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.
At Eureka Gymnastics Club, our coaches assess gymnasts regularly throughout the term during their lessons. And, once they have reached 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 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, we encourage gymnasts in these classes to get involved in the Allstar Tumbling or Gymstar Strength classes.
