We have a large carpark at our facility, you are welcome to park in all spaces, even if there are reserved signs. There is also a lot of street parking available, please don't park in carparks for other businesses in the street, even if they appear closed. We have a drive through drop off point where you can drop your gymnasts straight at the front door.
Our minimum starting age is 3 years.

Children from 3 years can join our MiniMites program, this is a specialised pre school gymnastics program. Our MiniMites program does not involve parent participation, so children need to be ready to separate from parents and follow instructions from a coach to begin.

Beginners classes are available from 3 years of age to adults.

Advanced Level Gymnastics classes cater for gymnasts up to national/international standard.

We offer a two class trial for new gymnasts. For this you pay for your first class and your second class is free. If after the first two classes you want to continue we charge fees in 10 week blocks (prorata if it is partway through the block at the time) and the annual registration fee, which is $85.
All new students need to be prebooked into a class before they start. Our classes all run with a maximum coach:gymnast ratio to ensure our gymnasts safety and enjoyment.

We have a viewing area upstairs where you will be able to watch your child's class if you want to.

Please don't approach your child's coach to ask about their progress. The coaches will usually need to go straight from their current class to another class, so conversations with parents can take away from their other students class time. Please also be aware that your child works with a number of different coaches throughout their training session. You can find out about your child's progress by sending an email to admin@clubdynamite.com.au

All gymnasts will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of in house competitions and events each year, designed to build their confidence and performing ability and prepare them for external competitions as they progress. These events are designed to reward children's individual progress.

All MAG gymnasts participate in a variety of competitions at a Local, Regional and State level. Our boys have had great success in their events at all levels.

All gymnasts have the opportunity to work towards selection for our Performance Team. The performance team compete in many exciting competitions each year, with great success.

Competition is not compulsory except for those in our Performance Team and MAG programs.

Invoices will be emailed to you at the start of each new block, or for new gymnasts, when you have completed your trial. Payment is due within 7 days of receiving your invoice.

Our preferred payment method is online bank transfer and the bank details can be found on your invoice.

Please understand that when classes are in session we do not have the front counter attended as our staff will have their prime focus on the floor with your children.

Gymnasts can move up through the levels by mastering the required skills. We assess all of our gymnasts on a regular basis to evaluate their progress and see if they are ready for new challenges.

Once the skills are mastered for their class they will be given the opportunity to move up to a higher level, you will be notified by email when your child is ready to move up. If at anytime you would like a report on your child's progress just send us an email and we will send back their most recent testing results.

In most classes there will be more than one group, groups are divided up by ability with more advanced gymnasts working on higher level skills.

Please be aware that moving up through the levels is skill based, gymnasts need to master prerequisite skills in order to be safe and successful in learning the skills at the next level. Each gymnasts progress will be very individual.

Remember that there is great value in the learning journey. It is a wonderful achievement and we are excited to celebrate when a child moves up, but each child will meet their own personal challenges on the way, each will have certain skills or skill areas they need to work harder to master. The greatest gift that gymnastics can give a child is perseverance and determination, not only for things that are easy, but through challenges as well. Enjoy the journey!
