From the moment they take their first steps, your little one can learn to hop, skip, jump, balance, spin and swing. Gymnastics helps to develop strength, coordination and flexibility as well as improving fitness.

Jolly Gymnastics classes do all of that in a friendly environment where little ones can burn off energy, make friends and, most importantly, have a jolly time.

We specialise in introducing gymnastics to toddlers up to Reception / School Year 1 from two locations to the North of Norwich, whilst also offering After School Clubs when we are able.

We ensure that all of our coaches have British Gymnastics qualifications to the level of the classes they teach. All Jolly Gymnastics coaches have enhanced DBS, Safeguarding training and First Aid qualifications.

Jolly Gymnasts will work towards British Gymnastics awards and skills in every session, with the chance to receive medals and certificates! Best of all, their progress is uploaded to the online Rise Hub each week so you can track their progress.

We have adopted British Gymnastics’ policies and follow their guidelines to keep your little ones safe in the gym. We also have our own Policies and a Code of Conduct which you can download here

As a British Gymnastics club, we have comprehensive insurance for the activities we offer. By becoming British Gymnastics members, our Jolly Gymnasts are also protected whilst they are taking part in the sport.


Who for? From walking to age 4…

What is it? A fairly unstructured parent & toddler class…

Where? Avian Studio & NR12 Gym

As soon as you step in the gym, we get started with a fun game to break the ice and warm us up. Jolly Tots are then free to explore our mini gymnastics equipment at their own pace, under your supervision. This time is the perfect opportunity for you and your little one to play together, meet other people and get to know our friendly coaches. We are on hand to keep an eye throughout, and may suggest one or two skills which you can help your child with. At the end of the session we come back together to for a sticker and everyone leaves with a smile!

Note: SEND Session…

We’ve capped the numbers in this session so little ones can play and have fun on our equipment with their grown up and any siblings, in a slightly quieter environment; perfect for those who have additional needs and find a mainstream session a little too much. The session won’t be structured but free-flow so you can explore large climbing equipment or small sensory activities in your own time and your own way.

  • Half-termly bookings

  • £6.00 per session, paid in advance

  • No British Gymnastics membership requirement.

Who for? From age 2 to age 4…

What is it? A structured parent & toddler class…

Where? Avian Studio & NR12 Gym

If, with your help, your Jolly Tot can follow some instruction (most of the time!) then they’re ready to have a go at our structured class. Take part in a fun themed warm up and then we’ll visit each apparatus where our coaches will introduce you to a circuit of activities you can try with your little one. We work towards British Gymnastics’ Rise Awards whereby you can track progress online and be awarded with medals and certificates three times a year.

  • Half-termly bookings

  • £7.00 per session, paid in advance

  • British Gymnastics pre-school membership required – £14 pa

Who for? Age 3 to 4 years…

What is it? A structured independent class…

Where? Avian Studio & NR12 Gym

As a stepping stone towards our school-aged classes, these classes are for Jolly Tots who are happy to have a go whilst parents have a well-earned rest and watch on from Reception. Activities are structured exactly the same as Stage 2 but children learn to work with coaches independently. We encourage Jolly Tots to take turns and support each other, introducing discipline in a very fun way. You can track your little one’s progress online on the Rise Hub and they may even receive a medal and certificate in one of three Award presentations each year.

  • Half-termly bookings

  • £7.50 per session, paid in advance

  • British Gymnastics pre-school membership required – £14 pa

Who for? Reception and Yr 1…

What is it? A structured independent class…

Where? Avian Studio & NR12 Gym

Jolly Gymnastics’ exciting sessions always start with a game and end with reflection about what we enjoyed most or what amazing new achievements the group should be proud of. We visit a different equipment set-up each week and build on strength, shaping and technique to learn the basic gymnastics skills. We’ll work towards Rise Gymnastics as part of every session – you can track the skills your little ones are learning online and we’ll award medals and certificates for their progress three times a year.

  • Half-termly bookings

  • £8.00 per session, paid in advance

  • British Gymnastics school-age membership required – £20 pa

ERIN MADDEN (nee Jolly)



Erin competed regionally as a gymnast as a child, and still likes to give the odd cartwheel a try when no-one is watching! She previously worked for British Gymnastics and has been coaching gymnastics herself for 18 years, teaching pre-schoolers right up to adults (she finds that children are much better behaved!).

Erin has a 5 year old little boy of her own, who loves to do ‘nastics in the living room!




Kylah has been a gymnast since she was just 18 months old, competing in her final competition at the British Challenge Cup before entering the world of coaching! She coached gymnasts in the elite pathway for 4 years, pursuing her passion in a different way.

Prior to joining Jolly Gymnastics she worked as a teaching assistant in an infant school. Kylah is back doing what she loves, gymnastics!




Gemma is Jolly Gymnastics’ Welfare Officer and can be contacted if you have any concerns or questions at all about a child’s welfare at gymnastics. Gemma has completed Safeguarding training as part of her full-time work and is soon to undertake British Gymnastics’ Time to Listen course.

Gemma is a parent of a Jolly Gymnast herself so understands how important it is to you that they are well looked after.
