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.
