Gymnasts joins LaunchPad
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.
