Lincoln Gymnastics Centre

Our History

Lincoln Gymnastics club was established in 1981 and trained both male and female gymnasts between the ages of 5 and 18 at both Yarborough Leisure Centre and North Kesteven Leisure Centre.

During 2005, the Club became the first Lincolnshire Club and fifth in the East Midlands Region, to achieve the British Gymnastics GymMark and Sport England Club Mark. Recognised accreditation for a safe, effective and child friendly club, we provide a service to the Community, that children and young people, their parents/carers and others with an interest in gymnastics can trust. We have also achieved re-accreditation every year since.

In 2006 we achieved our goal of opening our own premises dedicated to gymnastics. This facility saw some major changes over the years. With a role of over 600 gymnasts accessing gymnastics, every week we found ourselves outgrowing the space.

After several years of planning and dedication, in 2014 Lincoln Gymnastics Club got the opportunity to begin a facility development project with Lincoln based firm Taylor Lindsey Ltd. They offered to build a facility for us with a floor space to our specification (what we could afford!). We would then move into and rent the building from them. Plans got underway and in 2016 moved in to continue Lincoln Gymnastics Club as it is now.

The club still boasts 600+ membership and is offering more running programmes.

Coaches & Helpers

The Club enjoys the services of a dedicated voluntary team of over 20 experienced male and female coaches. Experience and Qualifications vary from Parent & Proficiency Award Helpers through to Level 4. Qualifications determine the difficulty of skills that coaches can coach and support in differing disciplines we offer.

As well as the coaches there are voluntary people at the gym who help to keep the club running on a day to day basis dealing with finance, kit, supplies and administration.
