Our aim is for members to have fun and enjoy gymnastics within a safe, friendly and caring environment. CGC couldn’t run without parents- volunteering to bring their kids, paying fees on time, helping with equipment and supporting the committee. You can help us by taking an active role in your child’s gymnastics.

  • Let us know promptly any issues with payment schedules

Attendance:

Please;

  • drop off and collect on time and notify the lead coach if delayed
