Gymnastics

YMCA Barry gymnastics programme follows the guidelines of the Welsh and British Gymnastics Associations and is also recognised by the British Olympic Association as a training venue for top level gymnasts.

The club offers a full children and youth programme from pre-school level up to boys and girls of competitive levels in both Artistic and Rhythmic gymnastics.

Fully Equipped Gym

How quickly a child will progress through the levels depends upon their age, strength, flexibility, body type and determination. Each child will be regularly reviewed by an ongoing evaluation program, which allows gymnasts to advance to the next level when they are ready.
Parents are encouraged to play an active part in the club and keep up to date with gymnasts progress.

Our fully equipped gymnasium includes, asymmetric bars, three high beams and one floor beam, two high rings, two sets of low rings, a pommel horse, two sets of parallel bars, a high bar and training bar over pit, a trampoline, a vault table and runway, a tumble track and sprung floor.

Our Goals

The goal of the YMCA is to help children and young people build self confidence, develop co-ordination and strength and create a positive self image. To help them achieve their highest potential, proper skill progressions are used and safety is our number one concern.

Every child and young person will receive lasting benefits from participation in this programme, whether or not he or she reaches advanced levels or uses their acquired skills in other sporting activities.
