Gymnastics at The Y (formerly known as YMCA) emphasizes fundamental movement skills for children aged 1.5 – 12 years. This helps in the development of your child's balance, coordination, strength, flexibility and spatial awareness, all these core motor skills are essential in gymnastics, but also in any other sport your kids choose to do.
Each gymnastics class builds on the skills learned in the previous week and tracked by our Colours and Stages development programme, so your child will make steady progress with The Y gymnastics.
Here is what we have to offer:

Ideal for growth and development, classes consist of activities such as songs, rhymes, hand skills, and interactive play. Focus on fundamental movement patterns through gymnastics-based activities helps build confidence and body awareness in an interactive and social environment. A great opportunity to introduce your little one to climbing, swinging, balancing, and so much more. Each week has a fun new theme!
A great transition from our Discovery Play Preschool Classes. Here, our experienced gymnastics instructors will guide your kids through a more structured way of learning the fundamental skills of gymnastics. This includes circuit rotations of various apparatus, for example, our beam, vault, double mini tramp, floor, and rings/bar. We help guide your children on the best, fun, and safest way to show off their skills.
These classes are perfect if you are either new to gymnastics or are wanting to improve your gymnastics skills, in a fun & recreational way. Each term is dedicated to different themes i.e., skills testing, gymnastics competition, badge testing, and our End of Year Showcase.
For years The Y has provided a safe and secure environment, where kids can just be’ and enjoy their time with us. We want to support every parent by not only being a fun place for your kids to be, but also a safe haven where kids’ development is supported and learning is recognised.
The Y is Aotearoa’s first and only accredited organisation through the Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF). We are proud to lead the children’s workforce as a child-safe organisation. Find out more.
