Frequently Asked Questions

As and when we’re asked common questions we share them here. Hopefully, between this list and the rest of the site we’ve been able to answer most questions. If not, please feel free to contact us (phone, email, online form, or even snail mail!) – full details on our Contact Us page.

To view the response for any of the questions listed below, simply click on the question title.

Do you train all year round?

All classes are closed for ALL UK bank holidays.

All 5:30pm – 6:30pm classes run term time only, and are closed during school holidays.

All other classes, including Adults and DMT run throughout the year (including school holidays) with the exception of a two week break over Christmas and New Year.

How are classes structured?
We’ve developed a training structure around the class times available which considers both age and ability, however; some classes will have larger age gaps in favour of ability. To find out more, read the section on class structure in the ‘Times and Prices’ page under the ‘About Us’ menu link.
Do I need any previous experience?

No. We accept all ability levels from complete novice to National and International level.

Do you run adult classes, and is there an upper age limit?
We run our adult classes (mostly recreational – non-competitive) on a Monday evening (see the ‘Times and Prices’ page under the ‘About Us’ menu link for more information.
What is the minimum starting age for trampoline?
We currently accept gymnasts from 5 years.
Do you coach Double Mini Trampoline (DMT)?

Yes. We currently run our DMT classes on a Monday and support all ages and ability, however, given the nature of the apparatus, we recommend that gymnasts wanting to train DMT should be able to perform at least a front and back somersault on trampoline.

Do I have to enter competitions?
No. Aquila is a competitive club, and whilst we encourage competitions, it is not compulsory.
Can I pay on a ‘pay as you go’ basis?
Timing of Fees are based on the Swindon Schools term calendar (see the Resources pages to download the calendar), with 5 school terms (ranging from 6 – 8 weeks in duration), plus 1 additional term to cater for the summer holidays. We regret we cannot support ‘pay as you go’ payments other than for returning students.
What should I wear; do I have to wear a leotard?
Gymnasts in the early classes (5:30 – 6:30) and adult classes can wear shorts and t-shirt, or leotard and shorts. Tracksuit bottoms and leggings are also acceptable. Socks must be worn at all times. Leotards are encouraged.

All gymnasts in all other classes are required to wear a leotard and shorts. Tracksuit bottoms and leggings are also acceptable. Socks must be worn at all times.

Every 6 weeks, for one training week, all competition classes will train in competition clothing (leotard only – no shorts for girls, and leotard and whites for boys).
How much does it cost?

That all depends on how many hours a week you train. We’ve developed a training matrix which supports those who are committed to training and working towards higher competition standards. For full details, take a look at the ‘Times and Prices’ page under the ‘About Us’ menu link.

Where do you train, and how do I get there?
Under the ‘About Us’ menu is a link to our ‘Where we train’ pages. From there you can get full address details and directions from your postcode.
