Berkhamsted Gymnastics Club
Berkhamsted Gymnastics Club is a long established, successful and friendly gymnastics club in Berkhamsted. They offer fun classes for pre-school children as well as competitive squads which are all led by a team of volunteer and paid coaches. They have a permanent facility within the grounds of Ashlyns School and a second site for their pre-school classes at Gossoms End Scout Hut, where they have equipment specially designed for the under 5’s.
Berkhamsted Gymnastics Club pride themselves on being a club for all, ensuring participation, enjoyment and self-improvement.
Since its foundation in 1973, the club has helped to train thousands of children in the sport with some of their gymnasts reaching county, regional and even national level. As well as teaching gymnastics they have a thriving coach education program. Many of their gymnasts progress to being club coaches passing their love of the sport onto future generations.
Due to restructuring with the club they now find themselves in need of experienced professional people to sit on their committee. They are particularly looking for people from a background in any of the following areas: HR, Legal, Health and Safety, sports management. The committee meets every 4-6 weeks at the gym club for approx. 2.5 hours. The role also requires up to 3 hours a week, although this can be less. They are looking for someone to come on board as Chair of the committee to help lead the club through the next stage of its development and also a Vice Chair to support this role.
