Team Gym is an exciting type of performance gymnastics where gymnasts compete in teams of 6-12 members and perform tumbling, vaulting, mini tramp and a choreographed floor display which includes gymnastic, acrobatic and aerobic elements. Team Gym in New Zealand is loosely derived from the European style of Team Gym and performance gymnastics. The Whanganui Boys and Girls Gym Club first introduced Team Gym to it’s club members in 1992 and subsequently to the rest of New Zealand in 2000.
Each year we hold a Team Gym Competition here in Whanganui and attend a second competition in Waikanae. Children are selected to be part of a Team and compete against other Clubs in the Region. In August we welcome Danish Students who arrive from Ollerup. These Coaches are experts on Team Gym and often take charge of a few Teams to compete.
We currently offer a Team Gym class as part of our recreational 10 years and over programme. This is held on a Monday night 6.30-8.00pm and available for registration on the sign up page. For more information contact Kelly: firstname.lastname@example.org
