About Us 

Upstarts Gymnastics is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), providing artistic gymnastics activities for boys and girls of all ages. We offer early years through to teens, at all levels from pre-school and recreational participation to a variety of  opportunities.  We like our children to be able to have fun while they learn, with opportunities to take proficiency badges, perform in shows, compete in competitions from club level up to national level, or just to come along and enjoy learning some new skills.

At Upstarts we like to give children the opportunity to reach their potential in gymnastics, with fun and a safe environment at the heart of our provision.  Operating at a dedicated facility in Hathern, Loughborough, we offer excellent coach to gymnast ratios to give the greatest experience and engagement for our gymnasts.

We are proud to offer a Young Leader programme for our older gymnasts, to learn about all aspects of volunteering within the sport, from coaching and judging to event support and organisation.

Our links to Loughborough University supports the mentoring of aspiring coaches and provision of coaching opportunities for students. We also provide employment for qualified coaches and provide a pathway to those qualifications for people who enjoy coaching or those wishing to have a career in gymnastics.

Upstarts Gymnastics CIO holds 'GymMark', the Sport England ClubMark standards accreditation scheme, and all our coaches are members of British Gymnastics and hold DBS Enhanced checks.
