Membership   ^Top of page

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


From 1st October 2017, gymnasts must join or renew their membership directly with British Gymnastics via a new online process. Previously, clubs processed the membership on behalf of the gymnast but due to changes in data protection regulation, this is no longer possible. See GDPR

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.     

Please keep us informed
Letters and cheques 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.

"Making gymnastics fun for all" Club motto


Frequently Asked Questions
   ^Top of page


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.



Where can I get hold of kit?
Kit is ordered from The Zone or Prints and Threads, details for this can be found above.



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 - Jesse Vizor. She'll be in most Saturdays at a desk 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 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 gym block is directly opposite the tennis court. Go in and turn left into the atrium and you will find us.

 
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. Coaches will advise parents when these are due.

 
Why do you want my e-mail address?
We have over 400 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 our website up-to-date so will use this to post any notice of cancellations or changes.

 
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 as of October 2017 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.

 

Who does what in the gym club?
Claire Marriott is the Head Coach. She is responsible for managing the coaching team of 25+ coaches and volunteers, organising training plans, entering competitions, allocating gymnasts to sessions and ensuring that all our gymnasts are safe in the gym. Behind the scenes we have a committee whose job is to manage our finances, organise events and displays, membership details, policy and procedures, plan for the future and more.

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
There has been a significant change to the legislation regarding data protection. A new legislation called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in place and set to become adopted by UK law. All companies and businesses within the UK and the EU will have until May 2018 to ensure they are compliant with the new regulation. Superseding the Data Protection  Act (1998), it affects how organisations obtain, use and retain their data in their day to day work.

With this in mind, our governing body; British Gymnastics has changed the way you are able to register your child for their membership which includes their insurance for gymnastics training. Within the first 2 weeks of joining, you must register your child via the British Gymnastics website available as of 1st October 2017 and must be done by the week commencing the 14th October 2017 to enable your child to continue to do gymnastics with Cotswolds. Without it, unfortunately, we are unable to accept your child as they will not have valid membership or insurance.



Portable Appliance Testing
All of our electrical equipment is frequently tested by an in house certified PAT (Portable Appliance Tester).
