Gymnastics is a very diverse sport, and is made up of many Gymsports - Men’s Artistic (MAG), Womens’s Artistic (WAG), Rythmic (RG), Gymnastics for All (GFA), Aerobic (AER), Trampoline (TRP), Acrobatic (ACRO), and Cheerleading (CHL).

Not all clubs offer all gymsports, and clubs vary in the facilities they offer.

Some larger clubs have permanently setup facilities with foam pits, whilst some smaller clubs may operate in a shared space (i.e. a school hall). The facilities that a club operates out of are less important than the calibre of the staff and coaches operating the club. Some fantastic coaches work in setup / packup venues, so it’s important to not just ‘judge a book by it’s cover’.

It’s important to find the Gymsport, coach and the club that suits your child the best. Luckily most clubs offer free trial classes.

About the Author

Gary Black

Advanced Silver Mens Gymnastics Coach, Intermediate Womens Gymnastics Coach, Intermediate Kindergym Coach.

Gary began running gymnastics programs in schools in 2003. Initially as a casual staff member with another company, whilst studing teaching at Deakin University; and quickly becoming one of their managers. Gary went on to own what was the sole Victorian franchise of that company.

Whilst with that company, under Gary's leadership, Victorian customers enjoyed quality, reliability, flexibility, and understanding.

In mid 2014, to be able to better service the changing needs of schools, Gary decided to move away from a restrictive franchised business, and started Gymnastics 4 Hire, determined to keep the high standards that customers had come to enjoy, and to provide a service specifically tailored to the customers needs.
