Gymnastics

A fantastic opportunity to get a weeks worth of top gymnastics tuition.

Our gymnastics coaches have been teaching for five years at recreational and club level and competing at international level. This week will help prepare children for the next step, whether that is new skills or competitions and higher level gymnastics. It is a fantastic platform to spring off, whether you’re a beginner or a club competitor.

The Excel gymnastics week will be held in the St George’s Gymnastics hall on site at Excel. Participants will be spit into two groups aged 6-9yrs and 10-15yrs.

The younger group will follow the typical day timetable below, while the older group join the All Sports Camp for sports sessions. They will then swap over at lunchtime.

Each group will have a minimum of 2.5hrs gymnastics every day. The All Sports camp will have sports sessions, team events and film making that make Excel such a great camp. The price is inclusive of the All Sports summer camp.

All equipment is provided but you are welcome to bring your own specialist equipment if you prefer.

Wear clothing suitable for the season and a full active day eg shorts and tracksuit bottoms, trainers, fleece and a waterproof. We like to get outside as much as possible.

Due to allergies Excel does not provide food. Bring snacks and a packed lunch full of nutritous food fit for a full, active day. Sweets are not a good source of energy! St George's often provide a snack at the end of the day but this will be given after sign out, to allow you to decide if it is suitable.

Bring a refillable water bottle. Water is available at the water fountains for refills.

If you need to bring medicine you will be asked to fill out a form at the start of the week and this will be kept stored for you in case it is required. This can be stored in a fridge if required.

Please do not bring ipads, tablets or telephones. If you do need a telephone, you will be asked to hand it in at the start of the day. This is to protect the taking of images of children.
