Artemis Gymnastics classes for kids are designed to develop balance, coordination, strength, flexibility and confidence.
A leading “Gymnastics for All” program in Melbourne which aims to develop strong foundations of movement, physical literacy and positive experiences to be fit and active for life.
Artemis Gymnastics classes are designed to develop balance, coordination, strength, flexibility and confidence. We offer recreational gymnastics and tumbling programs for children aged between 4 and 10 years old, with a strong focus on broadening our reach through participation and personal growth. We maintain a 1 to 8 coach to child ratio in all our classes, enabling our accredited staff to spend quality time with each student to boost their experiences and development.
Gymnastics is the perfect foundation sport and lifestyle exercise program for children, developing a holistic range of fundamental skills to benefit both recreational participation and a competitive pathway in gymnastics. Plus, it is the ideal springboard for a positive transition to other sports or physical movement passions.
Age: 4–10 Years
Our Foundations Program is a recreational gymnastics program designed for students aged 4–10 years. Participants in this program follow a structured developmental program designed to guide them through a series of basic gymnastics skills as well as other important characteristics such as flexibility, strength, coordination and spatial awareness.
The Foundations Program is the perfect introduction to the range of opportunities within the gymnastics pathway.
Classes run for 45 – 60 minutes and are organised according to age and skill level.
Age: 5–10 Years
Mini JETS and JETS Gymnastics is an invitation-only, advanced recreational program for students aged 5–10 years.
