What is Gymstar?
Gymstar is a children’s gymnastics program designed and maintained by Gymnastics Victoria. Made up of ten levels, gymnasts start at level 1 and learn skills on each apparatus. The skills in each level build on the skills in the previous level.
There are six apparatus used in Gymstar classes: vault, uneven bars, balance beam, parallel bars, rings, and floor.
Classes for Beginners to Advanced
Eureka Gymnastics Club runs Gymstar classes are for children ages five and up for kids in the Ballarat area. We run classes that are suitable for beginners, and those who have been involved in gymnastics for a while! Our coaches accredited by Gymnastics Victoria and Gymnastics Australia.
Children’s Gymnastics Classes at Eureka
At Eureka Gymnastics Club, our coaches assess gymnasts regularly throughout the term during their lessons. So, once they reach the pass mark, they earn a certificate and can move to the next level class.
In the first four levels, gymnasts learn skills like supports on uneven and parallel bars, cartwheels and backward rolls on floor, turns and leaps on the balance beam, and how to land to a crash mat from a height.
In higher levels, gymnasts learn acrobatic skills like front and back saltos on floor and cartwheels and walkovers on the beam. In addition, they also learn strength skills on the rings, forward rolls and swings in support on parallel bars, and how to vault over the vault table to land on their feet. Additionally, gymnasts in these classes might enjoy the Allstar Tumbling or Gymstar Strength classes.
