Gymstar is a program is an alternative to the National Levels Program that caters for gymnasts wanting to have fun, learn the basics and new skills, participate in a structured levels progression program, and from time to time, if they want to, compete in a no stress environment without the need for lots of hours of practise.
Gymstar is the perfect program for gymnasts wanting to be involved in gymnastics but are that bit older when starting or even for those returning to the sport after a break. Gymnasts are able to move sideways in to the NLP system at anytime.
Gymstar is a mixed gender approach where gymnasts compete on 6 of the traditional "Olympic" pieces of equipment (Floor, Beam, Uneven Bars, Vault, Rings and Parallel Bars). There is a large emphasis on team participation, especially in the early levels of the program.
At Ballarat Gymsports we run the program in two categories, Recreational and Competitive. This allows for gymnasts to progress through the program at their own pace and and set goals.
