Exeter GC is a Registered Charity (294294) and is managed by the Coaching Director Mike Euridge (EOGC) and staffed by qualified paid and voluntary coaches who are supported by the voluntary committee of Trustees elected at the AGM each November.
Exeter Gymnastics Club has a proud pedigree of achievement at county, regional, national and even international level. Former and current members have competed successfully at the Commonwealth Games, World Student Games, Internationals and annual National Championships, in team and individual events. The coaching director is a member of the National Coaching Panel and coached at girls and boy’s national squad training sessions and serves on the regional executive committee.
We provide a child centred, coach led programme and will endeavour to help your child develop to their optimum level of performance. Our coaches are all British Gymnastics qualified coaches at the appropriate level and have been screened for their suitability to work with children. A Welfare Officer has been appointed by the club to deal with any safety issues, a picture and the name of the present Welfare Officer is displayed on the Club notice board. Arrangements should be made to escort your child to and from training sessions and events. We would appreciate your child arriving on time for training and being collected promptly at the end of the session.
Training times allocated, and fees required are accessed via your LOVEADMIN members account, but if you have questions then please contact the coaching director or Club Administrator. All members must pay the annual Exeter Gymnastics Club membership and, in addition, are required to join the British Gymnastics membership and insurance scheme. This membership is joined via their website and payment made direct to British Gymnastics. Information on how to do this will be given to new members on joining and to all existing members when renewal is due.
The aim of the club is to provide a safe, effective and child friendly environment in which the members can participate in Pre-School, General and Artistic Gymnastics activities under the guidance of appropriately qualified coaches.
We operate an open philosophy and welcome the support of parents or guardians. Wherever possible we will enable you to observe training sessions provided that it does not contravene our Health and Safety Regulations. There are two annual open weeks for parents to watch recreational sessions. We also encourage and value parental involvement in the club.
The members of the club are organised into groups according to their age, gender, ability, experience and individual needs and coaches will be pleased to discuss the training programmes and your child’s needs with you. You can view our Club Group Stages for more information on the stages and levels available at the club.
