We know how popular gymnastics is with kids, but most schools simply don’t have the expertise to offer it. That’s why Premier is on a mission to give every child the chance to try gymnastics in their very own school.
We’ve partnered up with British Gymnastics to become their only nationwide Primary school delivery partner. Our sessions can be held in any sports hall – our highly trained coaches don’t even need any fancy equipment to deliver fun, active and safe sessions.
It’s easy to understand why there’s so much interest in gymnastics. As a ‘foundation sport’, gymnastics uses strength, stability, flexibility, coordination and balance and has been shown to improve attention span.
It’s all about teaching children the fundamental movement skills they need to lead a physically active and healthy life, full of sport and recreation. Its positive impact, physically and psychologically, is life-long, which is why it’s particularly appealing for head teachers to offer.
Through the games and activities on our courses, the children can work towards their Core Proficiency Awards, with British Gymnastics’ ‘Jump Into Gymnastics’ lesson plan. Our courses are held before and after school hours, as well as during the holidays. If your school isn’t running these courses already, be sure to nominate them using the form on this page.
“The popularity of gymnastics in the UK continues to grow and demand to take part in gymnastics currently outweighs supply. We know this partnership will have a positive impact benefitting young people and help to bridge the gap between demand and supply.”
