Eclipse Gymnasium Sessions
Wednesday 15th 11-12 & Friday 17th February 1-2

We are delighted to say two fun sessions will go ahead during half term for our Sunflowers.
It’s important to us that we provide fun, safe and accessible events that not only help to improve mental health, but physical health too, whilst reducing isolation and helping to get mums and dads together to provide mutual support.
There will be two sessions during half term, each for up to 30 children. A parent/guardian must be present on the premises at all times and responsible for their children’s well-being. Ray Stephenson, one of our regular Sunflowers medics, will also be on site at each.
Families will need to be there 20 minutes before each session to allow for moving and handling (and the same at the end) to allow for a full hour’s activities. If we have a lot of wheelchair users, we may contact parents and ask these to be there slightly earlier.
Becky, who will be runnning the sessions, is the assistant physio at St Hugh’s school for the last 11 years and she says she knows what it’s like entering new territory – but there’s no need to be nervous! There will be 5 staff members on the day, as well as some young leaders, so plenty of help will be at hand.
There will be an initial wake and shake stretch, there is a lovely large sprung floor which will accommodate everyone, and in groups their coaches will take the children around the different apparatus. They have a fast track, foam pit, bars which each child will be supported on, beams and on the floor there will an obstacle course which will include climbing over under pushing and sensory activities.
The trampoline will be in use for rebound purposes, however, medical clearance is needed for this piece of apparatus, for example, children with spinal rods are not permitted – hence we will be in advance, on the application form, for further information to be provided.
At the end there will be cool down 5/10 minutes, and children at the end of the session will receive a certificate to say they completed a certain apparatus!
There is larger toilet area and a room with a plinth where the hoist can be situated, and the door can be locked for changing.
Capacity for children along with siblings will be 30 – this does not include the adults – but does include the siblings this is purely for safety purposes. There are no limits for wheelchair users, however, they do only have one hoist.
Eclipse are covered by British Gymnastics for disability sessions.
Parking – there is parking at the front of the building and they will open the shutters for wheelchairs.
Everyone should wear something comfortable – that also goes for parents!
Eclipse are situated at 252 King Edward street, Grimsby nearly opposite Rowlands Upholstery.

Full details on how to apply will be posted on our private Sunflowers group or email hello@sunflowers.org.uk.
