7 April 2024 - Congratulations to fabulous five Makayla, Merryn, Kimii-Li, Ida and Izzy who all took part in the West Midlands Performance Grades yesterday in Cannock.  Ida achieved a 'working at' score, and Mak, Merryn, Kimii and Izzy all achieved 'working above' scores meaning they are progressing to the next level at next year's grades! We send huge congrats to Merryn who achieved the highest vault score in Performance 2, and to Izzy and Makayla who both achieved a place in the West Mids team for National Finals next month (Izzy in Performance 1 and Mak in Performance 4).  You are all brilliant!! We send get well soon wishes to Grace who wasnt able to compete because she was unwell.  We missed you Grace and hope you are back on form very soon.  Scores from the competition can be found via the Comp scores page and photos on the pics page.

26 March 2024 - IMPORTANT NOTICE RE CAR PARK CHARGING - please note that from 4 April 2024, the university is charging for car parking including weekends.  Car park charges apply from 8am until 6pm every day (£2.50). Parents are advised to drop off gymnasts whenever possible, and to arrive as near to 6pm as possible for each weekday session to avoid charges. At weekends, parents will need to pay for parking or (as is usually the case, for the 11:00 class..) please drop off and pick up your daughter as near to start and finish times as possible, to again avoid the need to pay for parking.  

Parents of the 10am class, we do not have a simple solution as you will want to remain on site during the session and therefore will need to pay for parking.  To help you to manage the extra cost created by the University we will reduce the cost of the 10am session by £1 (to £5 per session) for the immediate future (from Saturday 6th April). I do hope this helps and  you are able to continue to bring your child to Flames.

Any questions, please do get in touch in the usual way.

13 March 2024 - Ramadan fasting arrangements; During the holy month of Ramadan, Flames gymnasts who are fasting will be supported to adapt their training to be lighter and less intense and have ample opportunity to break their fast and pray at the required time. Please talk to any of the coaches to ensure we are aware your child is fasting.
