How Do I Enrol My Gymnast For Classes?

To register for Gym Fun or WAG/MAG classes gymnasts must be turning 5 in 2020 (or older). To register for a Tumbling or FreeG class gymnasts must be at least 7 years old.  Gymnasts must be independent enough to participate without a parent or carer.   If your gymnast is not ready to participate without you please check out our KinderGym page.

All gymnasts must register before participating in classes. We are unable to accept registrations or allocate classes at the gym.

Tumbling and FreeG classes are new to PCGC in term 4 and are not listed on the registration form. If your gymnast would like to register for either of these classes please select “Recreation Gymnastics” and provide further details in the medical information field of the form.

If we continue offering Tumbling and FreeG classes in 2021 we will update the new registration form accordingly.

First…

Decide what sort of gymnastics class your gymnast is interested in:

Gym Fun

Gym Fun is a recreational gymnastics program for kids who are interested in participating in gymnastics but not interested in competing. Gymnasts do not learn routines and are not invited to enter competitions.

Gym Fun focuses having fun and getting fit rather than assessments and competitions. Gym Fun coaches teach correct gymnastics technique but are discouraged from getting “too hung up on it”.

Gym Fun usually appeals to younger or beginner gymnasts who only want to attend class once per week.

WAG (Girls) or MAG (Boys)

The PCGC WAG/MAG programs are competitive streams of gymnastics. Gymnasts train at least twice per week and aim to progress through the Australian Gymnastics National Levels Program.

While we like to consider all our gym programs to be fun and enjoyable for participants, the focus of WAG/MAG classes is achievement.

Gymnasts are placed in a class based on their age and gymnastic ability. It is preferred that gymnasts master all relevant skills as close to perfect as possible before moving to a more advanced class.

WAG/MAG gymnasts will be given the opportunity to compete in at least three competitions per year. Competitions are not compulsory, but they are highly recommended as they give gymnasts something to work towards.

Note – beginner gymnasts are welcome to register for WAG/MAG. We have classes available for all ages and abilities.

Tumbling (New to PCGC in Term 4)

Tumbling is a form of gymnastics performed without apparatus or equipment. Also referred to as “floor gymnastics” common moves performed in tumbling include flips, somersaults, tucks, handstands and handsprings. Classes are mixed-gender and are open to kids aged 7 years and older. Tumbling classes perfect for gymnasts who just want to learn floor skills.

FreeG (New to PCGC in Term 4)

FreeG or Freestyle Gymnastics is an activity that encourages gymnasts to use traditional gymnastics apparatus in different ways. FreeG fuses traditional gymnastics and acrobatic tricks, with kicks and leaps. Classes are mixed-gender and are open to kids aged 7 years and older. FreeG is more relaxed, modern form of traditional gymnastics.

Then…

Submit a Pearl Coast Gymnastics Club Registration via this webpage.

Your form will be sent to our club admin email address ([email protected]). We will contact you via email to confirm receipt and let you know where we can fit your gymnast in, or if they need to be placed on a waiting list.

Please note: this email account is checked about twice a week, but if you don’t receive a response within about 10 days please follow up. It’s a good idea to add our email address to your address book so emails from the club are not filtered or blocked as spam.

Would You Prefer To Speak To Somebody?

As Pearl Coast Gymnastics Club doesn’t have an office or reception area at the gym, admin is done off site, usually after hours, via email. We don’t offer phone-based customer service.

While this works well for most people, we understand that doesn’t suit everybody.

We have a staff or committee member on the door for our PAYG KinderGym classes on Saturday mornings (830-930am during school term). If you would prefer to speak to somebody please come down then.
