active start

The Active Start gymnastics program is the ideal start to physical activity for pre-school aged children. Athletes progress at their own rate and are identified by stage of development rather than age. Equipment is adapted for age and development and athletes are introduced to activities and skills which develop social, physical and cognitive literacy.

Social Qualities

Cognitive Qualities

Gymnastics allows for the development of patterning, spatial awareness and problem solving as athletes are encouraged to explore space and equipment in a safe manner.
