ADVANCED RECREATIONAL GYMNASTICS

Welcome to Te Wero Gymnastics recreational programme!

The Advanced Recreational class is about continuing to develop and build on the basics of the wonderful sport of gymnastics. This class is designed for children who may have already acquired the fundamentals of gymnastics, or for children who may have had minimal gymnastics experience however have been involved in other sporting pursuits, and wish to progress their skills and ability to a higher level. In Advanced Recreation, Your kids will learn to perfect movements, shapes and skills they can take from gymnastics into any sport.

As with Novice Recreational, the Advanced Recreational classes use all the gymnastic apparatus: The Vault, Bars, Floor - plus for girls, the Beam; and for boys, the Rings and Pommel Horse.

By working on the different apparatus, kids will have fun developing a fantastic awareness of the amazing human body. Our structured classes provide a safe and positive learning environment that supports kids to develop their rotations, swings, springs and statics. Other equipment such as springboards, mini-tramps and an inflatable air track are also used to help develop spatial awareness and body control.

They will develop good strength, flexibility and speed, combining their skills in even more exciting ways. They will be supported to develop their focus, and feel an important part of a team who respect and support each other. These are skills for life!

At Te Wero we aim to bring out the potential in each and every individual, and as such we continuously monitor and assess to make sure your child is in the right class. We strive to match age, ability and an individual's needs to the best suited class.

In our ‘Advanced Rec' programme, children are normally aged 7 and above, though some children may be ready at an earlier age.

Classes are grouped based on age and ability level, and will always have an 8:1 Gymnast/Coach maximum ratio - the best coaching ratio available in Christchurch.

PLEASE NOTE when registering, a child can either be enrolled in a class or placed on a wait list if the class is full:

  • enrolment in a class: a child is confirmed in a class after an invoice has been received via email and paid. The invoice sends automatically upon completing the registration process. Class placement is not confirmed until paid.
  • placed on a wait list: if an invoice is not received the child IS NOT enrolled. When on the wait list an orange "wait list" button is highlighted next to the class in the child's registration details.
