We operate a large recreational gymnastics programme from walking to 15 years, across 10 of our leisure centres. Classes use specialist apparatus and follow a programme of badge work and local competitions. We work in close partnership with British Gymnastics to ensure the highest standards within our programme.

Gymnastics- Preschool

These classes are split into two different types; Gyminis (Adult & Child), and Gymikins (Independent), and are available at ArmleyFearnvilleHolt ParkKirkstallMorley, and Rothwell leisure centres. Classes involve a combination of exploratory play and structured activities to develop both gross and fine motor skills, as well as social interaction and communication. Each class has specialist pre-school gymnastics apparatus and soft play equipment.​ For days/ times/ prices and availability please contact the relevant centre for information.
