General Gymnastics is for every body

What we do

We are a recreational Gymnastics club based in Devonport Tasmania,  accredited in the Gymnastics Australia Club10 Standard.
Our club chooses to follow the Gym Mix programme which is fully approved by the Australian Gymnastics Federation. This is a non-competitive programme in which children are encouraged to progress at their own pace while having fun. There are ten progressive levels in the programme, and certificates are awarded at each level with the option to purchase a badge at cost price. Pre-school Gym is offered for children aged 1-5 years with full parental supervision required.
Children will progress at different rates, as with other areas of development. We urge parents to support their children’s individual efforts at this, coupled with positive coaching and lots of FUN, has proven to be most successful.
Gymnastics is as much a social activity as it is a physical activity, so hopefully many friendships will be formed. General Gymnastics continually challenges children and encourages creative thinking and self-discipline. Through a sense of accomplishment, it develops self-confidence.
The skills developed make it the perfect stepping stone to other sports and activities involving co-ordination, flexibility, balance, strength and agility.
Classes work extensively on one or more Display items. Display work gives all of our gymnasts the opportunity for public performance, which increases awareness of the sport in the community. Each year, we aim to stage one major production in which every gymnast has the opportunity to perform.
