy, active children. As a partner of British Gymnastics, we have access to gymnastics experts to support and guide the programme.
This means that all our lessons and courses come with the following benefits:
- Quality assurance
- British Gymnastics qualified coaches
- Engaging British Gymnastics activity programmes
- Improved customer experience
- High standards of safeguarding, welfare and safety
