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.

Club Joining Fee – one-off payment
At the Robert Clack venue we do not ask that you pay for a term up front. Fees can be paid on a sessional basis but are payable even if your child does not attend a session. We do ask for a ‘joining fee’ when your child begins the club. Gymnasts that do not attend training for two sessions without prior notice will be removed from the class register and their space filled with a gymnast from the waiting list.
Annual Membership Fee (British, London & Catleaps Gymnastics)
The compulsory British Gymnastics and London 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 Summer Term classes (September) start. There is a £8 annual fee for Catleaps Gymnastics, which includes the fee for London Gymnastics.
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 Summer Term classes (September). At present for gymnasts it is £17.00 per year (£11.00 for preschool).
The club affiliates to the regional branch of our National Governing body. Being a member of London Gymnastics allows Catleaps gymnasts the opportunity to participate in regional competitions. It also gives us a discount on the price of coaching courses. 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 London Gymnastics is included within the Catleaps fee and runs on an annual cycle.
If two or more siblings are attending classes, a 10% discount will be given to each child’s fees. Note that this is applicable to siblings only and doesn’t include extended family e.g. cousins.
