Rocket Tots (Ages 6 Months – 5 Years)
Rocket Tots is a 'Free Play' program that encourages learning in a stimulating, encouraging and fun environment and includes movement to music; utilising the gymnastics area and equipment; interaction with other children and play with balls, ropes, ladders, slides, swings, foam shapes, balance beams, trampolines and climbing obstacles.
Mini Martians (Ages 3– 5 Years)
Mini Martians is a movement program for children 5 years and under and their adult caregiver. The specialised preschool focussed class is designed to develop the whole child - socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.
The Mini Martians program helps develop strength, flexibility, co-ordination, balance and posture. Children will learn to follow instructions in a group, interact socially and make great new friends in the gym. The program will prepare each child to enter our Gymnastics Programs and forms the perfect foundation for any other team or individual sport.
Children will learn to use the balance beam, trampoline, rings, uneven bars, climbing rope, crash mats, springboards and will be introduced to other equipment as their term progresses. At this stage of development, we place a large focus on having fun whilst learning and improving basic gymnastic ability in a safe, structured and multisensory environment. Parents are an integral part of the program and help their child to participate in all activities as directed by the instructor.
The Recreational Gymnastics Program offers skills-based classes focusing on fundamental movement patterns which will assist children to progress into more advanced gymnastics skills and activities.
The games and activities provided are safe and encourage children to co-operate, work with others and build self-esteem, all while improving balance, coordination, confident body movement and developing attributes for long term participation in sport.

• Gym Fun Beginner: Ages 5 – 6 (Class Time 1 Hour) • Gym Fun Intermediate: Ages 7 – 8 (Class Time 1 Hour) • Gym Fun Advanced: Ages 9 – 11 (Class Time 1 Hour)

Our adult gymnastics class incorporates balance, flexibility, stretching and strength while maintaining and enhancing your gymnastics abilities. It is the perfect work out that uses every muscle in your body and helps develop gymnastics skills for all levels.
Fun, rigorous and challenging for former gymnasts or any adult that wants to experience an exciting way to exercise.
The class incorporates a cardio/strength based warm up followed by floor basics (e.g. rolls, handstands, cartwheels). Participants are then able to move on to circuit-based skill progressions where we learn things such as somersaults, handsprings and roundoffs.
The level is dictated by participants and our experienced coaches are able to cater for everyone, from a person wanting to try handstands for the first time to former gymnasts. During the class you will be able to use the floor, airtrack, bars, rings, rope, silks, trampoline and beam.
All Hobart PCYC Gymnastics classes are conducted safely and professionally by certified instructors in an inclusive and positive environment. Our gymnastics staffing team currently consists of:
Mrs Mardi Eaton
