Many of you have so many questions for us, especially as a new club. So we will answer as many as possible on this page.
How do I pay for Future Gymnastics Classes?
All classes at Future Gymnastics are paid for via monthly Direct Debit using our merchant GoCardless.
What should my child wear to classes?
For the first 3 sessions a leotard is not essential as your child decides if they want to continue with gymnastics. After this period a leotard for the girls is a must- have as t-shirts and baggy clothing can restrict movement. T-shirts are not acceptable as they will rise above their heads. Leggings or shorts are fine. For boys, a tighter top that will not rise above their head and shorts. Leotards are not essential for boys.
Are your classes insured?
Upon joining our club you will pay an annual membership to British Gymnastics. This ensures the children are insured in any British Gymnastics affiliated club and memberships are transferrable through clubs. This must be completed by yourself directly on the British Gymnastics website.
We also have block insurance to cover things such as fun days and camps, and the first few lessons your children try out.
What are your term dates?
We are open from September through to July with only 3 weeks off for the summer holidays. Upon signing up you will receive a copy of our annual term dates along with dates for when to pay
Are your coaches qualified?
Yes, all of our leading coaches are fully qualified and we have a number of assistant coaches who are learning how to become a leading coach, as well as assistants who are our younger volunteers in a different coloured t-shirt.
Can we join in half way through the term?
Yes, as long as there is space in our classes you can join in as soon as you register your interest.
If you are on the waiting list you will join in as soon as a space becomes available.
Can parents watch?
Yes. There is a designated viewing area for parents and family to watch during the sessions.
Can my child do a trial session before we commit?
Every childs first class will be a trial / assessment to ensure they are in the correct class. If they wish to continue with Future Gymnastics this will count as their first class of the term and be included in the fees.
If your child decides not to continue with Future Gymnastics there will be no charges.
Is there a notice period if we wish to leave?
Should you wish to leave Future Gymnastics we ask that you give us a minimum of 5 working days to cancel your direct debit. If your notice is in time to cancel your DD before the 15th of the month you’ll have the remaining 2 - 4 weeks of classes for that month remaining on your account. If your payment date is on the 1st but you hand in your notice between the 1st & 15th of the month we will refund your payment which was made on the 1st and you will have 2 weeks left on your account. We do not offer any refunds for leaving unless payment was made on the 1st of the month and notice is given before the 15th. If you give notice after the 15th of the month you’ll have between 4 - 6 weeks remaining on your account as payment is for the following month. Please send us an email to with a reason for leaving and we will action your request immediately. Cancellations must be in writing via email.
Cancellations between 1st - 15th month = gymnast has the current month left of lessons Cancellatino between 15 - 31st month = gymnast has the following month left of lessons.
