Y-Gymnastics Mini

These classes introduce children to gymnastics in a fun and exciting way. With a focus on a different piece of equipment /apparatus each lesson, children will build up their fundamental movement skills by balancing across beams, swinging on bars, jumping off boxes and rolling down wedges. To help encourage your child’s imagination and social skills, each week we run a different theme with songs and group warm-ups. Classes have a variety of free time and structure in which children can explore the equipment supported by their caregiver. Classes are 45minutes long and require a 1:1 Parent to Child ratio.

Y-Gymnastics Colours & Stages

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 End of Year display.


Y-Active is a multi-sport program that encourages kids to develop physical and soft skills through movement and sport. This program creates a fun, safe and engaging environment for kids of all ages and physical ability with the aim to expose a variety of sports to the group. This allows them to express themselves openly and find their own passion and interest. Each week, the class will focus on a different movement/skillset, which will tie into a specific sport for the week.
