MINI NINJA – WHANGAPARAOA
We pride ourselves on running a program that highlights healthy movement and fun. Our classes are designed to develop each child’s motor skills, which are a prerequisite for reading and writing, through exploring dominant movement patterns and providing physical challenges in a fun-filled session for 4 year olds.
The Mini Ninja classes are great for kids who are happy to work away from their parents in order to gain some independence before they start school. Mini Ninja’s is a fun, fast paced, action packed program where children will jump, swing, climb, roll, learn safe landings and push themselves to improve their skills. The classes are best suited for very active children who are confident away from their parents, like to explore through movement and enjoy challenging themselves. They will use the gymnastics equipment around the gym but not in a classical gymnastics style. The skills that the children will learn will not always be specific to artistic gymnastics but will always be complimentary to our other gymnastics programs.
In order to keep the structure of the Mini Ninja program the same, we ask all parents to sit upstairs in the viewing gallery and not in the gym at any time please. Please Note: All children who attend Mini Ninja classes must have done at least one term in a Circuit class and must be 4 years old before attending their first class.
WARM UP: Each class begins with a Mini Ninja game to warm up all the muscles
NINJA TIME: The children will work on the skills required to complete a mini obstacle course each week. The course will increase in difficulty and size over the term and the end of term goal is to complete the circuit using the different landing, swinging, jumping and balancing skills that are specific to this program. The first few weeks will be based on teaching safe landings, rolls, balances and hanging. Once the children have worked on these important fundamantals they will start to put them into a mini circuit. At the end of each term the Ninjas will complete a SUPER course which incorporates each of the skills they have learnt during the term.
TO FINISH: The children all come together at the end for a high five and a stamp
CLASS SIZE: Class numbers are kept at 8 with one qualified coach per class.
