Course description:

Premier are in partnership with British Gymnastics to increase the number of opportunities available to children wanting to take part in gymnastics and improve the quality of delivery. The partnership is focussed on extra-curricular and holiday club sessions, using a variety of gymnastics resources to ensure every child has a positive experience of the sport.

At a Premier gymnastics’ session, your child will develop skills and qualities using the British Gymnastics Core Proficiency Award Scheme, Jump into Gymnastics and the POW! Academy.

Core Proficiency is British Gymnastics’ leading skills-based award scheme. It enables children to earn rewards for mastering the core skills, such as handstands and cartwheels, as well as rolls, jumps and balances, across 8 levels. Children will develop their agility, balance and coordination, whilst working individually, with a partner and with a variety of apparatus, providing the foundation to more complex skills.

The Jump into Gymnastics programme consists of hundreds of different activities for your child to explore. Each session is fun and exciting and aims to improve fundamental movement patterns such as rolling, jumping, spinning and balancing in pairs/groups as well as independently. Activities are themed, and your child will learn to apply their movement with the use of small apparatus like ribbons, balls, hoops, as well as on large apparatus where they can explore swinging, travelling, rebound and balance.

POW! Academy is British Gymnastics’ brand-new programme in partnership with Cartoon Network and The Powerpuff Girls. Children will earn rewards for sequencing their core skills, such as handstands, jumps, rolls and balances; and applying their own creative twist to demonstrate the key qualities shared by gymnasts and The Powerpuff Girls. Is your child powerful, like villain Mojo Jojo or confident, like Buttercup?
