WELCOME TO SALTNEY GYMNASTICS CLUB
Saltney Gym Club was founded in 1996 by Denise Bayley, the Head Coach of the Club and is run as a voluntary organisation by Denise and Debbie Lavender, Deputy Head Coach.
Saltney Gymnastics Club is affiliated to both Welsh and British Gymnastics.
In 2007 we were appointed High Performance Centre for Wales and as such all of the Welsh Acrobatic Squad training is run out of our facility.
We run classes from the age of 3 upwards, from Beginners to Elite, over 7 days a week.
Our beginners have the opportunity to participate in the British Gymnastics Award Scheme and for our other gymnasts, from across all of our classes we host and/or participate in a variety of competitions ranging from in house, inter club, regional and national levels so that everybody gets the opportunity to compete if they wish.
All of our coaches are volunteers, and donate their time for free, some in excess of 30hrs a week.
Saltney Gym club has an established “Parents and Coaches Committee” which provides fantastic support helping with the running of the club, as well as fundraising activities, which we rely on heavily to keep the facility running.
We also have dedicated Club Welfare officers in place who are fully trained in safeguarding and protecting children.
Saltney Gymnastics Club to date has produced no less than 30 British Champions and National and International levels, and the club is now the most prominent and successful in Wales. We have been invited to attend trials for the British squad as well as trials for the world championships.
Our club has represented Wales on numerous occasions in countries such as USA, Belgium, France, Ireland, Switzerland, Portugal, Bulgaria and Poland. We also have a large number of our gymnasts in both the Junior and Senior Welsh Squad.
