We have a wonderful team of experienced coaches to work with and develop our gymnasts across all aspects of rhythmic gymnastics.

The club allocates a coach to each session. Please note that occasionally due to illness or competitions, another coach will cover the session.


It is also the case that we may swap coaches for a session, to enable a expert to work on a specific skill with the gymnasts.
