APRIL 2020 SCHEDULE
All activities are suitable for beginners.
Beams, bars, floor and more! Kids will have a ball with a BIG gymnastics circuit using ALL equipment! Includes games and FREE TIME!
Boys and girls will love expending their energy with ninja obstacles and then run, leap and scramble with Parkour! Includes FREE TIME.
Kids will LOVE learning to become ninjas! Ninja is an excellent sport for boys and girls who are looking for something exciting, energetic and creative. Our ninjas flip, twist and jump as they improve their coordination, agility and balance. Ninja is inspired by gymnastics, martial arts, obstacle training and freestyle movement.
Parkour is an exciting and challenging sport in which athletes learn to move freely across increasingly difficult obstacles and landscapes. Using only the abilities of their body, boys and girls refine their skills in running, jumping, climbing, and quadrupedal movement. Excellent for children wanting to work on their strength, co-ordination and creative vision.
Want to have a go at cheerleading? Cheerleading is a dynamic and energetic team sport for boys and girls. In our holiday cheerleading classes, children will work on developing key skills including stunts, tumbling, dance and jumps, and even work on putting together simple routines. This is a fantastic opportunity to try out and have fun with the vibrant and exciting sport.
Come along and have a BLAST! Kids will go wild as the Gym is transformed into a giant battlefield for an ultimate NERF party! We will play games that test kid’s aim, teamwork and strategic planning.
Tumbling is an element of gymnastics that focuses on the skills athletes perform on the floor. The coaches at Icon will help athletes develop their abilities of balance and aerial awareness to complete a wide range of skills. Tumbling can be as easy as a bunny hop drill all the way to extremely advanced flipping and twisting skills. These sessions are very popular with athletes that enjoy handstands, cartwheels, and other school yard tricks.
Try out sports aerobics! Sports aerobics is an exciting dance style that involves strength, flexibility and stamina. Combining elements such as pushups, jumps, kicks and lots of movement around the stage. No previous dance or gymnastics experience required – just lots of energy!
Come try out dance at Icon these holidays! Try out different styles like jazz and hip hop in a fun inclusive session for all levels of experience. Kids will participate in dance themed games, learn some choreography and even get the chance to make some up of their own! So come along and get dancing!
