If you are new to gymnastics or continuing on from tumblers, boys can experience all areas of gymnastics in class with boys aged 6 and up. Skills developing coordination, balance, agility, and strength are explored across the Men's apparatus, as well as the trampoline, our Ninja and Strength areas. We promote fun and enjoyment through preparation and progression, in a safe environment, with our highly trained coaches!
Our Boys-Gym Program has 8 Steps that integrate and transfer into Gymnastics Australia's MAG Levels Program (Men's Artistic Gymnastics).
Boys-Gym Green = Steps 1-3:
Entry into our Men's Gymnastics pathways at DGC. With a focus on foundations and the development of training ability. Classes are offered throughout the week, with gymnasts ideally attending two classes a week, but there is the option of attending a single class if preferred. Training on all MAG apparatus, trampoline and Ninja areas, with a high focus on: Floor, Pommel, Vault and MAG Bars!
Boys-Gym Yellow = Steps 4-8:
2 classes are to be attended each week to cover the entire program. Attending a strength session is also required to ensure that participants have the strength and conditioning required to perform the skills in the higher steps safely. Gymnasts can remain in the Steps program... or ideally, this program can be used as a pathway into our MAG Squads, working towards competition events.
Our Steps Program has been developed using Gymnastic Australia's 4x4 Program and MAG ALP Levels 1-5 routines.
Does your Boy wish to compete for DGC?
Boys in the Yellow Program can train their Steps-Skills & represent DGC at MAG ALP local/state/inter-state events! (See Below)
If your child is in the Boys-Gym Program and wishes to be considered for DGC's MAG Squads, to compete at local club and state events, please let us know! With the curriculum for the Steps and ALP programs being the same, if enough boys are interested, an additional 'Routines' training day can be added for terms 2 and 3 to convert the corresponding Steps skills into connected MAG routines.
