What is Gymjam all about?

Gymjam is a fundamental movement skills program that focus on foundation gymnastics for boys and girls ages 3 – 9 years.

Besides physical development, our program also instills social, emotional & cognitive skills as well as self-confidence.

Why are fundamental movement skills SO important?

  • Research has shown that participating in a gymnastics program develops the same neural pathways needed for mathematics and reading.
  • Gymnastics classes for kids has been proven to boost self-esteem in children by helping them overcome fear, gain performance skills, develop a healthy self-image and gain social confidence.
  • Most skills used in sports and movement activities are advanced versions of fundamental motor skills taught in a foundation gymnastics program such as hand-eye coordination (rugby, cricket, tennis, hockey netball), flexibility, rhythm & timing (ballet, dance), strength & agility (athletics, swimming).
  • Mastery of the fundamental movement skills by children is necessary if optimum development of higher-level skills is to occur. Children who do not master these skills are less able and often less willing to persist with the difficult task of learning more complex motor skills. Ultimately, such children encounter a sport skill proficiency barrier and reject participation in physical activity as part of their lifestyle
  • The modern-day busy school curriculum generally does not allow for sufficient physical development during school hours and therefore children need to participate in extra activities to ensure a balanced development of physical and cognitive skills.
  • A good fundamental movement program ensure that every child receives the individual attention that maximizes their development and that is what we offer at Gymjam.
