About Us:

Our Vision:

Sparta Trampoline Club SCIO is for ages 5+, based at Bellahouston Sports Centre on the South Side of Glasgow.

 

We aim to invest in our each of our gymnasts beyond only what concerns their trampolining, because the day-to-day details of their lives all matter when they come to training.  We believe in developing strong individuals, not just trampolinists.

 

The name:

Izzy has a strong Czech heritage and the word 'Sparta' is used by a lot of sports clubs in the Czech Republic.  Whilst she was researching potential names she discovered this interesting fact about the Spartans, which fitted her vision for the club:

 

"Spartiates underwent the rigorous training and education regimen, and Spartans were widely considered to be among the best in battle. Spartan women enjoyed considerably more rights and equality to men than elsewhere in the classical world."
