Recreational Gymnastics (5+ years)
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 through the Gymnastics NZ GfA Pathway Levels 1-6
Gymnasts start in open enrolment classes before progressing into invite only classes and higher levels.
See here for timetable.
GfA Pathway Levels 1-2 (previously GymFun) OPEN ENROLMENT
Our 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 3-6 (previously GymAdvance & GymPlus) INVITATION ONLY
Our invite only Programme builds on the skills learnt in the earlier levels and incorporates flexibility and strength training so that gymnasts can progress through the next level of skills. Gymnasts will work at levels 3 and above in the Gymnastics NZ GfA Pathway Programme (except Junior advanced).
All advanced invite only classes are now 1.5 hrs.
WAG (beam, bar, vault and floor)
MAG (pommel, rings, bar, floor, p-bar and vault)
Level 3+ classes are designed for gymnasts aged 8+ (MAG) & 9+ (WAG) who are ready for the next step in gymnastics skill progressions.
Gymnasts aged 9+ and in Levels 3+ also have the opportunity to compete in regional competitions through the GfA Pathway Levels Programme.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DON’T AUTOMATICALLY ROLL OVER YOUR OPEN ENROLMENT FROM TERM TO TERM!
Beacuse childrens (and families) commitments can vary so much term to term and the need to change classes either to go to an older age group or to swap to a different time are common we don't re-enrol OPEN ENROLMENT CLASSES. *THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO INVITATION ONLY CLASSES*
But don’t worry, we make it easy for you to book your class from term to term!
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
PRIORITY BOOKINGS: At the end of each term we email a PRIORITY BOOKINGS EMAIL to all our current members. You will have the option to
A) Enrol in the same class for next term OR
B) Request to change to a different class
We give you 1 week to reply to the PRIORITY BOOKINGS EMAIL and change of class requests are processed on a first come – first serve basis.
After the 1 week period we first contact anyone on a waitlist before opening General Bookings to new members.
A LOT OF OUR CLASSES FILL UP QUICKLY SO PLEASE RE-ENROL EARLY TO SECURE YOUR SPOT!
