Recreation Class

Tuesday – 4.00pm to 5.00pm (Farmcove Location)
Thursday - 5.00pm to 6.00pm (Somerville Location)

In our recreation class your child will learn some of the basic skills of Rhythmic Gymnastics. Incorporated into our classes we use both dance and apparatus handling with gymnasts engaging with many types of equipment learnt in the sport. They will develop confidence, manipulation skills and rhythm by learning basic routines taught throughout the year in the Incentive Programme. This class is for beginner and intermediate gymnasts between the ages of 5 – 9 years old. It is recommended that all gymnasts start in the recreation class before moving into competition classes unless the head coach advises otherwise.

Pre-competition Class

Tuesday - 4.30pm to 6.00pm (Farmcove Location)

In our Pre-comp class gymnasts continue to develop their basic skills to competition level, improving their body technique and apparatus manipulation. They will learn one competition routine through the year and are required to attend a competition (to see how it works) and to compete their learnt routine in one during the year. This class trains with Level One gymnasts and they will be learning at a similar level as our competitive gymnasts in order to help them to compete as a Level One is the following year. The child's coach will decide whether the gymnast has the ability to join this class during the year.

Competition Level One

Tuesday - 4.30pm to 6.00pm (Farmcove Location)
Saturday - 8.00am to 10.00am (Farmcove Location)

Our Level One class follows the same basic structure as the Pre-comp class only with added difficulty and with extra stretching/conditioning in their Saturday Lessons. The gymnasts compete two routines in a range of Auckland competitions improving their apparatus handling and difficulties as the year progresses. The head coach will decide whether a gymnast is eligible to begin competitive Rhythmic Gymnastics when they have met the required skill level.

Competition Level 2 - 4

Tuesday 5.00pm to 7.00pm  (Farmcove Location)
Thursday 5.00pm to 7.00pm (Somerville Location)
Saturday - 8.00am to 11.00am (Farmcove Location)

The girls in these levels train hard with Stretching, Conditioning and Ballet all included within their training schedule, they must learn their three routines to a high standard (consisting of a freehand and two apparatus routines) and must improve their body technique and apparatus manipulation skills in order to get the difficulties required for competition level routines.
