Dear parents,

Welcome to Notts Gymnastics Academy, a dedicated elite training facility, with success from county to an international level of performance.  Notts Gymnastics Academy is one of the most successful clubs in Great Britain, with a wealth of gymnasts achieving countless success at European, Commonwealth, World and Olympic Games. For a guide to help you understand the structure of the women’s section please download our handbook.

It is also important for you to understand that gymnastics is the fundamental preparation for all physical activities, to take to higher levels can be very difficult. It can be dangerous and gymnasts may sometimes suffer injuries. Every precaution is taken to avoid this. One important factor to avoid injury is to make sure the gymnast’s body is equipped to deal with the demands of the sport. To achieve this, the gymnast’s training programme will involve a high percentage of body conditioning and preparation. The gymnasts will be advised and encouraged to look after their general health by eating sensibly and getting enough rest. Outside the training environment these aspects must be taken seriously.  Competitive Gymnasts will also have moments when they feel low and moments of feeling high.  Please make yourself aware of this and do your best to help them through whatever situation arises. All the coaches are fully qualified and work to set guidelines and all want the best for every child in the club. Please see the handbook and this website for information on the competition pathway.

Each year gymnasts will need to affiliate to BG and East Midlands to be able to compete at the appropriate level and to be insured to train. Gymanst's are also required to pay monthly fees, information on this can be found in the training times section, our handbook and on the homepage.

Should you have any concerns they must be voiced through the correct channels:

  1. Firstly, please refer to your disciplines handbook, which will answer many of your questions. Secondly, please speak to your child’s coach before or after training, or via email, phone or text. If they are unavailable please contact your head coach. Please note during training hours the coaching team must not be disturbed.
  2. Should you have any queries regarding membership or fees please speak to our administrators on 01159 233 033.
  3. It is your responsibility to check notice boards on the ground floor for us to communicate with you or the online notice board on this website.
  4. Should you have any concerns regarding child welfare, please contact our Welfare Officer, who will be able to assist you in complete confidentiality.
  5. Each discipline has a fund raising committee and should you have any suggestions or wish to get involved please contact our fund raising secretary.
  6. Should you have any questions or queries on how our club works, please speak to our parent representatives. The parent representatives are your point of communication between the Board of Directors and you the parents. They are invited to meet with the directors once a quarter to find out the answer to any questions you may have and to update you on how the club is moving forward.
Thank You and Welcome to Notts Gymnastics Academy
