The History of Spectrum

The original Spectrum gymnasts

 

Sarah Hills and Emma Young started Spectrum Gymnastics Academy in May 2016 with a mere 17 gymnast from Bright Stars Gym Schools.

 

BSGS is a company run by Sarah that provides Gymnastics Classes to the Primary Sector in Sevenoaks and Maidstone. SGA began in the hall of Churchill Primary School, Westerham and trained every Thursday evening for 2hrs on Floor, Vault and Beam and Mini Bars. 

 

We moved to Valence School, Westerham in September 2016 on a Monday evening and soon the classes expanded to Wednesday's, Thursday's and Saturday mornings.

 

The club introduced new coaches and invested in their coaching awards. Lots of new equipment was bought and money reinvested back into the club. Soon SGA was full to the brim and a waiting list system was set up online. 

 

Within SGA's first year, the club entered x2 competitions with over 150 gymnasts entered bringing us fantastic results at each level. This was a huge sucess for Spectrum as the coaches did not have long to prepare children but did an amazing job with such short notice!

 

We also enetered x6 gymnasts into Pre Grades with an AMAZING result of Gold place at Level 5 (in age) and x3 gymnasts in the National Development Plan (Grades) in March 2017 with Distinctions and Commended awarded.

 

The club went on to develop a satilite club for Pre School children aged 18 months to 4 years 'SPECTRUM STARS' at the Eden Centre, Edenbridge in September 2017. Classes run on Friday mornings for parent & toddler sessions as well as independent classes to ease children into lessons at Lingfield when they are 5years old/school age

 

In September 2019, Spectrum left Valence school and Lingfield Prep to combined classes in a much larger premesis in the Lingfield Senior School Sports Hall. We invested heavily in brand new competition standard equipment including x2 rigged sets of A-Bars, x1 rigged High Bar, a full 12x12 Floor, x2 New High Beams and Vaulting Table amongst lots of other goodies for Pre School and our general lessons! 

 

Our club now runs Pre School, General Gym, F&V, WA Squads and we have a fabulous team of coaches.
