CLASSES AT DENMARK GYMNASTICS

For all enrolment enquiries - please email:

dengymnastics@gmail.com


Denmark Gymnastics Club offers numerus programs both recreational and competitive across a variety of days and times to suit all ages, fitness levels and experience.

Toddler and Kindy Gymnastics:

The Toddler and Kindy gym classes focus on movement-based activities such as running, jumping, balancing and swinging – all core fundamental movements. These activities assist a child’s development of co-ordination, strength and confidence in a fun and safe environment.


Toddler gym requires parent participation at all times. It also involves group time on the floor, guided discovery through different weekly course set up, followed by free exploration with parents around the gym.

Kindy gym involves no parent participation. This is a more structured class and focuses on the basics of gymnastics. Children must be confident enough to participate without parents on the floor.

Ninja Boys Gymnastics:
Our Ninja class comprises of gymnastics foundations but is focused on completing obstacle courses rather than routines on each apparatus. All our recreation classes will have an open day at the end of each term where parents can come and watch the progress their child is making in class.

Recreational Gymnastics: Beginner, Gym 4 Fun
The recreational programs (non-competing athletes) offer progression through skills such as handstands, cartwheels and forward rolls in a non-competitive environment. These classes develop co-ordination, flexibility and strength. Participants have full use of all apparatuses including beams, bars, floor and vault (Girls) – high bar, rings, pommel, p-bars, floor and vault for boys.

Homeschool Gymnastics:
Denmark Gymnastics offer classes to Homeschool Groups in the Great Southern. These classes include elements of WAG (Women's Artistic Gymnastics) and Ninja and run on a weekday.

WAG Foundation Level Squad (Level 1 & 2)
Children from our Recreational classes who show potential for competitive gymnastics success are invited to join this program. 
The aim of our Foundation Level Squad is to follow the  Australian Levels Program in order to enhance your child’s ability to achieve their desired outcome in gymnastics through their focus, dedication and self confidence. They will be challenged with more advanced strength, flexibility and skill requirements. Training hours for this group are based on level and require a commitment to 2 days a weeks training.
Denmark Gymnastics does not currently offer competition for this group, however this is one of our aims for the future. In this program, you will notice your child developing more body control and core stability which is important not only for gymnastics, but for all sports in life.

 

During this program, your daughter may be talent identified to move through to the Competitive Program or if you wish, you are welcome to request a trial for our Competitive Program.

 

WAG Competitive Squad Gymnastics (Level 3+):
The competition squad program is a focused competitive program for gymnasts who wish to compete at a higher level against other clubs in Perth and regional areas. Athletes invited into the competitive program will be at the Head Coach’s discretion. There are 3-4 competitions in term 2 & 3, followed by State Championships (Sept/Oct). This stream of gymnastics starts at level 3 and requires a higher level of discipline and commitment to training.

Holiday training is also highly encouraged and expected, particularly during the competition season.


All our programs follow the Australian Levels Program set by Gymnastics Australia and consists of a variety of skills and routines the gymnast must learn and master on each apparatus.

​All of our coaches are GA accredited and all staff and volunteers are required by law to hold a current and valid Working with Children Check (WWCC) issued by the West Australian Government.

Trial Classes:
 
Denmark Gymnastics may offer a trial class (where there is space in the class) for new enrolments to ensure that we find a class that suits. 
 
We work with parents, athletes and coaches to ensure that we are able to place athletes in a class that matches their age and ability.
 
As safety is our priority, trial classes will only be offered when there is sufficient space in a class.
 
Trial classes are charged at the normal rate for the class as a one-off class.
 
Please note that requesting a trial does not secure a place in the class in which you are trialing. 
​​​
Waitlists:
 
Space is limited in our popular gymnastic classes. If a child missed out on a class, we encourage people to email to put their child’s name on a waiting list.
