Do you cater for children with special needs ?
We do cater for children with special needs and currently have members within the club with various special needs ranging from learning disabilities though to cerabal palsy, autism and downs. I am a fully qualified coach with BG to enable me to take children with any disability or special need at both gymnastics and trampolining
On accepting a child with special needs into main stream classes I assess the needs of any child and it would be decided whether we could integrate them within the existing class. Child coach ratios would need to be adjusted to take account of any special needs children It may also be necessary for a parent or carer to be present at all times to assist the coach and the child may need a doctors certificate to confirm they can participate in activities, depending on their disability.
We are also happy to attend any private functions or regular groups or schools or nurseries with special needs children on a regular or ad hoc basis. We have equipment in a trailer which can be transported to different venues and can be hired along with coaches at an hourly rate. We are also happy to start classes specifically for special needs children if sufficient places are taken which can be hosted at any of our locations or with us providing a service at any suitable hall or school or to take 1:1 lessons if appropriate.
We are happy to take referrals within any class for children from medical personnel and funding may be available in some cases to enable participation. We will certainly try our best to accommodate any child, taking into account individual circumstances.
Can you accommodate childrens parties?

Parties can be held at the Village Hall in Hatfield Peverel or Melbourne Athletics Park by prior arrangement and we can accommodate up to 15 children at a time to play for an hour on all apparatus, with the session to include a coach led warm up and cool down for all children.
