The General Gymnastics program caters for children who are 5 to 15 years of age and promotes fitness, flexibility, coordination, friendship while teaching all the fundamental gymnastics skills. Our general gymnastics program is progressive with appropriate challenges provided for all gymnasts in a safe and fun environment. Twice a year the children are offered the opportunity to showcase the skills they have learnt at our carnivals. Classes are held at both the Brisbane and Bayside venues.
- Gym Springers – 4 to 5 years of age – 1 hour per week Gym Springers are beginner level gymnasts – either new, or progressing from our Kindergym Program. Children will learn basic gymnastics skills on the Vault, Bars, Beam, and Floor along with Trampoline and Tumble-Track. Some of the basic skills they will learn include: rolls, handstands, swings, balancing skills, jumps & leaps, agility movements….and of course lots of FUN!
- Gym Tumblers – 6 to 7 years of age – 1.5 hours per week Gym Tumbler classes are still based on the same format and structure as the Gym Springers. The gymnastics skills will increase in difficulty, with a continued emphasis on safety. In addition to perfecting skills, they will also be working on cartwheels, pull-overs, board drills, and slightly more advanced jumping, leaping, agility movements.
- Novice & Open Squads – 8 years plus – 2 to 6 hours per week The Novice and Open Squads are an intermediate to advanced level squad and will continue to build on the strong foundation of the skills mastered in the Gym Springer and Gym Tumbler classes. There are 2 to 6 hours per week class options and girls may attend one or two sessions per week.
