We are super proud of our team… each and every one of our coaches, admin staff and welfare are committed to delivering gymnastics to your budding gymnast(s), helping them reach their full potential from communication from parents to coaches, to safeguarding and building emotional confidence in the gym. 

All of our staff volunteer with the club too, on top of their coaching, admin & welfare duties, helping your children enjoy the sport of gymnastics for many years to come. 

We are all about making life long friendships and lasting memories, alongside our gymnastic passion.

Lisa Souter

Director & Founder

“Hi there, I’m Lisa Souter and I started Horizon TeamGym in October 2000 with a handful of amazing gymnasts and their parents, teamwork was and still is the dreamwork. Over the years the club has seen gymnasts and coaches come and go, but the ethos has always remained the same… each gymnast/coach is unique, they must always be at the centre of their learning and their learning outcomes will define them in the future.

We all learn differently, we all need to feel safe to learn & we all make mistakes, big or small you own it and learn from it to make yourself the very best version of you moving forwards.”
