General information for term 2 classes

  • Due to Queens Birthday weekend all Monday classes with have 4 classes this term. All Thursday classes will have 5 classes.
  • Pricing has been edited to reflect the shortened term. Thursday classes are $62.50 for the term, Monday classes are $50.00.
  • Please note for those with credits this will appear on your statement however will not show upon registering.
  • Some classes may have a reduced capacity to help us manage users of the facility. We apologise for this and expect to be back to normal capacity in term 3.
  • Due to cleaning and general hygiene purposes we have had to reduce the duration of some classes. This applies to all 3:30pm & 4:30pm gymnastics & tumble classes. We are confident in being able to provide as much apparatus time as possible. Time will be taken away from the warm up and cool down sections of our classes.
  • Unfortunately for this team we are asking for no spectators, this is to help keep our gathering limits below 100. We will have a separate area you will be able to wait while classes are occurring.

Te Puru Gymnastics Club offers recreational gymnastics and tumbling classes for children from 5 years old.  Classes run on Monday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm onwards.  Each class is one hour long.

All the apparatus you would expect to find in a comprehensive gymnastic class are utilised. This includes the vault, bars, balance beam, floor, and rings.  We also use small equipment to assist in developing finer motor skills. Our tumbling classes use air tracks, a double mini tramp, floor mats and more.

All our classes are open to girls and boys. We group the boys together as the focus and skills differ somewhat. These classes are for children from 5 years to 13+.

The focus of our programme is on enjoyment and encouraging a love of gymnastics and physical exercise from an early age.  Fundamental skills central to many sports are developed, including strength, power, balance, co-ordination, flexibility and overall fitness.  Children will also learn about team work and make great friendships that can last a lifetime.
Classes called 'Gymfest' are designed to prepare the children for Gymnastics Festivals called Gymfests.

We teach the gymnasts small routines which involve series of age appropriate skills on each apparatus.  The events are similar to competitions but the emphasis is on participation and personal achievement in a fun friendly environment. Participation in gymfests is fully optional, at purpose built venues around Auckland, they are once per term and involve additional entry fees. It is important to enrol in the correct class based on your child's age on 1 January so that they are taught the correct routines.

Our 'Gymskills' classes are great for beginners through to intermediate level gymnasts.  These classes teach fundamental gymnastics skills with progressions based on ability.  Children will be grouped with others of similar ability, and the class with be individually tailored to the groups.  These classes replace our extension / advanced classes but will extend these children even more than before.  Our beginners will feel comfortable too as their group will be working at a beginners level.  These classes are also grouped on age, however some flexibility is possible.

Our Tumbling classes are also held on Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays.  Tumbling is a combination of floor gymnastics and trampolining.  These classes are based on level rather than age and focus on skills and routines as well as strength and fitness training.  The intermediate level has the prerequisite of a good round-off so use that as a guide to determine the correct class.

We have a club leotard (girls) and club singlet (boys) which gymnasts are encouraged to wear to classes.  This is compulsory if they are participating in competitions and can be purchased from the office for $70.  Our clothing range also includes optional hot pants, scrunchies and soon we will offer a club hoodie too.
