We started the academy in September 2011 in a school library with 20 children. The aim was to get as many children involved with the sport and to improve the sport within schools within our region as it was was very poor.
When we first started out we had a 5 year plan to get our own venue and we are proud to say we have done that but we also managed to get a full fit out of GYMNOVA equipment to make our venue the place to be as there is nothing in the area that comes close to it. We are now in our 6th year and have over 700 gymnasts that train in our centre every week through our academy but we also now support 32 out of 36 local primary schools with gymnastic sessions and we also organise, run and host the local schools Sainsburys games for school children to compete against each other every year.
Our vision for the future is to carry on giving more opportunities for children, adults of all abilities to get involved with our academy and to also grow our coaching team by offering employment and apprenticeship opportunities for local people of North east Lincolnshire.
