    We are a British Gymnastic club (BG), so you must join BG after your child's second session for their insurance to be valid. Unfortunately, your child won't be able to finish the course without BG membership. The membership cost is £22 for a whole year, comes with a number of advantages, and gives your child personal accident insurance. Please include your child's British Gymnastics membership number when making your booking if they are already a member. New BG members who have joined to attend our sessions should email their number separately after their second session. When registering Join - Sports Club Newcastle - 94135
