    Make Friends.Have Fun, Gain skills and confidence


    We are a small friendly Gymnastics club established in May 2017 based at Forest Moor School, Menwith Hill Road,Darley HG3 2RA just a few miles from Pateley Bridge and Harrogate. Due to some structural problems with these premises , we are temporarily operating from Nidderdale Leisure Centre in Pateley Bridge, and Harrogate Grammar school


    We cater for girls and boys from 4 to 16 from Nidderdale ,Harrogate, Wharfedale, Ripon and beyond. Many new starters don't know anyone and we help them to make friends .


    All gymnasts work through our rainbow awards scheme, learning skills over all pieces of apparatus- floor , 2 airtracks, trampette, competition size bars, beam and vault. Parents can track their child's progress via our app, and receive tips and instructional videos tailored to their child's next step

    .We are registered with British Gymnastics and have adopted all its policies and procedures.

    In accordance with best practice, parents are welcome to watch as many or as few sessions as they wish. There is ample free parking
