About BEAM! Gymnastics

BEAM! through Gymnastics is an accessible gymnastics club supporting children with additional emotional, physical, behavioural and sensory challenges.

The brain child of sisters, Adele Lawrence and Rachel Rogers from Cirencester, ‘BEAM! through Gymnastics’ was formed to fill a void in the lack of local sports clubs for children with additional emotional, physical, behavioural and sensory challenges in the local area. ‘Beam!’ has aspirations of facilitating young people to participate in the Special Olympic Games. Adele and Rachel have identified a need in the local area for Gymnastics Groups for children with additional emotional, physical, behavioural and sensory challenges and realising that, between themselves, will create an excellent team to deliver such a service. They have both attended a disabilities gymnastics course at Lilleshall through British Gymnastics and launched a six week term of pilot sessions to trial the concept in September 2017. Such was the success of the pilot that a second cycle of sessions started in November 2017.

The target audience of BEAM! is any child who has additional emotional, physical, behavioural and sensory challenges. Acknowledging that every gymnast has differing needs, Adele and Rachel would work with each child individually to set achievement targets for each participant.
