Our Gym Abilities program was the first to have an Olympic Theme here in SA.
The children in the photo are doing an acrobatic pyramid.
This group of children have been involved in our GymAbility program for 5 terms.
Their progression in gymnastics is phenomenal. We are now progressing through our "gym for all" program and most of the children are working on level 2.
Last term we had a "gym for all" challenge where the children went through the skill for level one where the group received 3 gold awards, some silver and bronze.
They have had a taste of sport aerobics and sport acrobatics.
