Gymnastic Programs (Glengowrie)
YMCA Gymnastics at Glengowrie offers preschool, recreational and competitive gymnastics and trampoline classes for children and teens of all skill levels.
Designed for participants with varying abilities, stages 1 - 5 introduce students to fundamental gymnastic skills in an environment that is safe, fun and focused on participation. Students develop skills of body control, coordination and self-confidence – a great foundation for competitive gymnastics and an ongoing active lifestyle. Students will be introduced to gymnastic apparatus including the floor, vault, beam, bars, rings and trampoline.
Our competitive program provides an opportunity for students who wish to train and compete in the Australian National Levels Program at local, regional and national events. Competition squads require an increased level of commitment from the gymnast and their families. Gymnasts are required to attend set training hours every week, and must be available for competitions on weekends.
Athletes perform a series of aerial skills without interruption or pause between each skill. Beginner, intermediate and advanced classes are available and students will be placed in to classes depending on the student’s ability and age.
Team Gym combines parts of tumbling, mini tramp and dance to create an exciting team competition event. You get to flip, roll, jump and dance with your friends. Team Gym performances demonstrate effective team work, good technique and spectacular acrobatic skills.
