Here at Gymsports we utilise the foundation structures established by Gymnastics Australia for the principles of movement with very young Children.
Gymsports is proud to be able to display our "As Approved By Gymnastics Australia" stamp which links in with the Launchpad program of activities.
AKTIVE KIDZ “Possums” is for those from walking to 4years and is a semi structured path of discovery in the gym which strongly encourages parents to participate alongside their child.
GYM BEGIN is the next step for those children 4 to 5years who are looking for that more structured approach, they receive instructions well and are not reliant on the parent to achieve class goals.
For those new to the sport or for those returning who are not, for a number of reasons, wanting to be involved in the serious side of the sport, we have multiple programs available.
GYMSTAR is a program that caters for gymnasts wanting to have fun, learn new skills, participate in a structured levels progression program, and from time to time compete in a no stress environment without the need for lots of hours of practice. The program is a mixed gender team approach where gymnasts compete on 6 of the traditional "Olympic" pieces of equipment.
TEAM GYM is Victoria’s newest gymsport, and here at Ballarat Gymsports we are the only club in Ballarat assisting with it's development. Based on the simple European philosophies encompassing, Fun, Energy, Team Work, Display and Sportsmanship, teams of up to 12 gymnasts go through their combined paces of skill and talent.
TRAMPOLINE is for those who love to bounce and fly. We have a full sized competition trampoline alongside a 7 metre long tumbling tramp in to a large foam pit allowing for some amazing skill development. What better way to ensure they know what they are doing when at home on the backyard tramp.
Gymsports has a very large and strong competitive program for Boys (Level 1 to Level 7) and Girls (Level 1 to Level 10). Our gymnasts have, and still are competing in Metro and State Championships whilst supporting the Western Regional Club alliances that make country clubs strong.
The Australian National Levels Programs for both boys and girls comprise of 10 levels (10 being the highest). Gymnasts are able to be assessed and move through the system by our own Nationally qualified Judges or at specific competitions throughout the year.
Gymsports has the largest crew of highly qualified coaches in Ballarat, some with many years of international, national and state level competition and/or representation, plus we are supported by key personnel in the State Technical Committees for the sports.
