Gymnastics Coaching

Sport Aberdeen provides Kindergym classes for children 18 months to 3 years and Pre-School classes for those aged 3 years until they start P1.

Once a child has started school we can help put you in touch with a number of clubs around the city that provide gymnastics coaching.

If you child is interested in competitive gymnastics we can help put you in touch with one of the clubs in the city who offer a competitive pathway.  

Kindergym classes 18 months – 3 years

Classes are 45 minutes long and provide a safe, fun environment where your child can be active and explore the fundamentals of movement. In this class the child works directly with their parent / guardian alongside the coaches to do various activities that aid the development of key skills eg. balance and co-ordination.

Gymnastics FAQs

What should my child wear?

Participants should dress appropriately for physical activity, shorts and t-shirt are perfect, leggings and tracksuit bottoms are also acceptable.  Denim, dresses and skirts are not appropriate as they can be restrictive to movement and get caught up in equipment.  Please ensure that long hair is tied back, with no hard hair bands.  No jewellery is allowed.  All gymnasts must have bare feet (no socks) to ensure that the risk of slipping is minimised. 

What does the class involve?

Children attend independently where they learn to follow instruction using a range of rebound and climbing apparatus as well as more challenging hand apparatus and movement to music. Gymnastics shapes and basic techniques are taught through songs and stories. 

Do I need to stay with my child?

For children under the age of 8, a parent/guardian must remain within the centre but are not permitted to stay in the gym hall.  If your child has additional support needs and requires 1:1 supervision then it is advised that this is arranged with the facility manager prior to attending the sessions.

How do I pay?

The payments for classes will be due for the whole block and payable at the centre.
