IGC Information Folder

The Invercargill Gymnastic Club maintains an information folder which contains all relevant information to do with the club.

It is hoped that through this Information Folder, the IGC Executive can keep in touch with all Members of the IGC and provide accessible and understandable documentation which covers all areas of the IGC. This may include foundation information, day-to-day running information, class information, enrolment information, codes of conduct, role descriptions, and all IGC policies, procedures, processes and plans. By making this information readily available to everyone, those who wish to learn more are able to gain a deeper understanding of how the IGC works, while those who need clarification on a specific topic are able to quickly and easily find the up-to-date answers.

NOTE: This folder is a work in progress, and as such is still incomplete.
This table of contents is only a draft, and currently only has the
completed and printed documents listed here.
The rest is still to come.

PlayGym introduces pre-school children to the basics of controlled movement in a fun way.
Each term focuses on skills such as;

  • safe landings
  • jumping
  • balancing
  • rotations
  • swinging
  • different forms of locomotion

The PlayGym programme is aimed at children aged 2½ years, up to school age. Younger supervised siblings are welcome to join in. Parent participation is essential.

Recommended ages 2.5 – 4 years

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Kindy Gym

Kindy Gym is a step further from PlayGym. While the programme still focuses on similar skills to PlayGym, the Kindy Gym programme is aimed at children aged 4 years, up to school age. Parents can sit to the side in these sessions to watch while the coach instructs the children through various circuits and activities.
Younger supervised siblings are welcome to stay off to the side and play.

Recommended ages 4 years only.

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Kiwi GymFun

The Kiwi GymFun programme is designed to teach gymnastic skills in a graduated, enjoyable way. The programme progresses through 6 levels and children receive a badge and certificate at the end of term if they pass their current level.

Recommended ages 5 – 6 years.

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Incentive Awards

The Incentive Awards programme runs through 7 levels in artistic gymnastics. The gymnasts are able to attend a testing day only at the end of term 3 due to the difficulty level, where if they pass their level they will receive their badge.

The Incentive Awards are split into two age groups and an advanced class;
Incentive Awards Juniors = 7 – 9 years
Incentive Awards Seniors = 10 – 16 years 
Incentive Awards Advanced = Gymnasts in level 4+

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Gymsports – Entry by Assessment Only

Gymsports levels range from Iron to Elite. These classes are for those who want to do competitions that are not as intense as the national competitive stream. These classes are for boys and girls.
Entry into these classes are by request of coach evaluation only.

Recommended ages 7 – 16 years.

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Boys Only (Rec)

Boys Only is a recreational class for boys where they do not need to feel outnumbered by girls which can occasionally happen in some of the other classes. The boys only class works on a simplified version of the national competitive men’s programme. If they develop advanced enough, there is the possibility to be assessed by a coach to enter into the main competitive programme. 

Recommended ages 7 – 12 years.

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Intermediate Tumbling

Children in this class will learn a range of floor skills, and aim to develop tumbling passes.
The tumbling programme progresses through 10 levels, and children receive a certificate and ribbon at the end of the term if they pass their current level. This is a great class to learn skills such as aerials and walkover that can be performed for dance classes.
The intermediate class is for levels 5 – 10. 

Recommended ages 8 – 14 years.

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.
