These classes introduce children to gymnastics in a fun and exciting way. With a focus on a different piece of equipment /apparatus each lesson, children will build up their fundamental movement skills by balancing across beams, swinging on bars, jumping off boxes, and rolling down wedges. To help encourage your child’s imagination and social skills, each week, we run a different theme with songs and group warm-ups. Classes have a variety of free time and structure in which children can explore the equipment supported by their caregiver.
This is a skills-based programme, designed to introduce kids of any ability to the sport of gymnastics in a fun and engaging environment. The instructors will teach kids how to roll, handstand, cartwheel and much more! During lessons, we will explore a range of equipment rotating around circuits, spending time on the beams, bars, rings, floor, vaults, and trampoline. Your child’s progress is tracked through the The Y Colours Programme, which they work through at their own pace. There is opportunity for Colours Gymnasts to participate in an annual competition and end-of-term displays.
Once your child has progressed through the The Y Colours Programme, they will move on to our Stages Programme. They’ll learn more advanced skills such as dive rolls, round-offs and walk-overs. Children will rotate around different apparatus circuits, including beams, bars, rings, vault and floor. They will spend time developing and perfecting their skills and learning new ones. These classes are designed to provide your child with a challenge in a fun environment. There is opportunity for Stages Gymnasts to participate in an annual competition and end-of-term displays.
