The syllabus has been created around curriculum from British Gymnastics, the UK’s National Governing Body for Gymnastics. It is their mandate to develop young gymnasts and support those with the ability to compete at a high level.
Upon completion of the programme we expect each child to perform their routines with a great deal of confidence and joy. Each term ends with a gymnastics performance and their level assessment.
3 – 5 years
Children can now participate in this class by themselves. In this programme there is more opportunity for the children to develop their gymnastic skills, (ie. cartwheels, handstands and a range of rolls). Strength and flexibility training is a major focus, as well as eye-hand and eye-foot coordination in an atmosphere of fun and supportiveness. These form the basis of the fundamental movements to be able to perform a higher gymnastic skill set. At this age children will be introduced to the Gym4kids badge scheme where they will work towards achieving their first badge levels.
