Star-Tastic Gymnastics was set up by Head Coach Stacey Oliver back in 2014 and it started small, running school-based classes but it has now grown to over 1000 students running classes 7 days a week.
Stacey said: “Gymnastics has always been my passion and coaching children and helping them to achieve their goals is the best job in the world. I have a fantastic team of coaches and staff and they are all a huge part of Star-Tastic. We all share the same vision because we created it together!
Star-Tastic Gymnastics believe great classes need to have great coaches that plan exciting, fun, and progressive lessons.
I decided to run after-school clubs because it gives every child the chance to get involved. As a parent myself, I know busy life gets with having children. So by offering classes at venues and times that are convenient to both the parent and the child seemed like the perfect idea to bring gymnastics to more children!
Open Gymnastics, Trampoline & Parkour Classes:
My aim is to help all our members achieve their goals and moves. I have always loved that we can offer such a range of classes so that everyone can find a session that interests them. We are continuing to grow and I always like to hear from members and parents about extra sessions you have an interest in.
Our coaches support members in classes for every step:
- First classes
- Making friends
- Building teammates
- All Competitions (Recreational competitions to IGA National and IAIGC World Championships
- We praise all members for doing well or trying hard in class and hand out stickers and certificates
- We pass badges too!
My team and I value the whole child and have wellbeing, diversity, inclusion and team building at the forefront of our minds always.
Our aim is to teach our gymnasts a vast range of moves on all our equipment. Some moves can take months to learn but the overwhelming feeling of achievement when you complete something that has taken you a long time is sensational. It helps to show our children that it is not also best to have instant rewards, working hard over time to achieve an end goal can be fantastic and can make us feel great.
I am immensely proud of our Women’s Artistic Elite teams that compete on four pieces. One of my greatest coaching achievements was taking a group of 20 girls aged 7-16 to Nashville in 2019 to compete at the IAIGC World Championships. We came home with so many Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals and I was so proud of my entire team and staff.
Thank you for choosing us and becoming part of our Star-Tastic Team!
