Planet Gymnastics is a community club that provides Gymnastics and Dance tuition for all ages, from babies to adult. Planet Gymnastics also provides CSSIW registered after school club care, including school pick up and a gymnastics lesson and holiday fun in our fantastic fully equipped Gymnastics and Dance centre. A family run centre for the community, Planet Gymnastics puts its emphasis on participation for all regardless of age, gender and social and economic background.
New members attend the General Gymnastics/Pre-school classes which are held at convenient times from Monday to Sunday. From these classes our qualified coaches who have experience in talent identification can select those children who have a particular aptitude for flexibility and strength to transfer to our development/phases squads. However, all children are encouraged to progress through the system to the improver levels at their own rate and work through the British Gymnastics awards scheme.
Development squads prepare the children for later transfer into the many disciplines of gymnastics such as Girls and Boys Artistic Gymnastics and Tumbling. There are currently several members in Welsh Development Squads.
Planet Gymnastics is a feeder club for Cardiff Olympic Gymnastics. A registered charity, Cardiff Olympic (formally Cardiff Olympic Youth Club) was founded in 1948 and is the longest established ladies artistic gymnastics club in Wales.
