Welcome to Daves Gymnastics Academy in Colchester

DGA 3rd International


Welcome to Dave's Gymnastic Academy where our goal is to provide a safe, positive and fun experience for all – from toddlers to 'veteran' gymnasts.

The coaching is led by Dave Schadek, High Performance Coach, ably assisted by a large team of coaches.

All our coaches hold British Gymnastics Coaching qualifications, enhanced CRBs, and have attended 'Safeguarding and Protecting Children' courses. Every session has appropriately qualified first aiders amongst the coaches.

We have weekday and Saturday morning Recreational classes for those children doing 1 hour a week, learning there basic gymnastics and working towards lots of different badge schemes. Our Parent and Toddler classes are open class they are run on a Monday and Friday morning.

We also have a squad of Competitive Women’s Artistic Gymnasts, ranging from the age of 4 years upwards, who train from 2 hours to 26 hours per week. We offer amazing opportunities to our squad girls to compete all over the world. This year alone we have been to Belgium, Holland, Malta and Jersey.
