When was the club formed?
The Cheshire Academy Artistic gymnastics club was first formed in 1993 specifically for children and young adults with disabilities
What sort of disabilities are catered for?
Our disability club caters for children with physical, sensory and learning disabilities. For instance have children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome, Fragile X, Motor difficulties, Williams syndrome to name but a few.
What ages are catered for?
Children aged 5 and upwards are welcome to join and we have members of our club in their 20's. Children who are younger can come along to our integrated pre school gymnastics classes.
Do you run more than one type of class?
We run a whole range of classes depending on a childs ability and needs. Some classes for instance are language orientated where developing communication and meaningful interaction is the main focus of the class. This may be especially useful for children who fall within the autistic spectrum.

Other classes look closely at physical aspects of a childs development and issues such as coordination, balance, overall sequencing and occula-motor tasks predominate.
We are keen to match each child to the appropriate class
What successes has the club had?
The Academy has won more than 145 All Round regional and National titles since its formation in 1993. We have trained many gymnasts to regional, national , european, and international standard including "All Round World Champion" level.
