GymSkills Junior is an educational gymnastics program that incorporates elements of all gymnastics disciplines and is taught in a fun and safe environment. It is our base program here at Nunawading, and is inspired by the national ‘Gymnastics for All’ program that encourages participants to enjoy a range of apparatus and activities including trampolines, acrobatics, rhythmic, group displays and the traditional vault, bars, rings, beam and floor. We focus on the fundamental movement patterns that will help children to then progress into more advanced skills or activities. In GymSkills Junior, the games and activities are safe and encourage children to work with others, cooperate and build self-esteem.
There are many avenues a GymSkills Junior gymnast can take to develop their skills as a gymnast once the GymSkills Junior program is completed.
