Learn to be a coach
Do you want to learn to be a coach? No previous experience needed. If you are interested and can spare some time to support the gymnasts, please speak to either Tracey or Steph.
Great news!!! Funding for the new floor has been a great success. We would like to thank you all for your support and help with fundraising. More information coming very soon!
Children’s progression at home
I am sure all parents must endure watching their favorite program on the TV whilst their child practices their gym moves. If you would like advice to help you child practice safely, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are always there to help.
We also have equipment for sale to aid their progression such as matts, handsets and split trainers. Please see Tracey for costs and availability.
General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
As most of you will be aware the General Data Protection Regulations came into force 25th May. Forms are being handed to all gymnasts for completion to ensure we are compliant with this new policy. Please make sure these are completed swiftly to ensure all the information we have for your child is accurate and up to date.

We have attended a few competitions lately and in NBCG style we have brought home a fantastic haul of medals. In May we competed in Milton Keynes and our gymnasts earned a total of 42 medals with 2 gymnasts winning “Gold” overall.
We also competed at Wigan with 19 gymnasts winning overall Gold and countless medals. Well done to all who competed on behalf of the club.
