Notices


Sessions changes this week

Deer Park have a drama production running this week which means we only have use of the gym (not the hall) this Friday.  We have therefore had to make some changes to the sessions which will run this Friday - February 23rd.

The 5pm-6pm Development Squad session has been cancelled - please could these gymnasts attend for an hour on MONDAY FEBRUARY 26TH 5.15PM-6.15PM instead.

5pm-8pm and 5pm-7pm Squad sessions will all train between 5pm-6.30pm only. The missed time will be made up in extra training to prepare for displays and competitions as and when needed.

FreeG sessions will run as normal.
Sessions will return to normal for the following Friday.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.



Christmas Springmas Display 2018

The Christmas Display has been rescheduled for Sunday 11th March 2018.  Everything from the postponed display will transfer over to the new one so please put tickets you have purchased somewhere safe. If your gymnasts were in the morning display they will be in the morning display in March. The only change is the date.


Dropping Off

We'd like to remind parents to come into the building when dropping off and picking up their children. Please ensure the session they are attending is running and please be prompt. Thank you
