How do I join?
Please see our 'New Members - Registration' page for further details on how to join.
What kind of classes do you run?
Our recreational gymnastics allow gymnasts to develop their gymnastics skills in a fun, encouraging, non-competitive but challenging environment. They help children develop good co-ordination, self-confidence and discipline as well as strength, balance, flexibility and agility.
What do I wear?
Leotards can be worn. Alternatively gymnasts can wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings & t-shirt. Long hair must be tied back and jewellery is not allowed. Club leotards & hoodies can be purchased from the club but are not compulsory.
What should I bring?
All gymnasts should bring a clearly labelled bottle of water.
How long is the training?
Our training sessions are 1 hour long.
Where will I find training dates?
The term calendar is available on this website here.
How can I contact the club?
Most of our correspondence is through email. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are your coaches Garda Vetted?
Our coaches are Garda vetted and have attended Safeguarding training. For more information see our Safeguarding page
Will my child use all of our equipment?
Our sessions operate on a 2 week cycle and within that time children will be offered a full range of equipment. All gymnasts learn skills on Floor, Sprung Floor, Beam, Bars, Vault, Air Track and Trampette.
How will you let me know that fees are due?
By email. At Eccles Gymnastics we do all of our communication via email.
How can I find out how my child is doing?
You child's personal coach is the best person to speak to about this. Please let us know and we can arrange for you to speak to your child's coach at the next session.
Does Eccles Gymnastics have competitive squads? How can my child do competitions?
Our classes are predominantly recreational classes, and our main priority is to have children keeping fit and having fun no matter what their skill level. There are a limited number of development classes where children focus more on the development of strength, conditioning and skills.
Senior coaches within our recreational training sessions identify children who show a combination of strength, power, speed, agility, coordination, focus and willingness to learn. We do not select children based upon the skills they currently have. Children are assessed throughout the year for suitability for these groups.
If you child is not selected for a development group, we ask that your respect our coaches' experience. Gymnastics is a very challenging sport and while we would love to accommodate everybody, the space and time we have available to us is unfortunately very limited.
