British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards Scheme

The British Gymnastics proficiency award scheme has been designed to provide a nationwide personal incentive for all gymnasts.

All schemes are progressive in structure and are easy to administer. All coaches are fully qualified to British Gymnastics standards and work set guidelines to enable them help all participants reach their potential, whilst having fun at the same time!

Lessons are based on the concept of completing a number of moves from each level before progressing to the next.  Each level has a badge and certificate with the specific level design on it.

On completion of each level the participant is able to purchase the badge and certificate, level 8 to 1, from reception.

Gymnastics sessions

We have entered into a partnership with Wakefield Gymnastic Club to get children into gymnastics.

Gymnastics sessions are provided by fully qualified coaches and are available at Thornes Park Stadium (in partnership with Wakefield Gymnastics Club)
