It is a non-profit making volunteer organisation that is run by a team of dedicated coaches. The club is affiliated to British Gymnastics and Lancashire County and all our coaches are qualified and have been DBA checked for their suitability to work with children . The club was one of the first clubs in the North West to be accredited “Gym Mark” which is the British Gymnastics mark of compliance with all policies and procedures relating to Equity and Child Protection. The gymnasts are organized into groups according to their age, ability and experience and the club endeavours to help develop their optimum level of performance – at present the club has girls across the ability spectrum from 4 year old ‘wagtails’ to competitive county level gymnasts.”
