Freestyle gymnastics is a term adopted by British Gymnastics to describe a new and rapidly developing activity which also incorporates aspects of other popular activities, such as Parkour, Free running and Urban Gymnastics.
We offer a freestyle gymnastics class which provides the opportunity for participants to come along and learn or practice their skills in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with the general focus being on a wide range o acrobatic and vault work.
We place an emphasis on freedom, individuality and creativity with regards to the skills that each participant learns and performs.
Coaches are always on hand to provide advice and support throughout the session.
The classes include a structured warm up and cool down but participants are free to move between the various manned coaching stations as they so wish during the rest of the session.
Adults sessions run on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8.30pm and 10pm at the Basildon Sporting Village and are for those aged 16 and over.
And the junior sessions are on Wednesdays at the Basildon Sporting Village between 8.30pm-10 pm and are for those aged 11-18.
Booking in advance is advisable at £7 per session as places are limited.
