Help us bring a great gymnastic training opportunity to Wexford!
We are Wexford’s first full time gymnastics facility, providing gymnastics to the people of Wexford for over 35 years.
And now, after 12 years of hard work and perseverance, we finally have our own premises! From this January 2016, we are providing full time tuition for our gymnasts in our new facility.
From play gym for toddlers, to recreational classes for primary and secondary students, to parkour/free running for all ages, to adults classes, to Special Olympics, to competitive team training, there is a place for everyone at our gym.
All we need to finish this world class facility is foam pits. The full cost of the pits is over £30,000 and we are looking to raise the deposit of €7,500. Help us to bring this great training opportunity to our gym and to the South East of Ireland! The function of the foam block jump pit is to provide extra safety when learning new skills in case of falls. Pits are useful for vault, tumbling, beam dismounts, safe bar skill learning, bar release moves, bar dismounts, ring dismounts, P-bar dismounts and acro moves. The pits will also be of benefit to the Special Olympic Club who train in our gym every Saturday.
