Gymnastics classes the whole community can enjoy…………..At the Dorchester YMCA Gymnastics club we run our classes in line with the academic school year. Our purpose built facility enables us to offer classes to all ages, abilities or disabilities and is run with a concept of Christian based values to support, assist and encourage others whatever their background. All classes are prepared by our qualified coaches and consist of warming up the muscle groups and cardiovascular system whilst preparing the mind for the session ahead. A stretch will then follow to encourage flexibility. Strength and stamina work will also be included within the program. This essential preparation is to enable the safe learning of gymnastics skills within the session. Skills are taught dependent on the age and ability of the gymnast. Every member is expected to listen, learn and participate in a positive manner to comply with safety guidelines and in turn gain maximum benefit from each session.The Dorchester YMCA Gymnastics Club offers a variety of disciplines. The Red triangle of the YMCA is the underlying thread representing the gymnastics for all discipline. This is a recreational style of gymnastics taught to enable the gymnast to learn the basics of a variety of disciplines. The classes are designed to be fun whilst learning new skills, they are able to engage with their friends and also make new ones.
