All Catleaps gymnasts start out in our two hour classes. Sessions are structured to include a pulse raising warm up, stretching and then apparatus based work. Coaches clearly plan their sessions to ensure that all gymnasts are stimulated mentally and physically, actively being involved in the development of their skills. Conditioning exercises allow the children to develop speed, stamina, strength and flexibility to allow them to perform repetitions of skills safely with ease and confidence. On vault, gymnasts perform a range of movements from developing skills on the springboard to more complex twisting vaults, a ‘stuck’ landing is always key! During floor sessions gymnasts will perform jumps, shapes, balances, locomotive and rotational skills with all classes carefully tailored to your child’s ability level. The higher level children perform choreographed floor routines with the girls using individually selected music, including leaps, jumps, spins and acrobatic elements.

Many gymnasts enjoy the classes so much they stay for longer hours. Any gymnast in the club has the option of increasing their training hours if there is space available.

Classes

The classes will be offered on a monthly basis, with payment due by the 2nd of the month. Generally, we will continue offering classes through school holidays, with the exception of Bank Holidays, the Summer holidays (optional Summer classes will be available to book into) and at Christmas (normally we have a short break for Christmas/New Year). Sometimes the school will be unavailable to book, which we’ll advise to you before the start block of lessons.

Annual Membership Fee (British Gymnastics & Catleaps Gymnastics)

The compulsory British Gymnastics and Catleaps Gymnastics fees are explained below. These are paid annually (September) by all gymnasts, coaches and officials. For members joining part way through the year these are still payable but then will fall in line with the rest of the club once the new September classes start.

Catleaps is proud to be a part of our National Governing Body: British Gymnastics. It is compulsory for all coaches and gymnasts to be a member of British Gymnastics to ensure safety. The membership year runs yearly and is an annual fee, due at the start of the September classes. At present for gymnasts it is £19.00 per year.

We are committed to ensuring our coaches are qualified to the highest level but also that they participate in updated training as regularly as possible. The fee to be a member of Catleaps Gymnastics is £8 and also runs on an annual cycle.

Sibling Discount

If two or more children from the same family are attending classes, a 10% discount will be given to the additional child’s class fees (no discount is applicable for the Membership Fee). The discount is valid for siblings only and doesn’t include extended family e.g. cousins.

Total Costs

Lessons are priced at £10 per gymnast per week for a 2-hour class (reduced to £9 per child per class for siblings). For the first class, the £10 session fee is due in advance. Prior to the 2nd class, you pay for the rest of the month, plus the £27 Annual Membership Fee.

For the 2nd month (and each month thereafter), you pay the class fees only. Following your initial payment of the annual membership fee (currently £27), this would become due again in September each year.

We offer a trial class, priced at £10 for a 2-hour session before committing to join – payment for the trial is due in advance.

We use Class4Kids for invoice processing, which can be paid with a debit or credit card.

Preschool Classes

Lessons are priced at £7 per gymnast per week for a 1-hour class (reduced to £6.30 per child per class for siblings). For the first class, the £7 session fee is due in advance. Prior to the 2nd class, you pay for the rest of the month, plus the £21 Preschool Annual Membership Fee.
