Gymnastics for All

Our General Gym program caters for girls and boys aged 5-13 years old. The program incorporates a range of activities to develop strength, flexibility, coordination, special awareness and fundamental gymnastics skills using a variety of gymnastics equipment. Children are grouped based on age, ability and previous gymnastics experience.

Beginner Classes

Beginner classes cater for girls aged 5-13 years old and boys aged 5-9, with separate classes for girls and boys. These classes are an hour long and are designed to develop balance, co-ordination and confident body movement. We place a strong focus on building self-esteem, strength and flexibility in a safe and fun environment incorporating games and circuits. Basic shapes and skills are developed over different gymnastics apparatus such as vault, bars, parallel bars, rings and floor for boys and vault, bars, beam and floor for girls. Usually gymnasts spend 12-18 months in the beginner program before progressing to an intermediate class.

Intermediate Classes

These classes are an extension from our beginner program and run for 1.5 hours. We divide the children into two age categories 6-8-year-olds and 9+ year olds, and again have separate classes for girls and boys. Classes provide the opportunity to further develop the gymnasts understanding of techniques required to perform an increasing level of skills. More emphasis is placed on developing strength and flexibility in these classes so that they can perform more difficult skills safely.

Advanced Classes

These classes (for girls only) are aimed at gymnasts who are 9+ years old and who need more of a challenge. These classes run for 2 hours. Emphasis is placed on developing more complex gymnastics skills and the strength and flexibility required to achieve these skills. Gymnasts will be identified as ready to move to these classes by their coach and the coaching co-ordinator.
