Gymnastics is one of the fastest growing sports in Victoria, with over 63,488 current members and 750,000 other participants (as a the end of 2018) . It is also one of the safest sports you can do see this comparison chart. Gymnastics is often described as the foundation of all sports, with some of the physical benefits including Balance (Vestibular), Intuition (Proprioception), Strength, Agility, Power, Coordination, Control and Physical Literacy. Gymnastics classes are a great place to make new friends (develop social skills) as students are working with people outside of their normal school environment.

Children participating in Gymnastics improve their self-esteem, confidence and resilience. Participants of a gymnastics based program become very aware of their bodies and can "try their hand" at most sports and activities with a level of success. Gymnastics teaches that perseverance pays off.

We have built our facility from scratch specifically to cater for children who want the positive benefits of gymnastics, without the pressure to move into competition groups and train excessive hours. Students at Moving Monkeys typically train once a week, in groups with no more than a 1 to 8 coach to student ratio. As we are not training competition gymnastics, we are able to develop all the physical benefits of gymnastics by utilising a variety gymnastics apparatus (rather than gender specific apparatus). We try to keep all our groups as co-ed (both boys and girls are in the same group).

In addition to the traditional gymnastics apparatus, our programs incorporate other non-typical, and fun apparatus. We have a slack-line, rock climbing wall, and tunnels just to name a few, and will be adding extra things in the future...

Whilst your children are enjoying their session, you can sit back and relax in our café style viewing area, with a TV and colouring station available for the siblings; and free Wi-Fi, USB charging points, and REAL coffee available for the parents.

Fundamental Gymnastics

Prep / Grade 1

Our sessions are divided by age, so all students in the facility at any given time are at a similar developmental stage. At 4.15pm everyone is in Prep to Grade 1 at school. There may, however, be a few classes running at the same time that are split by ability level.

Students stay in the same ability group until they can consistently perform all the outcomes of that group. When they are ready for the next challenge students are awarded the certificate for that group, and moved onto the next group. This may be after a few weeks, a term, 6 months, or a year. Everyone develops at different rates, and some students will conquer particular skills faster than others.

Our classes are designed so that a new student can start at any time during the school term.

Weekday classes run from 4.15pm to 5.15pm to give you plenty of time to get here after school, or Saturday morning from 10.15am to 11.15am

Skill Development
