Gymnastics & Kindergym

Gymnastics StepsGymnastics is the ideal way to tumble, jump and spin into fun and fitness at your local YMCA! Gymnastics truly is the program to help children develop in body, mind and spirit.

We offer a range of gymnastics classes for children from the age of 15 months. Our programs encourage children to participate in a safe, structured and child friendly environment, and offers age and skill based progression from kinder gym through to competitive National Levels classes.

Jamboree Heights YMCA also offers services and programs that cater for children from 10 months of age.

  • Gym Bubs and Gym Tots (walking to 4 years)

    YMCA Gymnastics - Gym-totsChildren attend with a parent (or other adult) for a stimulating 45 minute movement and play experience with opportunities to explore and develop their physical abilities. Activities include gross motor skills such as running, jumping, hopping, hanging, climbing, rolling balancing and swinging, plus many finer motor activities to stimulate foot/hand/eye co-ordination, all in a safe environment. Children benefit by developing self-confidence, body awareness and body control while laying good foundations of balance, agility and general physical co-ordination.

  • Mini Gym (4 - 5 years)

    This program is an extension of Gym Tots except without parent participation. Mini Gym caters for children 4 to 5yrs of age. The program helps the development of motor control including coordination and balance, increased body awareness and enhanced social development. For e.g. learning to share, take turns and the ability to follow instructions. This is also a great help.

  • Prep (5-6 years)

    This program is designed especially for children attending prep at school. It is an extension of the Mini Gym program but is not quite as advanced as our Step 1 and 2 classes. Prep focuses on balance, co-ordination and the basics skills of gymnastics. This class prepares children for our STEPS program. Read More +
