British Gymnastics Membership 2017-18

Your British Gymnastics Membership 2017-18

Dear club member, parent or guardian,

It’s time to complete your British Gymnastics membership for the new membership year.

All club members need to become members of British Gymnastics, the national governing body for gymnastics in the UK. This is to benefit from insurance cover as well as receive discounts and other member benefits.

The British Gymnastics membership process has changed recently and you’ll need to register directly via the British Gymnastics website. Unfortunately, until this step is complete, you will not be able to attend gymnastics sessions, so please complete the process as soon as you can.

What you need to know

To help you complete the process, please note the following information:

  • You’ll need to be at least 16 years old. If not, please ask a parent or guardian to complete the process on your behalf.
  • Whoever completes the process will need a personal and secure email address to create the account and for essential member correspondence.
  • You’ll also need this leaflet as it contains some specific details about the type of membership you need, which your club has provided over the next few pages.
  • The British Gymnastics online membership system enables a parent/guardian to create one account which covers multiple members. Additional members can be added by selecting ‘Add Child’. This will mean parents/guardians (including those who coach or carry out a club role) can create multiple British Gymnastics memberships in a swift and efficient way


How to complete your British Gymnastics membership

Please visit

It’s quick and easy to do on smartphones and on tablets, or you may prefer to use a computer.

To complete the process, we’ll ask you to enter some personal details to create your member account, such as name, date of birth and home address of the member. If you have previously been a member of British Gymnastics, we may already have some information on file which we will ask you to confirm to speed up the process.

As well as providing personal information, you’ll also need to confirm the name of your gymnastics club Swallows of Helston Gymnastics Club.

If you are a gymnast (or their parent/guardian), you’ll also need to enter the information listed in this leaflet below. This is required in all cases, regardless of whether you are renewing your British Gymnastics membership or becoming a member for the first time.

Type of Gymnastics

You will need to select the types of gymnastics sessions you attend.  If you are unsure please ask your child’s coach. We hold the following classes:

  • Adult Gymnastics
  • General Gymnastics (Recreational)
  • Men’s Artistic Gymnastics
  • Pre-school Gymnastics
  • Women’s Artistic Gymnastics


Membership types

  • Preschool gymnast
  • Gymnast
  • Competitive gymnast (we will tell you if you need this level of membership)



Please pay British Gymnastics the membership fee.  You’ll need to pay online via debit or credit card.
