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.
For example, in gymstar level 1 children will learn how to do a forward roll. They start by using a wedge, to help them roll. Then they progress to doing this on the floor. Around level 5, gymnasts learn how to do this on the balance beam. Eventually, in level 7 and above, they learn how to do a front salto on the floor.

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.
