The championships are a great experience and we encourage all our gymnasts to take part but it’s not compulsory.
Training for the championships begins 6 weeks before the competition within gymnasts regular classes.

Valdez gym camps are great fun for members and non-members of Valdez. It’s a great way to learn new skills, practice recently learnt ones and have fun! Camps are for children in Reception and above. We run half day camps on Tuesday's from 10am to 1pm and full day camps on Wednesday's 10am-3pm.
Gymnasts practice skills on vault, bars, trampette, beam and floor, along with lots of gymnastics inspired games. We also award a trophy for the Gymnast of the day. Fees are £20.00 per gymnast per half day camp and £35.00 per gymnast per full day camp, which is required beforehand to secure your place. Children are welcome to bring a snack/lunch for break time and don’t forget a labelled water bottle!
