Boys Squads (Mixed Ages)

We welcome boys and girls to all of our classes.

However, we also run boys squads, with a view to competing at high level competitions into the future.

These sessions focus on Team Gym, a discipline of gymnastics with an emphasis on togetherness and teamwork. The boys squads follow a Team Gym Lanyard Reward Scheme.

You don't need any experience to get started with Team Gym. You'll start by learning the basics of the 3 activities (floor, trampet and tumbling track). As you develop your skill and strength you'll work as part of a team to learn and perform amazing routines. If you want, you can enter your team into one of our competitions (open to any age range).

Scarlets (Mixed Ages)

This is a preparation class for the Ruthin and Denbigh Gymnastics Club and a period to complete their final award stage.

The club often invites Scarlets class members to support displays and events by Club Level gymnasts, as this provides an opportunity to inspire gymnasts and encourages them to advance towards Club Level.

The gymnasts receive an annual Attendance Rosette Award, and can take part in competitions and Team Displays.
