Description

Wyre Forest Gymnastic School (WFGS) is based in Kidderminster, Worcestershire and is affiliated to British Gymnastics and The West Midlands Amateur Gymnastics Association. We are accredited with GymMark meaning that we are deemed a safe, effective and child friendly club.
 
WFGS has been in operation for over 25 years and endeavours to be a fun and friendly place to take up gymnastics. All children regardless of their ability are welcome; our aim is to promote the sport within the local community. We hope that our passion for the sport is evident as soon as you walk through our doors.
 
From our dedicated facility, we offer classes 7 days a week for children and young adults, from our Baby Group to gymnasts who have trained with us for over 15 years. We have over 600 gymnasts pass through our doors each week with over 100 on our waiting list. We offer the opportunity to take part in General Gymnastics, Mens's and Women's Artistic Gymnastics, Disability Gymnastics and Pre-School Gymnastics.

With WFGS being in constant use we are in need of equipment that is both expensive and specialist in order to continue to develop the young people who access the gym. If successful, the funding would enable WFGS to purchase new equipment such as new pit mats and a vault run. This would benefit every single child using the facility and any new members.

It would be fantastic to enhance the equipment available at Wyre Forest Gymnastic School and enable all our gymnasts to train to their full potential.

All those involved in the running of the club go above and beyond to make a difference. Giving up many hours to provide a high quality facility and service. But what makes it most worthwhile, is seeing all the members of the community who get involved every week enjoying gymnastics.
