Sandylands Sports Centre, Skipton, gymnastics


Due to the high demand for this sport we have formed a unique partnership with Sandylands Sports Centre to introduce a new basic and fun British Gymnastics (BG) leisure centre programme named ‘JUMP’.  From this initial start point the children will progress up to the main gym presently located at Skipton Academy when places become available.     

Craven Gymnastics are a small, friendly general / women’s artistic club operating as a non-profit making community organisation under the umbrella of British Gymnastics (BG); we were founded in 1973. All our coaches are fully qualified with mandatory police and safeguarding checks.  The Club is run by a team of devoted coaches who all have full time employment in various sectors of industry including the teaching profession.

The aim is to provide a fun but disciplined environment where every child can achieve success at any standard through practice and dedication; we will be operating the new ‘BG JUMP’ award scheme.

We have operated with a waiting list for the past 20 years. We would therefore ask for your consideration in informing us when a place is no longer required to allow us to offer it to another child. If notice is not received you will be invoiced for three weeks of the term.

We also have a dedicated Facebook page which we encourage you to join as we often use this to convey information to members.
