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.
The focus of our programme is on enjoyment, participation and developing 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.
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 optional, at purpose built venues around Auckland, they are once per term and involve additional entry fees.
Our Tumbling classes are held on Thursday afternoons with a focus on acrobatic skills such as round offs, handsprings and somersaults. Throughout the year clubs around Auckland host tumbling competitions which we encourage our tumblers to participate in.
