GYMFUN Overview GYMFUN (GF) is a Gymnastics Australia initiative providing young children the basic building blocks to succeed in more advanced Gymnastics but also developing kids for all future sport and physical activity. This class is designed to work towards independence, socialisation, following instructions, gross motor development, basic gymnastic skill development, building self confidence and enjoyment of physical activity. BGA has implemented it's RAINBOW levels program, which is a continuation from the day time Kindergym and Junior GYMFUN programs, to allow progression to the afternoon classes once the child goes to school. GF is also the perfect class to start in for children with no previous experience as it starts with the most basic shapes and movement patterns and progress through at a rate that suits each child individually. GYMFUN utilises the RAINBOW program to allow progression and assessment of the children through 8 levels (Red, Yellow, Pink, Green, Purple, Orange, Blue, Rainbow) where they will receive certificates with skills achieved through the term. GF is for children in Kindergarten and Year 1 at school.
GYMFUN Class Description
Each GYMFUN class will consist of fun and games, basic stretches, and circuit based gymnastic activities.. The aim of the class is to give children a fun, basic introduction to gymnastic skills delivered in a friendly, age appropriate manner. Circuits are designed to allow children to progress at their own rate with each Colour (level) having a different activity on a station. Each week the children complete three of the apparatus, covering all 6 apparatus (Vault, Bars, Beam, Floor, Tumble Track, Tramp) in a fortnight. A fun aerobic warm up is conducted to music at the start of each class and games are played at the end of each session to warm up/down and to reinforce shapes or movement patterns focused on in the lesson.
