Competitive Gymnastics
At the City of Lancaster

The music swells. You climb onto your partner’s shoulders and take a deep breath. The next thing you know you’re flying through the air, spinning and twisting. You can almost feel the crowd gasp…

Competitive acrobatic gymnastics is all about working as a team to pull off the most spectacular balances and throws. By learning and competing as a pair or group, you can have a lot of fun developing your skills, strength and co-ordination. What better way to release your inner performer?

OUR COMPETITIVE PROGRAMME

Gymnasts begin by getting to grips with the basics of gymnastics. The somersaults, twists and turns – plus a few moves you can only perform in teams of two or more. As you build your strength and technique and progress through sessions based on age and ability, you’ll become part of a team and start creating show-stopping routines that you can perform together.


Gymnasts take part at local, regional and international competitions. Training sessions take place two to three times a week across two venues; our new state of the art City of Lancaster Gymnastics Centre and the University of Cumbria Sports Complex. Our competitive gymnastics programme includes:

Acrobatic Gymnastics (Ages 5-18 years)

From 5 years old and up, our competitive programme involves training with a mix of choreography, strength, flexibility and complex acrobatic skills. Gymnasts are likely to start their journey with us in the recreational programme – either pre-school or recreational sessions and are then selected to be introduced into a competitive environment. Acrobatics is a mix of choreography and complex acrobatic skills performed in partnership to music on a 12 x 12 metre floor area. Taking part in acrobatic gymnastics builds agility, strength, flexibility and balance. Part of the world games, it also has its own dedicated world championships. Balance, tempo and combined routines are performed in competition giving gymnasts the chance to demonstrate their own artistry alongside balance work, pitching and catching, somersaults and twisting acrobatics. Disciplines include: men’s pair, women’s pair, mixed pair, women’s trio and men’s four. Competitive gymnasts compete following the rules of the FIG (Federation of International Gymnastics).

Dance Classes

Centred around our competitive programme, dance classes are delivered which involve a dance-led curriculum enhanced by gymnastics elements, movements and hand apparatus work - focusing on artistic presentation and aesthetics of gymnastics rather than on the sports code of points and requirements. Gymnasts learn how to express themselves to music, to dance and perform in productions, festivals and displays.
