Shrewsbury Gymnastics Academy is Shrewsbury's most successful competitive gymnastics club, based in a dedicated, pitted gymnastics facility.
In 1999 Clare and John Howard founded 'Stage 2 Gymnastics Club' as part of Stage 2 Performing Arts Academy.
Clare, a qualified secondary PE teacher and dance specialist ,and John a former headteacher and Ofsted Inspector from Shrewsbury, ran the highly successful performing arts academy in Shropshire alongside the gym's development.
In 2014, Clare & John retired and their daughters Sarah-Jane and Olivia took over the reigns and re branded the club to Shrewsbury Gymnastics Academy.
Shrewsbury Gymnastics Academy offers a well-structured organisation run by professionally qualified owners within the auspices of ‘British Gymnastics’. They support a full complement of coaches, through building upon a gymnastics club that attempts to foster progression for children through a safe, well organised environment, within a caring ethos.
Classes are run in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and at Lilleshall National Sports Centre throughout the week.
Currently, places for ages 5+ are filled by artistic gymnasts ranging from recreational beginner to competitive regional and national grades level. The club are proud to have produced both county and regional champions, including gymnasts representing the region at British Grades Finals.
Our drop-in Stay & Play Pre-school session on a Wednesday 9.30-10.30am offers those toddlers too young for structured classes the opportunity to explore our gymnasium.
The clubs covers artistic equipment of Bars, Pitted Bars, Beam, Vault, Full Sprung Floor, Sprung Tumble, Trampoline and Conditioning.
Only caring and suitably well-qualified British Gymnastics coaches are employed with a good balance of youth and maturity.
We will be happy to discuss any issues and arrange an appropriate session for children in Shrewsbury as soon spaces become available.
