Gymnastics offers a huge array of benefits to everyone who takes part. Children love to develop new skills and enjoy following and learning new patterns of movement. It also helps to improve their motor development and build self confidence, whilst also being great fun! For older gymnasts, the sport provides the perfect background for graceful and artistic routines drawing on the skills of strength, balance and agility.
The Manchester Regional Gymnastics Centre offers a range of programmes for gymnasts of all ages and is home to City of Manchester Institute of Gymnastics Club, whilst Moss Side Leisure Centre has recently launched gymnastics sessions for 3-6 year olds, utilising the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards scheme.
