Brentwood Trampoline Club, through its committee, has now embarked on the process of achieving GymMark accreditation. This is an important step for us since it is likely that British Gymnastics will establish this as a pre-requisite in due course - it will be good to be ahead of the game. Some of the implications of this activity are that where some processes we go through have been informal and low-key in the past we may need to become more formal - our challenge will be to not let this distract from members' trampolining development and enjoyment. As an aside to this we will also be looking to parents to become more aware of some of the GymMark requirements particularly in respect of such matters as how children come prepared for sessions and are collected - you can read more about this on our website at
