How does Gym Sense Work?
Gym Sense is a program that allows certified Gymnastics Instructors to go in to school and work with the phys.Ed teacher,during regular school hours, so that every child has an opportunity to experience the sport of gymnastics. A school contarcts Gym Sense for a two, three or four week (length of time at a school depends on the number of students). The program covers a strong stress on the solid basics of gymnastics.
About the Program Used by Gym Sense
After working in a number of different clubs in Canada and other countries, we have developed a program that covers solid basics. Taken from programs that we have come across in New Zealand, Australia and the Can Gym program (the Canadian Recreational gymnastics program). We have developed a program that is child friendly for everyone, that will enhance their confidence and self esteem in a safe environment while learning the sport.
