Wiltshire School of Gymnastics offer gymnastics classes for all abilities from Pre-school to international elite gymnasts.
Pre-school gymnastics comprises a number of different classes designed to introduce children to gymnastics. The emphasis is on fun and classes are offered for babies from 6 weeks to school age.
Once children are at school full time they can move into Recreational gymnastics classes. The structure of 'rec' classes allows the young gymnast to work through a series of badges from Badge 8 through to Badge 1.
Trampolining classes are also available starting from age 3.
