Gymnastics Victoria has many great events for schools to participate in and offer training, support and programs for teachers.
GymSkills is the third of the three sequential programs within LaunchPad and is specifically designed for children aged between 8 - 12 years old.
As children develop their movement skills, we can begin to introduce activities that may be more specific to certain sports. Now that’s not to say that GymSkills gets all serious and competitive. One thing that GymSkills definitely isn’t, is a range of repetitive drills and rigorous fitness training. Yes, kids involved in GymSkills will improve their fitness but keeping fun in the mix is a priority. After being involved in GymSkills, children will have had the opportunity to increase their confidence and competence in movement; preparing them for a wide range of other sports and activities.
