An overview of the classes types available at Meridian Gymnastics.
Meridian offers recreational classes for both girls and boys of all ages. These are basic gymnastic classes in which vault, bars, beam,floor and trampette skills are introduced. We encourage the children to develop their talents, which in turn builds courage and self-confidence.
The Intermediate Class is for gymnasts who have moved on from recreational classes, showing potential and committed to training more hours to hopefully achieve their goals of competing. Prompt classes in proper club attire, like for the comp class.
Competition squads are for gymnasts who are dedicated to achieving their potential and competing. We provide a competitive route for gymnasts who have the physical and mental capabilities to perform within this environment and wish to compete for the club. The training regimes are more comprehensive to real gymnastics training.
They require a significant commitment to the training at assigned times. We expect gymnasts to be prompt for classes in their proper club attire. All gymnasts at the club will have the opportunity to perform in our annual club competition

A certain standard is required before a gymnast can enter competitions outside the club. This is normally at the coaches discretion i.e. if a coach feels that a gymnast is physically and mentally prepared for competitions, the parents would be approached before asking the gymnast.
The following procedure is carried out when the club is notified of a forthcoming competition:-
- All eligible gymnasts are informed of the venue and date and asked whether they are able to compete
- The entry fee will then be requested
- Should your child be withdrawn from the competition by you for any reason, the entry fee will have to be paid and not returned as the club cannot recoup the cost
- We are normally notified of times a week before the competition. We would then inform the parent
- It is imperative that all gymnasts arrive before their warm up time.
- When our gymnasts compete in these competitions their behaviour and appearance has always to be impeccable.
- Full uniform must be worn, no shoes or jewellery allowed.
- Gymnasts must remain with coaches throughout the competition.
Taking part and having fun is foremost...
