Mini Movers & Smarties (12 months to 2 years) - Adult Assistance Required
These programs are designed to introduce young children into the gymnastics environment safely. The classes run for 45 minutes and adult participation assistance of one carer per child is required.
During the 45 minute program, each child learns how the body moves; children will have opportunity to swing, spring, balance, run, jump and rotate. Throughout the class parents are required to provide assistance by encouraging the child and working with the coach to stay as focused as possible considering their young age.
The interaction with other children of the same age group is just one of the benefits of starting gymnastics at this age. Learning to take direction and following the coach's instruction in a small group is invaluable.
Gymnastics is more than physical development, it is also about mental development and exposing children to core strengthening exercises without them even realising it. The environment is fun, safe and activities are age appropriate.
Program Prerequisites – Must be walking
Jelly Tots (3 years) – No Parent Assistance Permitted
These programs are designed to introduce children to a safe, independent gymnastics experience. The classes run for 45 minutes and parent / carer participation is not required.
During the 45 minute program boys and girls are introduced to gymnastics skills that are tailored to their age and ability with a ratio of six children to one trained leader. We have specially designed age appropriate circuits set up as well as exposing them to the full gymnastics apparatus including bars, beams, trampolines, foam pits and wall bars.
The interaction with other independent children who are participating for a full 45 minutes following the instruction of a qualified coach we feel separates us from other activities offered for children of this age.
Gymnastics is more than physical development, it is also about mental development and exposing children to core strengthening exercises without them even realising it. Although the environment is fun and safe, we also understand that expecting a 3 year old to separate from their parent for 45 minutes can sometimes be difficult, for this reason we have spent years developing a system that works.
Program Prerequisites – No gymnastics experience required.
Jelly Beans (4 years) – No Parent Assistance Permitted
These programs are designed to introduce children to a safe, independent gymnastics experience. The classes run for 60 minutes and adult participation is not required.
During the 60 minute program boys and girls are introduced to gymnastics skills tailored to their age and ability with a ratio of eight children to one trained leader. During these classes the children will be extended to experiment with more challenging exercises and activities whilst continuing to improve their co-ordination and foundation skills which will progressively develop them for the next program.
All classes will include the use of apparatus such as bars, beams, trampolines, wall bars and rope climbing. All activities are designed to be safe and fun whilst encouraging the 4 year old to extend themselves by encouraging them to try new things. The confidence gained in this program can be a great foundation for other sports in the future and it all begins with the skills learned in this program. Gymnastics is a unique sport that involves weight bearing through all joints assisting with development of bone density and strengthening of the core.
Program Prerequisites - No gymnastics experience required!
