About the Gymnastics Program
Offered all year round and taught in our fully equipped gymnastics facility, Stamford American International School's Lions Gymnastics classes are taught in an athlete-centred, progressive manner where we stress the learning process as well as the learning outcome. The Lions Gymnastics is offered both recreationally and at competitive levels with the aim of developing student gymnasts to the best they can. The program has over 200 gymnasts at all levels from beginner to Level 7 WAG. The lion gymnasts are coached by a fully professional team of ex-national level coaches. The teams compete both locally and regionally.
We are thrilled to be offering Gymnastics as a year-round Developmental and Competitive Athletic Sport at Stamford this year. Whether your child is enrolled in the recreational program 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.
Recreational Gymnastics Program
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.
Athletic Developmental & Competitive Gymnastics Program
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 teammates. All competitions are based on Gymnastics Australia's National Levels Program, a training curriculum and competition framework that Stamford follows closely.
