Gym­nasts joins LaunchPad

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

MOSS­MAN and Dis­trict Gym­nas­tics Club and Kin­der­gym joins an ever in­creas­ing num­ber of LaunchPad ac­cred­ited clubs in Queens­land (18 to date), which are na­tion­ally recog­nised providers of gym­nas­tics based fun­da­men­tal move­ment pro­grams un­der the LaunchPad ban­ner.

Launchpad is an ini­tia­tive of Gym­nas­tics Aus­tralia. It has three pro­grams: Kin­der­Gym, Gym Fun and Gym Skills.

The pro­grams are based on fun­da­men­tal move­ment ac­tiv­i­ties that give chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to prac­tise, de­velop and, most im­por­tantly, en­joy mov­ing through a wide-range of ac­tiv­i­ties that will help them to de­velop holis­ti­cally.

Many of the games and ac­tiv­i­ties in LaunchPad pro­grams are based on what fun­da­men­tal gym­nas­tics coaches around the world have been de­liv­er­ing for years.

Im­por­tantly, re­search tells us that chil­dren who have th­ese fun­da­men­tal skills are far more likely to par­tic­i­pate in sport and recre­ation through­out life.
