About Us

Velocity was founded in 2014 by Franki Riches and Sarah Vass-Slater who, having coached successfully together for 5 years, endeavoured to create a local club in the Sevenoaks district offering high quality gymnastics classes for all. 

Our main aim is to provide gymnastics to children of all abilities, nurturing not only the athlete but the child too through our progressive and friendly coaching methods.

Our Classes


Pre-school/Parent & Toddler

From the moment they walk, gymnastics is a great way to build confidence and basic motor skills that will help your child to develop both mentally and physically.


Recreational Gymnastics

Gymnastics is the foundation of many sports, and our recreational classes are the perfect activity for children of school age to participate in each week for both fun and fitness.

Competitive Gymnastics

At Velocity Gymnastics, we are proud to have several active and thriving squad classes across our timetable, producing several Local, County and Regional champions.

“My son was only 3 when he started at Velocity and despite being one of the youngest in the class, he was always included and given skills to learn that were suited to his ability and not just his age.

The pre-school class is absolutely all about fun and laughs, and trying something new in an environment where they feel safe to explore. I can't thank Velocity enough for inspiring the next generation and doing it by putting the child at the heart of their coaching.”
