Baby gym for 10 months to 3 year olds
Sessions are for crawlers to 3 yr olds. They allow children to explore the equipment at their own place. Bright colours, different textures and a relaxed atmosphere encourage parents, caregivers and children to have fun together. There will be songs with actions and activities to encourage the development of eye tracking and fine motor skills.
Play gym for 2 ½ to 5 year olds
This is a more structured class than the tumble tots. The class starts with a group warm up activity, after a brief explanation of the circuits, children are able to have 5 or 6 turns on each circuit before moving around to the next group of apparatus. Focus is on taking turns and following instruction, we cross mid-lines and develop neural pathways in the brain. Parent/caregiver participation is required for this class.
Gym Fun for 5 to 8 yr olds
Perfect for beginners or gymnasts who are a little out of practice. Each week the class focuses on building strength and flexibility. Cartwheels, handstands and backward rolls will be developed, plus the gymnasts get time on the apparatus which include the bars, rings, beam, vault and tumble track.
Gym Minis for 7 to 10 years
Dive rolls, walkovers and one-handed cartwheels will be some of the floor moves we will be working towards, along with the vault, beam & bar. Children are split into ability based groups, so no previous experience necessary.
Gym stars for 9 and over.
All gymnasts must be able to perform a cartwheel, a handstand, splits and bridges before starting this class. Flic flacs, handsprings and somersaults are some of the skills we learn in this class.
Junior Tumbling Class
These sessions are for boys and girls who want to concentrate on learning float cartwheels, round offs, walkovers, front handsprings and some flic flacks and side aerials. We don't use all bar or beam in this class, just the mats, inflatable tumble track and sometimes the mini tramp. Lots of gymnasts choose to do this class as well as a gym class.
Senior Tumbling Class
We build up strength and flexibility to master aerials (no-handed cartwheels), round off flic flacks, whips, back saltos and heaps more. These classes are great for boys, cheerleaders and dancers who want to flip and tumble, this session is great for those wanting to do two classes week. Gymnasts are expected to stay for 15 min at the end of the session to pack away the equipment.
Assisted learning sessions are for 5 – 10 yr olds
These classes cater for children with a range of learning needs who would prefer smaller classes and the option of a parent or caregiver to go around with them. We will teach rolls, handstands, cartwheels and use the beam, trampoline and bar, teaching skills appropriate to each child and their ability.
