Size Guide

Membership


Important information please read all of the below
:
Gymnasts can become members of British Gymnastics (BG) if they have been offered a place* in a British Gymnastics registered club.  A club can only register with BG if they meet high standards by operating a safe, child-friendly environment, with coaches qualified to national standards. Cotswold Gymnastics Club is the only club in Cirencester registered with British Gymnastics and we must adhere to their rules on membership.


* If you are looking to join (yourself or on behalf of your child) you must have been offered and accepted a place at Cotswold Gymnastics Club. For Waiting list / enquires about joining visit the Sessions page and complete the waiting list form.


Gymnasts must join or renew their membership online with British Gymnastics. Previously, clubs processed the membership on behalf of the gymnast but due to changes in data protection regulation this is no longer possible. The club cannot do this on your behalf.  For renewals you should have received an e-mail from BG with instructions including your logon details.




Cost
The membership year runs from 1st October 2019 to 30th September 2020


New starters
New gymnasts can join at any time during the year provided they have been offered a place. Click the 'Join for the first time' link above to begin.
Session payments are then made directly to the club and direct debit is our preferred option, see below for Fee Information.

Current monthly fees structure


What happens if I don’t pay on time?

Your gymnast will not be able to attend gym until the fees are paid :( . You’ll be reminded by the club that payment is overdue. 


If none of this prompts you to pay for the gym sessions that your child attends and payment hasn't been made within 14 days of the due date, then your child's session position will no longer be available and the club will offer the place out to the waiting list

Notice
We require one months notice if your child is going to leave. Remember to then cancel your Standing Order. The club will not be liable for over payment.

Please keep us informed
Letters and e-mails can go astray in the post and we understand that sometimes paperwork can get lost in the pile of ‘things to sort out’. We also understand that some parents have difficulties in paying fees, please contact us if you need to discuss this in confidence, we can help.

"Making gymnastics fun for all" Club motto


Frequently Asked Questions

Click each question for the answers

What should my child wear for gym?

Girls should wear leotards and boys unitards and shorts - these are available to buy. Bare feet, hair tied back and no jewellery. It is not obligatory to wear the club leotard

Is there space for my child to join?

Our club mostly runs at full capacity and we operate a waiting list for nearly all our sessions. We fill spaces as children leave or if new sessions are created. Turnover in the club is low and the average wait is 9-18 months We have a waiting list form you can complete on the Sessions Page Click this link

How much do your sessions cost?

Our monthly rates are listed above and dependent on the number of hours your child is signed up to train to each week

I've got a query, who can I talk to face to face?

If you are at the club (Deer Park School), first point of contact should be our Front of house representative when you enter the atrium, just ask. During the week, the coaches are very busy but they will be free to talk at the end of sessions

Can I sell second-hand kit?

Yes please, we are always grateful to receive donations of second hand kit to sell. Other parents get cheaper kit and the club benefits from the proceeds - win/win!

What's the youngest age you train?

At present the youngest we currently train is pre-school age 3+ with no upper age limit

Where do you train?

We train in the gymnasium & main hall at Deer Park School. Use the second entrance to the school (not the college/Sundial theatre entrance) and park in the allocated parking next to the hockey pitch. The Physical Education department is directly opposite the tennis court. Go in and turn left into the atrium and you will find us. We have a map available here

Can I watch my child do gym?

Parents are not allowed in the gym during normal sessions but we hold an annual display at Christmas and occasionally have parent watching sessions

Why do you want my e-mail address?

We have over 450 members so the most efficient way of communicating with members is via e-mail. If we have to cancel a session at late notice we will only notify you by e-mail. We also keep this website up-to-date so will use this to post any notice of cancellations or change. You can also follow us on Facebook



Why do you want my mobile number?

We will only use your mobile number if we need to get hold of you urgently, usually during a gym session if your child is unwell or if they have injured themself. It is important that you keep us informed if any of your contact details change

Why do we have to pay for British Gymnastics membership?

Our club is a member of British Gymnastics who provide us with insurance, training and support. It is a condition of our insurance that all our members are registered with BG. Registration runs from September to September and must be arranged with BG directly

What happens to my registration form?

These are kept in a secure file in the gym so that if we need to contact you, or if there is a medical emergency, we have all your details to hand. We will ask you to check your details from time to time to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information

Why can’t I pay my fees to the coaches?

The coaches are very busy with the gymnasts before and during gym sessions and cannot be asked to look after fee payments as well! We have a clear process for fee payment, if you need any assistance please e-mail Cotswold Gymnastics Club Membership Secretary

Why has my child's session changed?

We try and place your child into a session which will enable them to work to their best ability. When your child joins the gym club we do not know where their abilities lie so take time to assess them, they also need time to settle into the session. We review the sessions at the end of every term and may move children around to ensure that they are benefiting from the coaching that they receive; sometimes this will mean offering more hours in the gym or simply moving them into a different session. If you’d like to discuss session moves then please arrange to talk to your child’s coach

Finding lost property

Lost property is held at the gym, please ask Front of house or the Coffee Shop volunteers if you have lost property or have found property to hand in

She is responsible for managing the coaching team of 35+ coaches and volunteers, organising training plans, entering competitions, allocating gymnasts to sessions and ensuring that all our gymnasts are safe in the gym.
