We are a new club in the West end of Paisley in the old St Mirren Social Club, 11 Knox St.
Ideally situated for public transport and we have our own parking to the side of the building.
The club has been formed by Hazel Watt, an ex squad gymnast who has been coaching in and around the Renfrewshire area since 2001, feeling it is a good time to provide a much needed sport specific hall within the area creating more opportunity for children and adults alike to take part in a fun and exciting sport.
As this is a new club opening we will be primarily starting with the recreational/pre-school/adult sections to begin with. Once this has settled down and we identify gymnasts who are willing to work hard towards competing individually(artistic or tumble), as a group (acro) or for the pure enjoyment and team spirit in the display group then the hard work will really begin for these groups.
The competition groups will start off with local comps against other clubs working at beginner’s level and progressing to intermediate. After that it will be development and compulsory comps looking towards having gymnasts in regional and national squads in the long term future of the club.
The display groups will choose which displays they would like to take part in and will work at putting routines together, once the displays are done then it will be time to look at gaining new moves or making up a new routine for the next one.
On offer in the club will be:
1) Pre-school gymnastics (from as soon as they can walk)
2) Recreational gymnastics
4) Competitive artistic gymnastics
5) Sport acro gymnastics
7) Adult gymnastics (16 years +)
8) Display group (Child and Adult)
