Competitive Programs

Competitive Programs

Competitive Programs refers to classes that are competitive based and for people who want to compete in the various gymsports (usually for people that have some experience in gymnastics). We also have specialised development classes are specifically for children who have shown particular promise or who have a willingness to work very hard and be conscientious at a young age. Children in these classes will be prepared for entering into our competitive squads.

Recreational
• Kindergym
Kindergym is for children aged 1 year to 5 years who attend class with a parent or adult helper. The children are able to self-direct their learning through Circuits which allows for exploration of the basic movement fundamentals of running, jumping, landing, hanging, swinging, balancing, turning, rolling, climbing and supporting their own body weight on various body parts. Kindergym helps develop balance, co-ordination and confident body movement as they grow.

• Mini-gym
Mini-gym is for children aged 4 to 5 years whom may or may not yet be at school, but are happy to attend class without the aid of a parent or adult helper. Sometimes this is a less daunting option for that shy 5 year old who isn’t quite ready for the mixed age Gym-Fun class.

• Gym-Fun
This class is for beginners who are aged 5 years to 9 years. The class is graded at the end of each term and children will receive a certificate. This class has been developed so that children can learn their gymnastic basics in a fun-way. The program is based around learning a little of everything including tumbling, acrobatics, artistic gymnastics and basic mini-trampoline.

• Gym-Skills
Gym-Skills is designed for beginners who are aged 9 years and over. This class is an introductory class to basic gymnastic skills. Tweens and teens usually transition through this class fairly quickly on their way to other “skills” classes or competition squads.

Team gym is a new innovation by Gymnastics NSW to encourage recreational gymnasts to participate in a non-threatening, team- based, competition. Each Team will learn Tumbling skills, Single Mini-tramp passes and a floor routine that includes basic Acrobatic Elements. These will then be showcased at a Team-Gym event where everyone receives awards and everyone feels great at the end of the day! If this is the second class of the week that the gymnast participates in – it will attract a fantastic discount.

Competitive
• Acrobatic Gymnastics
Acrobatic Gymnastics (or Acro as it is known) is a competitive Acrobatics class. The athletes compete in groups of 2 or 3 where they build pyramids and the bases perform throws with their top. This is blended with the dynamic tumbling of traditional gymnastics. Parents interested in their children joining any of the competitive squads should discuss this matter with staff to find the most suitable class for the child.

At Altitude we have State Squads – which are the beginner level programs Levels 1-3. We also have The National Squads, which are competing at a National level in Levels 4 to 10. Lastly, we have athletes training at an Elite Level which are athletes who compete an International Level.

Trampoline Sports is made up of 3 competitive disciplines, Trampoline, Double Mini-Tramp (DMT) and Tumbling. Athletes learn 10 skill routines on Trampoline, 2 x 2 Skill Passes on DMT, and 5 – 8 Skill passes on the tumbling floor. Sometimes athletes like to specialise and only compete on tramp and DMT or just focus on Tumbling, however it is possible to compete in all three disciplines.

Here at Altitude we have Levels classes which are the beginner level programs Levels 1-5, National Squads which are competing at a National level in Levels 4 to 10. We also have Age and Elite Squads which are athletes competing (or working towards competing) at an International Level.
