One of the greatest things a parent or carer can do
for their child is to find a sport/activity they can enjoy. It helps keep them healthy, gives them goals, promotes self-confidence, and teaches self-control and teamwork. Some children have a passion for sport as soon as they can walk; others take a little longer to find their sport. From gymnastics to football to swimming, our vast and varied range of junior coaching and courses are here to help as many children as possible find their sport. If we can develop their talent, that’s great. If we can also teach them the pleasure of doing sport, that’s even better.
As well as being a challenging and rewarding discipline in its own right, gymnastics is known for being beneficial for a range of other sports developing strength, balance, coordination and fitness.
Girls and boys aged from 3 upwards are welcome to coached Gymnastics sessions which are now run by Helen Stansfield from Pendle Gymnastics and held at Pendle Leisure Centre. All children start at General level, where they master the basics of floor, beam and vaulting skills. There is also opportunity to develop skills on the parallel bars. All children receive progress cards, and Helen will let you know when he / she is ready to progress to a higher class. Some children will be invited to move onto a Development class, and may be able to take part in competitions.
To enquire about taking part in Junior Gymnastics, please contact Pendle Leisure Centre and ask for Helen Stansfield's contact details.
The acrobatics involved in trampolining make it a spectacular sport that should only be delivered safely by qualified instructors.
For children who like to be airborne, we have Trampolining classes. These can deliver the same health and well-being benefits as Gymnastics: balance, coordination, cardiovascular fitness and self-confidence. Because toddlers and bouncing are such a natural combination, we start our Trampolining courses young: with our Pre-School (3 - 5 years) courses. From age 5 upwards, children can come to our General Trampolining classes. All children receive progress cards and will work towards an increasing level of competency which will be rewarded through a badge scheme.
Learn the basics of football including passing, control, heading, dribbling and shooting with a 10 week football course. Available for children from the age of 3 years, football is a fun way for your child to stay active. Courses are available for complete beginners as well as the more advanced.
