The program has produced numerous international gymnasts in the past 30 years, including an Olympian, and participants have the opportunity to compete at many state, national and international competitions. It promotes both physical and personal development, and allows young people to connect with those who share the same passion.
YMCA KindergymCircuses, superheroes, Olympics and other exciting themes mean there’s always fun to be found at the Y’s Kindergym, for children aged 18 months to five years. As a parent, you will appreciate the beneficial impact on your kids – such as improved coordination, problem-solving and confidence. You’ll also enjoy the opportunity to participate by offering support, boosting their confidence and seeing them learn and develop in front of your eyes.

Using balls, hoops and ribbons, this Olympic sport builds gross motor skills, balance and coordination, and you’ll enjoy the fun, friendly environment, too.
YMCA Colours Gymnastics
The Colours classes are focused on teaching the fundamental body movements and equipment skills of Gymnastics in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
Here the children are taught to a programmed assessment system which still revolves around fun. We follow a progressive colour system which is Orange, Blue and Red for the boys; Pink, Blue and Red for the girls. At the completion of a colour each gymnast receives a certificate and progresses to the next colour.
YMCA Stages Classes
The Stages classes are focused on further developing the fundamental body movements and use of equipment skills of Artistic Gymnastics in a friendly, supportive and challenging atmosphere.
This class is for children who have completed the colour assessment or have been assessed before attending classes. Gymnasts are now tested to a 1-5 stages system, and whilst the emphasis is still on enjoyment this prepares the gymnast for more difficult skills and the option to enter into Levels Gymnastics.
Gymnastics Levels (WAG, MAG)
GYMFIT is a non-assessment class for both boys and girls. GYMFIT is about fun, gymnastics, fitness, personal challenges and time to spend with other peers.
