NOVICE RECREATIONAL GYMNASTICS

Welcome to Te Wero Gymnastics recreational programme!

This class is about learning the basics of the wonderful sport of gymnastics. Your kids will learn movements, shapes and skills they can take from gymnastics into any sport.

These 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 learn 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. 

Along the way, they will develop the strength, flexibility and speed needed to put those things together in exciting ways. They will be supported to develop their focus, and learn what it is to be in 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.

Our ‘Novice Rec' programme caters for children of a range of ages and abilities. Children are initially grouped by age: 5 to 7 years; and 8 to 12 years, 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. A child is moved from the wait list when a place becomes available and an invoice will be emailed. This confirms the child is enrolled in the class starting immediately pending payment

I have enrolled - what else do I need to know:

  • Children can wear either bike pants or leggings or shorts with a fitted T-shirt or leotard.  Please ensure the clothing is reasonably tight fitting and not baggy

  • For safety reasons clothing should not have buttons, buckles or zips as these can catch on the equipment.

  • For safety reasons all long hair must be tied in a platt.

  • Shoes are not allowed on the gym floor and children wear socks or bare feet. 

  • When the children arrive they can leave their shoes, bag, etc in gymnast area.

  • A Coach will come up to waiting area to call the class - you should head straight upstairs when you arrive.  

  • If you are late please ask your child to join their group or come into the office for a staff member to take them into the main gym area.
  • Parents are requested not to come onto the floor at any time.  The waiting area is available for viewing the class your child is enrolled in.
