Team Gym

Team Gym is a class for children who love performing and being part of a team. Teams of 6 – 12 children will be working together on a group display on floor, mini-trampoline, and tumbling. There will eventually be some competitions for this class as it is a programme eagerly being developed further by Gymnastics NZ. 

Recommended ages 7 – 16 years.

SportFit

SportFit is all about body conditioning, coordination, and fitness to ensure you are prepared for your chosen sport. The class covers bodyweight strength training, plyometric / jump training to increase speed and power, core strength, flexibility, and aerobic fitness. Athletes will also have an opportunity to cover some gymnastics and parkour skills such as handstands and vaults which prepares the upper body for weight bearing exercises and improved agility.

Intermediate Tumbling – Entry by Assessment Only

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.

Seniors – Let us know if you are interested

This class is designed to help develop general strength and mobility for those aged 60+. It will help to restore normal body movement for functional activities. All abilities are welcome to join in. At this stage the class is on hold due to lack of numbers, however if you and some friends are interested to get started, please contact us and let us know.

Recommended ages 60+ years.

Aerobic Gymnastics – Entry by Assessment Only

Aerobic Gymnastics is a sport based on the ability to perform continuously complex and high intensity movement patterns to music, which originate from traditional aerobic dance.
We offer competitive aerobics for those athletes who would like to work towards performing routines at competitions. Our Junior class also accommodates those who do not wish to compete but still participate in a high energy sport.

There are 3 main classes;

Juniors,
Intermediates, &
Seniors.

Recommended ages 6 – 17 years.

Cost – See our fees and timetable page HERE.

Men’s Gymnastics – Entry by Assessment Only

The Invercargill Gymnastic Club uses the National Competitive programme for our competitive male gymnasts. Within the programme are 9 levels, with the 10th level being international. Gymnasts through levels 1 – 6 use compulsory routines, and once in level 7+ they use optional routines that vary in difficulty.

Entry into these competitive classes are done by assessment only.
Typically a gymnast would have done some basic training within one of our other classes first before moving towards this competitive stream. Classes such as Kiwi GymFun or Boys Only are common entry pathways. We do occasionally have a few exceptions, though they are rare.

The men’s competitive classes are done according to ability, not age, so in some cases we would have 7 year olds training in the same class as 12 year olds.

Recommended ages 6 – 18+ years.
