Our Programs

Gymnastics is a sport that is not just for a year, but for your whole life. What do we mean by that? Gymnastics is known to not only improve physical aspects associated with sport, but also enhance many aspects used in everyday life. Benefits include flexibility, coordination, body awareness, physical strength, balance, self-motivation, discipline, cognitive learning, social skills and work ethic. Each program aims to give your child the most of the benefits associated with gymnastics, specific to that age and level.

Beginner Gymnastics

KinderGym

Once your child has reached the stage of being able to listen and actively follow basic instructions, they can come try the KinderGym class. In this parent-participant class, you are right there on the floor guiding your child along a multitude of different activities, sharing in their joy of learning in their early years. KinderGym is the first stepping stone to allowing children to build their independence and overcome personal obstacles through learning and play. KinderGym aims to improve skills such as coordination, balance and strength in a fun, colourful environment.

Prep Gym

Prep gym is a transition class aimed to aid in the changeover from play-based Kindergym to real gymnastics. This class is designed for children who have actively progressed through Kinder Gym, or, are new to gymnastics but are confident in being on the floor by themselves. Prep Gym starts to introduce children to basic gymnastic skills and movements whilst still incorporating play and having fun. “Preppies” participate in a range of activities on various apparatus, improving not only the physical aspects associated with gymnastics but also learning how to interact with their coaches and fellow peers. This class also encourages independent learning and discovering how to overcome personal challenges.

After Prep

The After Prep class is designed for children who have the maturational and skill development required to work more formally at a young age. This class expands on the skills learnt in the Prep Gym class and instils in children the work ethic required in the next stage of competitive-style classes. Peer interaction is taken to a new level in this class with children at times needing to work together in activities to achieve common goals. This allows children to not only develop their teamwork skills, but also be taught of responsibility and the role they play when working in a group environment.

General Gymnastics

It is never too late to start gymnastics! The general gymnastics class is perfect for primary school-aged children who have never done gymnastics but would like to start. This class introduces boys and girls to basic gymnastic skills and movements across multiple apparatus. General gymnastics aims to challenge and improve their coordination, core strength, body awareness and movement patterns which are not only useful in gymnastics but a multitude of other sports and life activities.
