GymSkills / GymStarz
GymSkills is the third of the three sequential programs within LaunchPad and is specifically designed for children aged between 7 - 10 years old. As children develop their movement skills, we can begin to introduce activities that may be more specific to certain sports. Now that’s not to say that GymSkills gets all serious and competitive.
GymStarz progresses from there and works increasing the current skills attained and increasing their strength, flexibility and focus.
One thing that GymSkills/GymStarz definitely isn’t, is a range of repetitive drills and rigorous fitness training. Yes, kids involved in GymSkills/GymStarz will improve their fitness but it is still about keeping fun in the mix as a priority.
After being involved in GymSkills/GymStarz, children will have had the opportunity to increase their confidence and competence in movement; preparing them for a wide range of other sports and activities.
GymStarz is our very own additional program (10-15yrs) giving athletes an opportunity to further advance their skills learnt from GymSkills or Acrofun. Children are usually invited into this program once they've demonstrated a minimum skill level as well as strength, focus and flexibility.
