Gymnastics @ School

In the Gymnastics @ School program, we come to you. We offer infant and primary schools the convenience of not having to travel to participate in gymnastics by running a 5 or 10 week program on the school grounds either in the school hall or in a suitable outdoor environment.

Over the course of the program, students will learn not only the fundamentals of the sport of gymnastics but for sport in general.


 In 2007 in conjunction with Gymnastics Australia the Hunter Sports Centre developed the 'gymnastics-in-schools' program at that time branded 'GYMSkools'. GymSkools was rebranded in 2012 and is now delivered under the new brand of LaunchPad. We are the industry leaders in the delivery of school based gymnastics programs!

The Benefits of Gymnastics

Gymnastics is one of the few sports that offer children the opportunity to tip upside down and develop physical abilities that are important for their overall development. These days' playground opportunities are reduced, where children can climb, jump, hang etc because society is protecting itself from potential litigation.


A gymnastics program delivered by experienced instructors can provide children with these safety skills. Teachers will be surprised at the range of activities that can be undertaken and many will become confident to teach these skills themselves.


The Gymnastics @ School program focuses on motor skills which are learnt in early childhood.

  • Statics
  • Locomotion
  • Spring & Landing
  • Swing
  • Rotation

Charges will vary depending on the program, numbers and timeframe but are kept to a minimum to ensure affordability.
