CLASS PROGRESSION

The Academy provides Artistic gymnastic programs for children aged 2 to 5 years and also for children of school age. Prospective students commence with a paid two (2) lesson introductory course to decide if they enjoy the sport. This introductory course also provides us with the opportunity to assess your child & position them into a class of appropriate age & ability grouping.

After this 2 lesson period if the student chooses to continue, Annual Registration fees and Lesson Fees for the balance of the current term must be paid. All fees are payable in advance.

Gymnastics is a year-round sport, not seasonal like many other sporting pursuits. Beginners can commence at any time of year. Our program operates on 6 terms per year of approximately 8 lessons in duration. Classes are conducted on all school holidays with the exception of the Christmas period where we are closed for 4 weeks. Classes are not conducted on the following public holidays - Australia Day, Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Easter Monday, Anzac Day, Labour Day, Queen's Birthday and Exhibition Monday. Classes are conducted as per usual on all school "Pupil Free Days".

PLEASE NOTE:

  • In the majority of Academy classes the coach to gymnast maximum ratio is 1 : 10.
  • In our Girls & Boys 5 – 6 years beginner program & Pre-Prep Flyer girls & boys our coach to gymnast ratio is generally 1 : 8.
  • Accredited Assistant Coaches (volunteers and paid employee’s) and Gym Leaders (volunteers) are also utilised to assist our resident staff in their duties and provide valuable feedback and assistance with group management.
