WHAT IS BEGINNERS GYMNASTICS?

The beginner classes are for children aged 5-7 years who have either never been in the gym before or who may need to gain some confidence in a sporting environment. The classes are based on developing the fundamental movement patterns which are important for both gymnastics and any other sports that your child might take up in the future.

These skills are:

* Safe Landings (imperative for every sport and in play)

* Spring (learning how to jump properly on and off all different heights and surfaces)

* Rotation (forwards, backwards, sideways, over, under and through)

* Balance (on different heights and surfaces while doing different shapes and movements)

* Locomotion (all different types of body movements and in all directions)

* Swing (grip strength as well as fast, slow and in all directions)

* Manipulative Skills (hand eye coordination and hand held equipment skills)

These are a set of recurring movements that form the building blocks for more complex skills in all sports and life. 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 rate. 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.

The children will work intensively on activities that build these patterns for the first 6 weeks of term and will move into gymnastics based activities for the remainder of the term.

Beginner classes are a fantastic introduction to gymnastics and other sports for children who have had limited sporting experience.

CLASS STRUCTURE

The classes begin with a general gymnastics based warm up and stretch. 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. The first 6 weeks of the beginner’s class will be spent in the same area of the gym where the children will get to know their surroundings without being overwhelmed by the busier areas in the gym. Each week the children will do a different circuit which will focus on the fundamental movement patterns (above). From week 7 till the end of each term the group will start using the other apparatus - Beam, bar, tramp, ropes, vault, rings etc. The beginner classes are usually attended for one term only before the children move to a recreational artistic or rhythmic class.

The group comes together at the end for the gymnast of the day sticker.
