Junior Gymnastics – 2 years old to 6 years old
As an introduction to gymnastics, we offer classes that have been developed to teach children basic gymnastics skills in a fun, encouraging and engaging environment.
Junior Gymnastics combines games, music, structured and progressive activities that focus on Dominant Movement Patterns (DMP). The Dominant Movement Patterns are Spring, Rotation, Statics, Landings, Locomotion and Swing. These DMP’s have been developed to provide a solid foundation for physical development in children. The Junior Gymnastics Program has been designed to cater for all ability levels, whilst still maintaining a strong emphasis on fun.
The program includes use of large equipment, small equipment and hand held apparatus to develop fine and gross motor skills. The Junior Gymnastics Program will help children to develop their balance, coordination and spatial awareness skills as well as teaching those important values of discipline, goal setting and team work. The program allows all children to feel a sense of achievement in a safe and fun environment.
All Junior Gymnastics Classes include a warm up, flexibility and strength activities, gymnastics shapes and structured circuits.
