With the Christmas time fast approaching, we often get many questions as to where the best places for Santa and his elves to find home gymnastics equipment, grips or leotards that aren’t always available in Santa’s workshop. So we have put together a Santa’s Little Helper list to help them out. The websites listed below are tried and trusted websites, recommended by our gymnasts and their families as well as the staff at Sugarloaf Gymnastics.
Sugarloaf Gymnastics Merchandise
Sugarloaf Gymnastics Girls Leotards
This year we have some very cool special edition leotards for sale. These leotards are in limited supply and will not be ordered again, they cannot be held and are on offer on a first come basis. Leotards range from €45 – €52.50 (depending on size). Leotards will be available to buy in the gym from Monday 10th December – not online.
Also available are our black and red Sugarloaf training leotards, priced at €42.50 – €49.
All leotards are custom made by Quatro, the official leotard partner of both Gymnastics Ireland and British Gymnastics, for Sugarloaf Gymnastics. Size charts can be found here. Currently we only provide sleeveless leotards as these are the most popular style.
Sugarloaf Gymnastics Hoodies, Leggings, Shorts & Back Packs
We have newly designed hoodies available this Christmas! Trueform will now be the supplier of our hoodies and have custom made this fantastic gear! Price €40 and for an additional €5 the hoody can be personalised with your gymnasts name. A limited stock will be held in the gym but they can be ordered online through Trueform and posted to you – click here to purchase from Trueform. Please note these will not be available until early December.
We have black 3/4 length leggings and hipster shorts currently in stock in either velour or lycra, priced at €27.50 – €33.50 (leggings) and €20.50 – €25 (shorts).
Back Packs are also in stock priced at €20
Availability of Sugarloaf Gymnastics Merchandise
All can be purchased in the gym. Hoodies will be available online via Trueform. We are awaiting confirmation date for arrival of hoodies. As before we will have dates and times of our pop up shop where staff will be selling gear – keep an eye out for these dates. Please note that outside these times it may be a little bit more difficult as our coaches are teaching class and heavily involved in preparing for our very exciting Christmas Shows. You can drop us an email to arrange purchasing items if you wish. Please note that is is cash sales only in the gym, no cards accepted.
We recommend the following for boys and girls leotards.
GymGym.ie (Irish owned & based, supplier of many brands)
Home Gymnastics Equipment
Often we are asked about gymnastics mats, bars and beams to use at home. There are many different types, it really depends on your own preference and budget. Please be very wary of asking us advice on which is best in class as lots of little ears are around. If you have a query, please email us, we may be able to advise.
Other Gymnastics Apparel
For Bar grips, wrist bands, grips bags etc. Each website has it’s own sizing for grips. Please note that only the Competitive Advanced Recreation and Squad groups currently require dowel grips (which are more expensive). Each website has it’s own sizing charts available for you to determine the size.
We hope that you, Santa and his elves find this list useful. If you have any other suggestions please do let us know.
