GYMNASTICS FUN-DAMENTALS FOR
1 - 8 YEAR OLDS

 

These fully supervised classes provide children with confidence, coordination, balance and body control and offer a physically challenging and socially interactive experience for all age groups. 

 

These classes provide children with a basic grounding in gymnastics skills from which they can progress further through classes at ICE Gymsports.

All classes are held at Rangiora Fitness Centre.

SPORTS FUN-DAMENTALS FOR
PRE-SCHOOLERS

 

Our Sports FUN-damentals programmes will provide the building blocks for participation in active play and sports for all preschoolers.  Learning core skills such as balance, throwing, running and kicking properly helps children to develop confidence and ultimately enjoy a lifetime of being active in all sorts of competitive and recreational pursuits.

All classes are held at MainPower Stadium.

Our Sports FUN-damentals classes for babies and toddlers offers them the opportunity to experience a wide range of different sports-based activities to learn some of the basic movements used across all sports. 

 

Each class is structured around a particular sporting code, helping each child's development of key skills including hitting, kicking, throwing and catching, jumping, running, rolling and climbing. 

 

Overall children will see improvements in balance and movement, hand/eye coordination, body awareness and control, and social interactions, and through these positive experiences in physical activities help them enjoy sports more as they enter primary school and beyond.
