Parking at SGA

The gym will be very busy tonight especially between 4-5pm as we have a new class starting. As parking is very limited it is a good idea to park a little walk away from the gym to avoid congestion. If you are parking at SGA please ensure you observe the following:

Do not block any of the entrance / exits to properties on Barrys Lane

Do not obstruct the view for other vehicles, pedestrians & cyclists.

Do not obstruct the path for emergency vehicles and any of the larger vehicles who use Barrys Lane.

Do not park in or obstruct any of the designated coaches parking spaces.

To help resolve the flow of traffic on Barry’s Lane please try to park a little walk away from SGA and walk to / from the club with your child.

Ensure you supervise your child into the SGA premises and collect from the gym after their session.  No children will be allowed into the car park alone.

Please ensure you park safely and considerately 🙂

Inspiration Generation National winner 🏆

We would like to congratulate Marjorie Carter for recently winning a National award for inspiring a generation.

Marjorie competed as a gymnast at the 1952 Helsinki Olympic Games & the 1960 Rome Olympic Games. Marjorie then went on to coaching, and inspired many gymnasts and coaches throughout the years. SGA head coaches Nikii and Evy were coached by Marjorie at the city of Leeds gymnastics club where she was head coach for many years. Marjorie was also a huge part of the Leeds Esprit coaching team for 8 years, and volunteered 3 times a week at the club, because of her love for the sport.

McCarthy & Stone build retirement housing across Britain, and have a complex where Marjorie currently lives. McCarthy & Stone have recently run a campaign called Inspirational Generation, which involved a search for the most inspirational older people in the UK. There have been various regional winners of the campaign, and Marjorie has been chosen as the National winner!

McCarthy & Stone teamed up with Leeds Esprit and held an event to celebrate Marjorie’s amazing achievement!

Congratulations from everyone at SGA. We are all very proud of Marjorie, and she is a very well deserved winner! 🏆

Marjorie was a huge inspiration to us and inspired us to coach. Without that SGA would not exist. Thankyou Marjorie ⭐️
