KIDS GYMNASTICS, NOVICE/INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED TUMBLING (TRIPLE T) and TRANSITION GYMNASTICS CLASSES
Gymnastics is an amazing activity for everyone, building all the basic fundamental skills for most sports.
Classes are fun, energetic and challenging. Gymnasts participate in a variety of activities using circuits to keep every individual as active as possible. Balancing, rolling, twisting, climbing, swinging and jumping assist your child in the development of coordination, confidence, creativity, spacial awareness and self esteem. Classes incorporate games, group and partner activities, hand held apparatus and the use of all gymnastics equipment including mini tramps, trampolines, bars, rings, beams, boxes and mats. Children who have the skill level and capability to move past our recreational classes are invited to attend the transition and advanced recreational classes.
Advanced Transition Gymnastics
Our Advanced Transition Gymnastics classes are designed for children who have the skill level and capability to move past our Recreational Classes and prepare for our Advanced Gymnastics Class.
This class focuses more on specific skill technique, along with a greater emphasis on strength and core work to build a strong body required for the more challenging skills attempted throughout these classes. This class incorporates all gymnastics equipment.
Gymnasts must be assessed before enrolling in this class.
Our Advanced Gymnastics classes run for 2 hours and concentrate on greater body awareness by building core body strength to enable gymnasts to perform more complex gymnastics skills. The classes mainly focus on tumbling, vaulting and trampolining skills, however beam and bar skills are also included.
Once the gymnast can hold a strong handstand, perform a good cartwheel and keep their body tight, other more advanced skills, such as round offs, handsprings and backflips can be taught. Gymnasts must be assessed before enrolling into this class.
