In competitive gymnastics there is only ever one winner, children learn “for me to win, you have to lose”.
Studies show that the failure they experience results in many children dropping out. A non competitive class allows children to experience success through their personal best, resulting in high self esteem and better friendships.
Please bring your child dressed ready to move. Leotard or T-shirts and shorts or tights are perfect with bare feet. Long hair should be tied up with soft scrunchies to avoid injury.
CHILDREN LEARN AT THEIR OWN PACE
Some students will be at different levels in the same class. Coaches can tailor classes to suit the individual students within a class. Beginners often learn from watching other more experienced students in class.
STAYING TO WATCH?
Recreational Classes are generally drop off classes. You are,most welcome to watch but please do so quietly. Hearing many voices when listening to instructions makes it difficult to absorb all that is being said by the coach. Phone calls are to be taken outside during class but feel free to take pictures or videos of your own child.
Annual Registration Fee: There is a $50 Annual Registration fee for each child enrolled.
MINI STARS 24-36 Months In this program, Parents assist children throughout the class, parental involvement is gradually decreased as the child’s confidence increases. Basic gymnastics instruction helps to improve listening skills and ability to follow instructions. This program also helps with the sometimes difficult task of separating from Mummy and Daddy. Parents will also enjoy the benefit of social interactions with other mums and dads.”
