Rocket Tots (0-5yrs)

 

Description

 

Rocket Tots is a fun introduction to gymnastics equipment and gymnastics movement. The program includes activities of swinging, jumping, hopping, balancing, hanging, stretching, landing, rolling, bouncing, climbing and movement to music.

 

Outcomes

 

The program helps develop strength, flexibility, co-ordination, balance and posture. The children will also learn to follow instructions in a group, interact socially and make great new friends in the gym. The program will prepare each child to enter the Mini Martians class. Your child will learn to use the balance beam, trampoline, rings, uneven bars, climbing rope, crash mats, springboards and will be introduced to other equipment as their term progresses. In this stage of development, we place a large focus on having fun whilst learning and improving basic gymnastic ability.

 

Parent Participation

 

Parents are asked to help their child to participate in all activities as directed by the instructor. Please do not leave the group or use any equipment without the direction of the instructor. Your child will gain independence as they grow older and will graduate to a regular Mini Martians class.
