Y-Gymnastics at the YMCA at the Ellerslie Recreation Centre is a fun, safe gymnastics programmes for kids aged 5 to 15 years of age. Following the YMCA Colours and Stages Programme, we are able to chart your child's progression, teach them new skills and encourage them to try new things.

Our staff are a mixture of ex-gymnasts and OSCAR qualified instructors who are dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of gymnastics while ensuring that your child has fun and goes home with a smile on their face.

We cater for all levels of Recreational Gymnasts, from beginners through to advanced.

This is a skills based programme, designed to introduce kids of any ability to the sport of gymnastics in a fun and engaging environment. The instructors will teach kids how to roll, handstand, cartwheel and much more! During lessons, we will explore a range of equipment rotating around circuits, spending time on the beams, bars, rings, floor, vaults, and trampoline. Your child’s progress is tracked through the YMCA Colours & Stages Programme, which is tested in Terms 1 & 3. There is opportunity for all Gymnasts to participate in an annual competition and an End of Year display.
