Classes Running 48 Weeks a Year

Our weekly gymnastics lessons are an ongoing program with progressive development. The minimum period of enrolment is 12 active weeks (six fortnightly payments). Your enrolment will continue each year until you decide to cancel. Each year we have a four-week break for the December and January school holidays.

The necessary financial adjustments to your direct debit payment will be made during this break time. We also understand families may need to take time off during the year for other holidays, so suspensions are available.

GYM TOTS (2 years old - 4 years old)

This KinderGym class designed for 2 years old to 4 years old refines movements and further develops gross motor movement. Cognitive and social development comes into perspective. Children overcome hurdles, build confidence and work towards independence. Kids can then focus on key movements, improving core strength and working with their centre of gravity. Gym Tots learn to take turns, play with others, understand direction and start to follow instructions. Our budding gymnasts balance, swing, continue to develop upper body strength, and practice jumping. This is a parent/caregiver assisted class.


GYM KIDZ (4 years old - 5 years old)

Gym Kidz is for children from 4 years to 5 years old who are looking for more challenges. Being a little older, our Gym Kidz classes enjoy more independent exploration and discovery time with their coaches. This program refines movement, core strength and focuses on both lower and upper both strength. Listening and social skills develop as children interact with others within a group. Children learn to move their bodies in all directions with forward and backwards rolls, and develop both sides of the body through balancing exercises.
