PCYC GYMNASTICS PROGRAMS

PCYC offers a wide variety of gymnastics classes to cater for all types and interests. Our goal is to keep you Active in sport and your community. Below is further information about the types of classes we offer.

Our Programs

Kindergym (1.5-3yrs)
This parent/adult assisted class is designed to give your little one a head start in life! With a focus on learning through play, each lesson will use colours, sounds and other stimulation to help your child develop their body control and strengthen brain connections through balance, sensory stimulation, tactile experience and coordination exercises. Children will learn to roll, climb, jump and swing all while having fun and socializing with parents and other children.

Junior gym (3.5-5yrs)
Junior gym is a program suitable for preschool and kindergarten aged children, bridging the gap between Kindergym and GymStar. Junior Gym offers more structure than the Kindergym program with teaching methods and activities specifically targeted to suit the developmental and cognitive needs of this age group, whilst increasing self-confidence in an independent learning opportunity.

GymStar is a recreational program for school age children, covering the basics of gymnastics and movement in a fun and friendly environment. Children will learn the basics of apparatus such as bars, beam, floor and trampoline to assist in developing skills such as balance, coordination and strength. Each term, participants will be assessed on the skills they have learnt and move up through the GymStar levels.

The skills your child will develop through our GymStar program will be useful in many other sports and areas of life beyond gymnastics! Our GymStar program is perfect for kids who want to start their gymnastics journey as well as those who just want to have fun, stay active and learn something new!

There are 4 levels:

S – Introduction to Gymnastics Foundation Skills
