5 years plus Gymnastics Programmes
We run gymnastics classes for all ages and stages from 5 years to adults, from beginners to more advanced gymnasts. Classes at all levels help participants develop co-ordination, strength, flexibility, fitness and confidence, as well as heaps of awesome gymnastics skills.
Classes start with a warm-up including the key gymnastics shapes and positions before gymnasts separate into small groups to work on their gymnastics skills across all apparatus.
Our programme runs in three levels:
- GYMFUN - beginner level
- GYMADVANCE - GfA Pathway levels 1 & 2
- GYMPLUS - GfA Pathway levels 3+
Each term we offer fun events for all gymnasts to keep everyone motivated and to show off their successes.
GymFun Programme - Term 4 2021
Our GymFun programme centres on teaching all beginner level gymnastics skills in a fun environment. After a group warm-up gymnasts work with their coach for the term on a range of skills and drills at each apparatus. Gymnasts work at the age and ability level specific to the class they are in.
To ensure gymnasts are always on the go, a circuit approach is used with each activity designed to develop the strength, co-ordination and flexibility needed to achieve at this level. Skills are broken down to make the technique easier to learn.
GfA Pathway Levels Programme - Term 4 2021
Our GymAdvance programme builds on the skills learnt in GymFun and incorporates flexibility and strength training so that gymnasts can progress through the next level of skills. Gymnasts will work at levels 1 and 2 of the Gymnastics NZ GfA Pathway programme.
New members aged 10+ may join directly into this programme. Those aged 9 and below will start in GymFun and be moved through to GymAdvance once they are ready.
