Gymtots is our fabulous parent and toddler programme designed to help babies and toddlers develop sensory skills and use of muscles required for physical play, therefore preparing the framework for sport in later life.
From September 2016 Gymtots will only be available on a pre-paid basis, members must be booked into a specific class and pay for the term.

This class acts as a stepping stone between our traditional pre-school class and our 2.30 recreational gymnastics class. The idea is that children selected to take part in this class will work off the general class curriculum but in smaller groups than our 2.30 general classes. Childern aged 4 who haven’t started school but are no longer challenged enough by our Pre-school Class will be selected for the Bridging Class.

Recreational Gymnastics Classes (age 4-10)
Introduction to fundamental skills on bars, beam, vault and floor. At Arabian we ensure that all gymnasts remain challenged by providing a specific motivational event each term; Term 1 culminates in a Christmas Show, Term 2 culminates in annual grading, Term 3 culminates in a class competition.

Mixed Age Group Classes – while our preference would always be age appropriate classes, we realise that this may not be possible for those with siblings of varied ages, therefore we have created the following “mixed age group” classes.

This more intense level of gymnastics encourages the development of self-discipline, commitment and determination. Our squads compete at various regional and national competitions – just checkout our facebook page to keep up to date with their achievements and titles!

Both our elite gymnasts are part of the National Squad and are aspiring to compete in the Olympics.
