Although we endeavour to keep the class times the same term to term or year to year, the class times do occasionally have to change. This depending on coach and gym availability, and class sizes. Most classes run parallel to each school term, and new enrolments are accepted throughout the term. Please note, that due to popularity some classes do have waiting lists.
There are five main gymnastic disciplines that the clubs runs.
Aerobics is a sport based on the ability to perform continuously complex and high intensity movement patterns to music, which originate from traditional aerobic dance. The routine must demonstrate continuous movement, flexibility and strength and utilisation of the seven basic steps, with a high degree of well executed elements of difficulty.
Gymnastics for All is a sport for everybody, regardless of age, gender, or ability. It is the perfect activity to prepare children for long-term participation in sport and develops vital life skills. Gym for All classes are designed for participation, and there are classes for young children, teens, and adults, which can be the perfect way to get fit and strengthen your body with fun gymnastic skills.
The term “artistic gymnastics” emerged in the early 1800s to distinguish free-flowing styles from techniques used in military training. Gymnastic competitions began to flourish in schools and athletic clubs across Europe and made a fitting return when the Olympic Games were revived in Athens in 1896.
Men’s Artistic Gymnastics is the perfect sport to help develop your sons focus and self-discipline. Modern Artistic Gymnastics has changed a lot since it first began. Men now compete on six apparatus. Floor Exercise, Pommel Horse, Still Rings, Vault Table, Parallel Bars, and the High Bar.
In 1934, an American gymnast named George Nissen, inspired by watching circus acrobats fall onto flexible safety nets and use the rebound to perform acrobatic skills, constructed the first prototype Trampoline out of canvas and rubber for inner tubes. Trampolining caught on quickly as a backyard activity, but World Championships in Trampoline were not held until 1964.
Trampoline gymnasts compete in up to four categories: Individual Trampoline, Synchronised Trampoline, Double-mini Trampoline, and Tumbling.
Women’s Artistic Gymnastics entered the Olympics in 1928, and has gone through several changes since then. Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is the perfect sport to teach your daughter co-ordination and confidence, develop creativity and contribute to her general health and fitness.
Women compete on four apparatus, Vault Table, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor Exercise.
