This is the third instalment in Kilkenny Gymnastics Academy’s “find out more” series, introducing our Recreation Gymnastics program. You can read more about Mini Gym here and Parent & Toddler sessions here.
Recreation Gymnastics is an introduction to fundamental artistic gymnastics skills on bars, beam, vault, fast track and floor focusing on learning skills safely through a structured gymnastics program which gymnasts can experience progression through their efforts.
Classes are taught in an encouraging, non-competitive environment. Children are grouped according to age and in time on ability and train on all apparatus during the term. The emphasis is on developing a love of physical activity through gymnastics, educating in technique and safety as well as developing the flexibility, strength and coordination needed for progress to further more advanced gymnastics skills.
Gymnasts will be continually monitored for their suitability to join our competitive gymnastics program which is by invite only at the discretion of the coaching team. More information on all of the programs we have available at KGA can be found here. Please note that our invite only and competitive stream are currently under development, for the moment all classes are recreational.
We currently have lots of places available for starting recreational gymnastics in September for both beginners. Take a look at what’s on offer, looking for your child’s year of birth (and experience level if relevant). Full information including prices can be found by clicking on “Join Now” in the top right corner of the website. Places at Kilkenny Gymnastics Academy are proving to be highly sought after so don’t delay in booking your gymnasts place, all places are booked via our website.
