Preschool 

A stimulating play environment that helps children towards the sporting pathway and being active for life. It builds confidence, strength, improves balance and coordination. Children will follow the Dumfries and Galloway Preschool gymnastics award scheme and will be awarded certificates to show their progress through the scheme.

Little Sparklers, 18 months to 3 years

The first step on the ladder to our gymnastics journey. Children must be accompanied by an adult on a 1:1 ratio.  They progress through the scheme and move up on to the Gymstars class when they are 3 years old.

Gymstars, 3 to 5 years

The children work independently with a focus towards learning key skills and shapes. They graduate to the DG club gymnastics award scheme when they start primary school.

School age

For children of all abilities to work through and complete the Dumfries and Galloway gymnastics Award scheme. The scheme tracks progress through the 8 levels and encourages children to learn new skills building their self-confidence and making new friends as they go. They will be rewarded for passing each level with a certificate.

Boys only

This class is for boys of all abilities to work through and complete the Dumfries and Galloway gymnastics Award scheme. The scheme tracks progress through the 8 levels and encourages children to learn new skills building their self-confidence and making new friends as they go. They will be rewarded for passing each level  with a certificate.

Team gym

This class offers a pathway for children who have completed the core awards scheme and wish to stay in the sport but do something a bit different. It is an exciting discipline where gymnasts will concentrate on trampette, vault, floor dance/tumble. They will work in groups and learn group floor displays to music, so if you are a team player then this is the class for you (spaces are limited).

Adult gymnastics

A structured gymnastics class suitable for all abilities from beginners to former gymnasts. Coaches will lead a warm up and stretch followed by some apparatus work. This class is a fun way to improve your balance coordination, flexibility and overall fitness. Coaches will provide safe progressions for your ability level and provide help and advice with skills you would like to master.

Development squad

Entry is by assessment. Coaches will select gymnasts that they feel have the potential to improve further to attend an assessment. This class is a 2-hour class and focuses on skill development and will prepare them for entry in to the Solway Gymnastics Club.

Competitive

Solway Gymnastics Club. Entry is through the development squad and by assessment. This club prepares gymnasts to compete in national floor and vault competitions as well as developing their floor and vault skills. They train for 4 hours a week.
