Rise Gymnastics at Places Leisure

Discover, explore, excel

When you watch gymnasts on the TV, usually at the Olympics, it can often feel a million miles away from anything we would ever try to do – or need to. But, did you know that the skills involved in gymnastics support many other sports and activities, as well as general life?

A highly motivating, well-structured gymnastics class can help lay the foundations for a healthy and active lifestyle. That foundation will not only help your child build strong and healthy bones, but increase flexibility, balance, coordination, and body strength as well as discipline, self-esteem, and social skills. Gymnastics also allows children the chance to think for themselves, stimulate their imagination, and solve problems in a safe and structured environment.

Showcasing gymnastics in a different way

At Places Leisure we are always looking to raise the profile of Gymnastics and work closely with British Gymnastics to increase participation on the Rise Gymnastics programmes that operate at our centres. Children of all ages and abilities have the power to shine with Rise Gymnastics.

Dave Marshall, Participation Director at British Gymnastics, said:

"Gymnastics provides a great start point for children to learn and develop physical foundation skills that can help with many other sports and physical activities in life. At British Gymnastics we’re pleased to work with partners like Places Leisure to provide our Rise Gymnastics programme creating quality gymnastics programmes that are fun, progressive and rewarding.”

Designed in consultation with the gymnastics community, the programme is structured into three distinct learning phases - Discover, Explore and Excel – and brings gymnasts on a progressive journey, from their first steps all the way through to advanced skills.

One programme. Three Phases.

Giving all gymnasts a fun, well-rounded experience from the very start. The programme is designed to take gymnasts on a journey, from their first steps into gymnastics all the way to advanced skills, competitions, festivals and beyond. Children of all ages and abilities have the power to shine with Rise Gymnastics. Phases include:
