Selby swans gymnastic acadmey
Brayton , Selby North Yorkshire
We are a group of parents that got together to open a gymnastics academy for the children of Selby.
Currently we are the only ones in Selby, after advertising the academy on Facebook we saw members rising to 439. However, on our first round we could only take in 92. further to this, we also have to pay a British level 3 coach and the cost of hiring Brayton high schools gym.
We are a brand new club which opening up to the kids of Selby on the 9th May 2016. We are offering general gymnastics to 5-18 year olds.
We have 8 volunteers and 4 older kids doing their coaching program.
We are hoping to expand in September to two nights that will be another 90 kids off our list.The bigger picture is to get our own place in maybe a year and to offer several nights a week. The biggest thing is fun and also fitness, put the two together and everyone wins!
How would this funding have an impact on your community?
We would be able to buy new equipment. Then the funds we do have maybe used towards getting the second night up and running. At the moment all the fundraiser money is being used to purchase equipment.
"Every kids a star we just have to help find what makes them shine.
