Price: £4 per child, payable by Monday 9 May. To book, go to the new group’s web page at osipitan.com.
After the taster, there will be a series of lessons every Tuesday for 12 weeks, starting on Tuesday 24 May and costing £48 per child for the series (which works out at £4 per lesson).
The minimum age is currently 4 years old
(although younger ages can be provided for). At the PE Taster session children will explore running, jumping and some mini gymnastic skills.
A tailor-made 12 week PE program will then be assembled based on the fitness levels and requirements of the group, which will be sent out after the Taster session. Each group will be a max of 12 children and will be grouped according to age.
Class Instructor: Claire Starkey (former Head Coach of British Gymnastics World Medal Winners).
Here’s a photo (click it for bigger version) showing which building you’re looking for. Looking at the view shown here, you’d have your back to the Free School building.
Nearest bus stop: “Leonard Avenue“, on the Brown Line along Hucknall Road. There are frequent buses throughout the day; the 15, 16, 16C or 17 all go there. In town, these buses go from stops T1 and T2 on Milton Road just north of Trinity Square, opposite the Victoria Centre.
Alternatively, if you’re coming from out of town along the Yellow Line along Nottingham Road, your nearest bus stop is called “Haydn Road”. Or if you’re coming from out of town along the Purple or Lime lines, your nearest stop would be a different one called “Haydn Road”. Compared to getting a Brown Line bus, these options mean a bit more walking along Haydn Road itself.
Parking: There is parking outside the gym.
