Primary School Programmes

Promoting functional fitness and increased responsibility

This Week's Theme: [theme]

Energetic gymnastic classes including tumbling, vaulting and bar activities to develop core strength, balance, coordination and teamwork challenges to boost confidence.

Primary School classes focus on progressing strength, balance and coordination through energetic exercise and collaborative fun. Tumbling, vaulting, obstacle challenges and aerobic activities continue to boost physical fitness and a ‘can-do’ attitude, which encourage self-confidence and positive self-esteem.

Themed, coach-led classes promote independence and teamwork by developing ideas and innovation through social stimulation. Your child is encouraged to discover healthy ways to seek out information, make positive choices and embrace their individuality. As they find themselves in situations demanding increased responsibility, Balance & Beam classes support them in transitioning into adulthood and progressing through education.

There are three Primary School Programmes to choose from. All classes are age-appropriate to ensure your child benefits from activities tailored to their age and development.

Junior Jacks

6 to 8 Years

The Junior Jacks Programme encourages children of all abilities to develop their confidence and physical exercise skills in a structured, playful learning environment. Qualified coaches challenge your child to push their boundaries and encourage them to celebrate all successes.

The age bracket for Junior Jacks classes is purposely kept low for the comfort and confidence of the children.

Energetic gymnastics-led activities develop physical strength, balance, coordination and coherence. Interactive fun and stimulating imagination are vital in motivating children at this age. A holistic approach blending physical development and mental wellbeing embeds all learning and supports a wholesome attitude to learning.

Jumping Jacks

6 to 12 Years

The Jumping Jacks Programme supports children who are ready to take on the challenge of higher learning in gymnastics-led activities. Younger Balance & Beam members will see a big difference in the structure of classes with more gymnastics-based skills, including line tumbling and stretching to flex out their muscles.

This class is also suitable for new entry level gymnasts. Confidence in ability and individual self-esteem are high in these classes because children are invested in developing their physical and mental skills and can see the benefits. 

Lively physical conditioning exercises and adventurous activities are encouraged as your child is less afraid of bumps and bangs in pursuit of perfecting their moves. Collaborative teamwork and personal development run hand in hand as the intensity of gymnastics increases.
