About the Gymnastics Program
At Stamford, we offer Gymnastics as a year-round Developmental, Semi-Competitive and Competitive Athletic Sport under the Stamford Lions Gymnastics Academy.
Whether your child is enrolled in the developmental or the competitive program, all our classes are taught in an athlete-centered, progressive manner. We believe the learning process is every bit as important as the learning outcome, so students are grouped according to age, physical ability and work attitude to maximize their learning experience.
Gymnastics teaches children physical literacy, a combination of physical and motor abilities, fundamental movement patterns and sports skills. With these skills, children have a strong foundation to explore and enjoy different sports and physical activities, keeping them active and healthy for life. On top of these, gymnastics also helps develop social skills and teaches teamwork; all essential in succeeding in and out the gym.
Semi-Competitive & Competitive Gymnastics
We recognize that children have varying levels of interest and aspiration for the sport, and we provide further specialized training for those with the desire and commitment to train and compete at higher levels.
Competitive gymnasts are selected based on physical ability & preparation, gymnastics basics, work ethic and ability to work well with team mates. All competitions are based on Gymnastics Australia's National Levels Program, a training curriculum and competition framework that Stamford follows closely.
