Recreational Gymnastics

North Cotswolds Gymnastics & Trampolining Academy is a dynamic environment where children can have fun, grow in confidence and progress through awards, displays and competitions.

We are a member of British Gymnastics placing our club as part of one of the most recognised gymnastics organisations in the Country. We have a variety of coaches and our level 2 coaches are highly skilled in Gymnastics and Trampolining.

Once your child has reached primary school age, they can start attending the recreational classes that NCGTA we offer. These are fun, dynamic sessions that are fast paced in a safe environment.

Within the session, your child will do floor work, bar, beam, vault, trampette and trampolining. We have small groups with no more than 6 in a group and we work towards BG badges in term 1 and 3.

There are different sessions during the week, covering different age ranges. We also have a specific Boys Gymnastics session, with a more dynamic pace. All of our sessions are run by enthusiastic and experience coaches, who love to help the children to develop. Take a look at the timetable on the main page to see when they take place.

PLEASE NOTE: To take part in the Recreational Gymnastics sessions,NCGTA require all children to be registered as a member of British Gymnastics. This is to give children full coverage for the activities in the gymnasium. This membership is for the whole year, and there are also some other wonderful benefits with this membership, including discounts at major attractions, discounts with IHG Hotels and more. Please visit their website to learn more.


Recreational Trampolining has taken off, with more and more people becoming interested in the sport. We like to have fun and learn new and exciting skills in a safe environment. With only 6 people in a class children will be getting the best out of their sessions each week.

The age range covered for all classes is 5 – 16 years. These run alongside school term times:

Monday   6:30 – 7:30pm

Thursday  4:00 – 5:00pm

Saturday  1:30 – 2:30pm

The Gymfants program caters for Pre-School children of 18 months – 4 years. These sessions are for children with or without their parents. We have fully qualified coaches that will greet you with a smile, so don’t worry if your child is nervous on leaving you.

Our coaches are very experienced and will turn your child’s frown upside down.The class is structured to our Gymnastics Award Scheme and also Pre-School discipline. Your child will understand the basics of Gymnastics, whilst still enjoying our pre-school shapes, foam pits, trampoline, beam, and vault and all the fun that comes with it.

DRESS CODE: For children’s safety and protection of the Gym equipment, we ask no buckles and zips, no jewellery/ watches, no denim (we advise leggings or tracksuit bottoms for comfort), no jackets to be worn in the gym, no tights/ skirts/ dresses, and long hair must be tied up.
