Manawatu Gymsports Inc
Recreational Gymnastics (Gym For All)
These classes are for school aged children who wish to begin or develop their gymnastic skills. In these classes we deliver the GymSports NZ programme called Kiwi Gym Fun, which lets children work toward a progressive badge programme that is tested every other term. We also offer Tumbling, a class dedicated to tumbling skills, and three Advanced Recreational classes that are by invite only, and two Rhythmic classes. Recreational gymnasts are also invited to trial for Team Gym later in the year. Finally we offer a Recreational Competitive programme known as Excel.
Pre-School Gymnastics (PlayGym)
These classes are for preschool aged children. These classes deliver the GymSports NZ PlayGym programme, which is a chance for young children to explore, play and move with confidence, in a positive and encouraging environment.
Competitive Gymnastics (WAG & MAG)
Manawatu Gymsports has a proud history of success in girls artistic gymnastics at both regional and national level and have recently begun to grow a boys programme. Girls and boys artistic gymnastics is offered by invitation only and most gymnasts are selected from the recreational programmes.
Trampoline classes cater to school aged children and above. Gymnasts use the trampoline and double mini tramp to build skills at their own pace, in a safe and supportive environment.
This class caters for ex-gymnasts, mixed martial arts participants, free runners and those that are just interested in having a go. This is a supervised but fun and unstructured class, suitable for participants 18 years and above.
