Mens Artistic

Erewash Valley Boys gymnastics has been established since 2001. It has grown in strength since moving to the new premises and is coached by a number of dedicated and keen coaches who are continually developing their skills in line with the requirements from British Gymnastics.

We offer gymnastics to males between the ages of 5 and 18 years.

The Men’s department is running at approx 80 gymnasts at current (2012) while being inspired to grow as our facilities do. Each of the groups gets to work on all the pieces of equipment with qualified Men’s Artistic coaches while also working with the other disciplines. Equipment includes:

  • Bars
  • Parallel – Bars
  • Pommels
  • Rings
  • Floor
  • Vault

The whole Men’s department follows a development plan which allows each individual gymnast to choose which pathway they want to go down but yet allowing them to jump from one to another as they change their mind!!! Please see development pathway page for further details

The training times offered to the recreational boys is 1hour 30 minutes. This is offered on a Saturday morning 9.30am to 11am – this is a male oly session where the club is exclusively available for mens artistic training. Other mixed sessions are available.

Boys who demonstrate the ability and enthusiasm for the sport now have an additional opportunity to train for 2 hours on a Tuesday (floor and tumbling only) and 2 hours on a Wednesday, as well as Saturday mornings until 12 midday.

Please note the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions are by invitation only.

We pride ourselves on giving every boy whatever their ability an opportunity to participate and have fun within in the sport of gymnastics. This is highlighted by the low drop out rate particularly from the older boys and recreational side. However we are also trying to coach those boys with ability to “be the best they can be”. Therefore our groups are organised in ability first, then age.
