Gymnastics for All Programmes
Orchards 'Gymnastics for All' programme aims to offer children & adults a taste of a wide range of gymnastics activities from the more traditional artistic gymnastics on all the familiar apparatus to acrobatics, tumbling, trampette and freestyle gymnastics. Classes are fun based, encouraging participation, achievement and reward, bringing with it fitness, flexibility, strength and confidence.
Gymnasts work towards 'British Gymnastic' proficiency awards and our annual club championships competition.
We recognise the different requirements and desires of children of different ages and split our programme into 3 class types which follow a format aimed at ensuring appropriate content relevant to children's ages.

Classes last 55 Minutes and run on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 4 or 4.50pm starts and on Saturday mornings.

For ages 6 (School Year 2) to 13 years.
Classes last 55 minutes and run on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday various start times beginning 4pm and on Saturday mornings.
- 'My Club' For gymnasts aged 13 to 17 years.
Classes last 1 hour and 25 minutes and give teenage gymnasts an active role in the ownership of their gymnastic activity. MY Club encourages gymnasts to work with a coach to plan their own sessions, decide on what they would like to do and achieve and manage their own development.
