Launching at Everyone Active centres across the country in 2018 and 2019, Max Whitlock Gymnastics is an all-new scheme designed to give children the opportunity to participate in gymnastics through a fun and unique activity program. The scheme has been designed exclusively by double Olympic champion Max Whitlock and his wife, elite gymnastics coach Leah Whitlock and together, Everyone Active and Max Whitlock Gymnastics have pledged to engage one million children in gymnastics by the year 2022.
The programme has been designed to teach children the fundamental skills required for gymnastics, as well as helping them progress in the sport beyond the scheme. Both Everyone Active and Max Whitlock Gymnastics are passionate about ensuring that each child gets the most out of their sessions – each of which is taught by passionate, fully-trained instructors – making sure they have fun and progress through the stages at their own rate.
Gymnastics is a superb way to help your child get active, have fun, make new friends and expand their horizons by trying a new sport.
Max’s Mastery Awards
Each term, the children will work towards earning a ‘Max’s Mastery Award’ in one of the four key tenets of gymnastics – Power, Strength, Balance and Flexibility. Each discipline is split into Bronze, Silver and Gold awards, while each term includes a themed ‘Dress to the Max’ fancy dress session towards the end for the children to enjoy.
Alongside the gymnastics, each session also includes fun games for the participants to enjoy, but which also have an educational element to them, helping them progress towards their Max’s Mastery award that term and to completing the course.
Max Whitlock Gymnastics Membership Package
Included in the membership package for each child is a Max Whitlock Gymnastics T-shirt to be worn at each session, a progress booklet and award stickers to put in it to help you keep track of their progress, along with a quarterly newsletter, helping you keep abreast of everything that’s going on with the scheme.
