What is Gymnastics?
Gymnastics philosophy is long term athletic development by building physical literacy skills through teaching FUN, FITNESS and FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT. Fun and Fitness are obvious. Fundamental Movement refers to all the movements we teach. These are • Landings • Static Positions • Locomotions • Rotations • Swings • Springs • Object Manipulation.
Gymnastics is considered to be a foundational sport by the International Olympic Committee. There are only three foundational sports; Swimming, Track and Field and Gymnastics.

What is a Foundational sport?
A Foundational Sport is one where the skills and training a participant receives translate into EVERY other sport. This means that any person with a history in a foundational sport like gymnastics will make a better Hockey Player, Soccer Player, Basketball, dancers and on and on the list goes. The skills they learn will help with their physical literacy, proprioception, physical awareness, flexibility, recovery rate and it's because of these they less likely to get injured.
What is Active Start, MAG, WAG etc?
There are many aspects of Gymnastics as a sport, it is really several sports under one broad title.
Active Start Gymnastics - This refers to the initial stages of gymnastics, ages 0-5 years; it concentrates on building physical literacy through Games and fun activities. It initiates the idea of conquering fears through small steps. If a child is afraid of something here, they do not have to do it. They learn on stepped down apparatuses that the artistic gymnasts use.
Men’s and Woman’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG and WAG) - This is what you see in the Olympics. The Bars, the big floor routines, the Pommel Horse, Vault and Rings. We teach these to a Competitive Introduction level.
Other Disciplines - Acrobatic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Aerobic Gymnastics, Trampoline and the list goes on.
