Drop-in-Gym

Drop-in-Gym is a chance for pre-school children to play in the gymnasium in a safe and supervised way, without a formal programme. It is a great alternative to other pre-school programmes. Parent supervision is essential.

PlayGym

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
    and,
  • 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.

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.

Kiwi GymFun

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.
