18 months — 5 years
We are your early childhood gymnastics professionals! We realise that this may be your child’s first exposure to “school”, so we make a consistent attempt to have it be a positive experience. By keeping the gymnast/coach ratio low, effective instruction and care for each child is ensured. Our program includes lessons on all gymnastic apparatus modified to the special needs of the younger child.
Gross motor coordination is developed through the use of balance beams, mini trampolines, bars, rings, tunnels, spring boards and tumbling mats. Hand eye coordination is developed by attempting activities such as bean bag tosses, hoops to spin and catch, balls to throw, catch and roll. Cooperative group activities are included in our curriculum to foster an awareness of others and to encourage sharing, taking turns and developing concentration skills.
We offer the following Gymstart classes:
Kindergym - 18 months - 3 years
GymFun - 3 years
GymSkills - 4 years
JuniorGym - 5 years
The Pre-Levels Program is a step up from the beginners program and provides an introduction for children approximately 6 years and older. Emphasis is placed on dominant movement patterns used in gymnastics and all apparatus will be used during the term. This program is designed to prepare children for the ACT Club Levels Program (our General Stream). Variety is the key to keeping young children motivated and our program is always being updated to do so.
Our General Stream consists of:
The ACT Club Levels Program and Teen Program for girls
Our Gym Jets, Gym Rockets and Teen programs for boys
These classes provide a State-supported program that allows gymnasts, irrespective of their ability and circumstances, to achieve their individual goals in a flexible training environment.
The National Stream program is a competitive program. Each year children are selected to become members of this program; most of the gymnasts are selected from the General Stream. The National Stream program is available for both boys and girls.
This program is a developmental program for younger gymnasts that show natural potential for the sport. If invited into the program parents will receive a full information pack about the program.
We offer classes for adults of all ages and abilities. Come along and have fun, meet people and get some great exercise!
We offer the ACT Trampoline Levels Program as a non-competitive program for boys and girls starting at level 1 through to level 5, progressing one level per year as with the General Stream ACT Club Levels Program.

Gymfit schools program
We offer a gymnastics program that is delivered on-site in Canberra primary schools by our qualified coaches.
The principal aim of a gymnastics program in primary schools is to develop in children an enthusiasm for physical activity and to maintain and encourage that enthusiasm so they become committed to pursuing an active lifestyle. The program aims to teach fundamental movement abilities; many of the skills required for team and individual sports (hitting, catching, jumping, turning, dodging, fielding, marking) can develop from the fundamental movement abilities emphasised in our program.
The program lesson plans have been arranged as sequenced activities; however, it has the ability to be flexible and interchangeable depending on the ability of the children and the equipment available.
Most programs run for the 10-week term but can be modified to suit the needs of individual schools.
