TESTIMONIALS

“Valleys Gymnastics Academy are an innovative and inclusive club, focusing on the needs of all members. VGA are an excellent example of inclusive gymnastics ... and their practice should be shared with other clubs within gymnastics and the community (Disability Sport Wales).”

-

“I was blown away by how great the class and the instructors were ... my son is incredibly shy and didn’t want to participate at first but in the end I had to drag him away. What a fantastic class!”

-

“VGA has been much more than learning gymnastics to her. It has given her an identity, taught her so many life skills and has helped her form some amazing friendships and memories.”

-

“VGA has been supporting my daughters enthusiasm for gymnastics for a little over eleven months. I find the staff to be kind, knowledgeable and experienced in this field and the children who attend are encouraged to achieve their highest potential. I would recommend this centre as my daughter develops each session, not only with new skills but also how to work with others to embrace and learn how to deal with success and cope with defeat. A nurturing environment for your child to excel.”

-

“My little girl loves her class. Most of all she loves doing forward rolls and balancing along the beams. Gymnastics is a fantastic way to develop her skills. Amazing class.”

-

“My daughter attends Pontypool every Sunday morning and loves it. It’s a great class and the staff are fab. She always looks forward to a Sunday morning!”

-

“My child loves it, her confidence has gone though the roof, every week she can’t wait to do more then she can at home.”

-

“My son and I dropped into the Freerunning session on a Sunday. Great fun and a different way to keep active! I highly recommend it to all.”

-

“My child was welcomed with open arms by the other girls and the whole team, she progressed very very quickly and enjoyed every second she was was at VGA. From my perspective you're doing an amazing job; helping every child, communicating with parents brilliantly and running a very professional club. I don't know how you do it all but I wanted to make sure it was noted!”

“My son has ASD and is non verbal, and loves coming on a Sunday. The staff are brilliant with him for his needs. He loves running and jumping everywhere and his confidence has improved a lot.”

-

“We've just come back from the toddler drop in session. We go every week and I can't say enough good things about it! The facilities are fantastic and so enjoyable for the children - and coach Luke is absolutely amazing with them! He is like the Pied Piper, my normally shy son follows him around and joins in all of his imaginative games, it's so lovely to see! By far our favourite activity of the week!”

 

-

“I have never seen my son more excited by any sporting activity we have tried! We LOVE it!”

-

“I take my little one to Crumlin on a Wednesday and she loves it, everyone is lovely and work really hard with the children. They also have a room that parents can use watch upstairs. A*”

-

“Love this place and so does my little girl (and husband). It’s run by a great team who are all approachable, friendly and very knowledgeable. I recommend everyone to try a class - this place is a real find. Definitely 5/5!”

-

“My grandaughter loves the pre-school classes! And this week we tried out VGA's Physkids at Abertillery (Tuesday 10.30) and she absolutely loved that too. Thank you VGA!”

-

“I've been taking my granddaughter for two years. To say she loves going to both the structured and drop in toddler sessions is an understatement. I would recommend this to all parents and grandparents of toddlers. Keep up the good work VGA!”

-

“Excellent! Take all of your kids, there's something for all ages and abilities and the coaches are amazing!”

-

"My daughter has not only grown in strength, but also as a person, due to the outstanding training through the Zoom sessions during lockdown. We are forever grateful to all of the coaches for their hard work and commitment."

-

“Through the online sessions, my daughter felt connected and fully part of her gymnastics community throughout the lockdown and closure of the club’s venues. The online sessions have been integral in helping her continue her training and maintaining her fitness. She looks forward to seeing the coach online 6 times a week, there’s always a fun game to warm up and a new development in a skill she wants to show at the end. The relationship between Mel and all her gymnasts is what makes this so very special. Isla respects her feedback and Mel knows exactly how to motivate and challenge her. These online sessions have shown her the value of hard work and commitment to something that’s not only a hobby but her choice to dedicate too.”

-

“The zoom online sessions that have been run by VGA have been amazing! They are focused well planned sessions. They have made such a difference in my daughter! Her strength and flexibility has improved beyond belief and I'm so thankful that she attends this club. The coaches have gone above and beyond for the children!”

-

"VGA has offered a wide range of online sessions that have not only continued with the development of my daughter's gymnastics but they have also offered fun sessions, family activities and much more, all from the convenience of our own home. The sessions have provided a safe and secure way for my daughter to participate online and she soon felt comfortable working in this new-normal way. In a time when the world came to a complete stand still the ability to keep some normality in my daughters life was so beneficial, not only for her physical but mental well being. I'm so glad we trusted in the online provisions and my daughter is continuing to progress well.”
