GYM FOUNDATIONS – WHANGAPARAOA

Gym Foundations classes are a fantastic introduction to gymnastics for children who have had limited sporting experience. The classes are based on developing the fundamental movement patterns. We are not born with the ability to perform these skills naturally, so time must be taken to allow the children to learn these skills at their own pace. Good teaching practices, set alongside a structured program is the best and most efficient way for all children to learn these lifelong skills. They are the beginning of physical literacy which help all children to further their academic and physical growth.

CLASS STRUCTURE

CLASS TIME: The classes begin with a general warm up and stretch or game. Each week the children will spend time learning and practicing the basic gymnastics shapes which are needed for the class they will attend the following term. Each week the children will do a different circuit which will focus on the fundamental movement patterns (spring, landing, swinging, manipulative skills, rotation, balance).  The beginner classes are usually attended for one term only before the children move to a recreational artistic or rhythmic class.      

CLASS SIZE: Class numbers are kept at 10 with one qualified coach per class.
