What makes BK Gymnastics different?
Through a boutique facility model and age appropriate class sizes, we offer a higher level of communication and support – minus the distractions of larger clubs. In addition, our program is endorsed by Gymnastics Australia, with fully qualified coaching staff. We back ourselves that you will love us! If you do join and aren’t happy with us, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
What ages do you cater for?
Our core programs are aimed at children from 3 months old to 12 years, however as gymnastics is a sport that can cater for all ages and abilities, we will design classes that meet the needs and expectations of the broader community.
Please see the timetable at your nearest BK Gym & Swim site for their program offering
Are your coaches/programs accredited?
Yes all of our coaches have to be qualified through through the Gymnastics Australia accredited programs and undergo on the job training before having their own class to teach.
BK Gymnastics has developed its own industry leading program in alignment with Gymnastics Australia’s programs, offering age and skill appropriate lesson plans tailored to each individual.
What are the advantages of starting gymnastics early?
Research tells us that children who have developed competency in fundamental movement skills are far more likely to participate in sport and recreation throughout their life and will have reduced obesity risk.
There are also positive links between fundamental movement skills and a child’s social skills, self-esteem and academic performance. (*source: Gymnastics Australia)
What should my child wear to the lesson and what should we bring?
Bring a drink bottle and wear comfortable clothing that’s easy to move in.
How many children are in the class?
We run a boutique program and offer class sizes smaller than many of our competitors so we can focus on results. Class sizes range from between 4-10 participants depending on the level. Please see the gymnastics program section on our site for further information
Will our child have the same teacher every week?
Yes. We aim to keep coaches consistent in classes, but your teacher may change as your child moves through the program.
How long are the lessons?
The base lesson is 45mins, however there will be more structured classes as your child moves through the levels to cater to their abilities, and classes may go up to 90 minutes in duration.
Do parents need to attend the lessons?
For children 3 years of age and under, parents or guardians should attend. It is not compulsory from 4 years of age onwards, but we encourage you to share in your childs development and achievements.
Can we take photos of our child?
Be mindful that your child (and any others in the photo) are dressed and posed appropriately. You should ask permission before taking pictures of any child other than your own. Club management reserves the right to ask you to refrain from taking photos. Be mindful when posting images to social media. Our club would strongly recommend you do not post any pictures that contain images of other children where they are easily identifiable unless you have parental permission.
How will I get feedback and updates on my childs progress?
The BK Gym & Swim app has been designed to provide feedback on your childs development after every lesson and at the end of each term. By downloading our app, your child will also be able to receive awards and certificates for achievement of milestones.
In addition, the head coach will be available to discuss progress with you one on one.
Will our child receive certificates?
Yes! By downloading our app, your child will be able to receive awards and certificates for achievement of milestones and receive feedback after each lesson.
What does the enrolment fee cover?
i.e. The annual enrolment fee covers your membership with Gymnastics Australia, state/territory fees, and BK Gym & Swim.
It provides an assurance that your coaches are accredited with Gymnastics Australia for which there are high standards of qualification and compliance.
Through this program, registered participants are also covered by insurance for personal injury. You can view the policy documents and what is covered here.
Do we need to sign up for a full term?
No, you can come on a week to week basis, however you just need to give us 4 weeks notice if you decide to cancel your lessons.
We think you’ll love us though and we offer a special 30 day money back guarantee when you join to give you the confidence to try us out risk free.
Is there a minimum term?
If you’re happy to join us for a 6 month term, you’ll access our best pricing. If you prefer something more flexible, we offer month to month memberships.
In addition, we offer a special 30 day money back guarantee when you join so you can try us out risk-free.
Do you offer school holiday programs?
Yes we do. Our holiday program is an intensive dose of daily lessons for four consecutive days.
It’s a fun and healthy activity for the kids and a great opportunity to get some extra practice or experience our program for the first time.
Do the programs run on the same times as school terms?
Gymnastics is a journey that doesn’t stop when school terms do! Our program runs 48 weeks a year to recognise this. Need to take an extended break?
If the break is due to a medical reason, you can either use make-up lessons as a replacement for short periods or apply a $5 weekly fee for longer periods to hold your preferred lesson time.
Planning a holiday to try out those new gymnastics skills? We have 4 weeks of non lesson periods over Christmas and Easter along with the ability to suspend 4 weeks of your own choosing. Lessons may be suspended, in advance, for a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 4 weeks at any one time with a maximum of 4 lessons per year.
Once we've started, can we change our lesson day or time?
Of course you can! Our industry leading technology means you can see our all of our class vacancies across the week in real time and change to something more suitable. +
If we don’t have anything currently that suits you can also register using our waitlist function and you will be notified immediately once something becomes available.
Can we get a make-up lesson if we can't make the session?
Yes unlike some of our competitors we endeavour to put the customer first with make up lessons. To qualify parents need to give 24 hour notice via the app that their child will be unable to attend their regular class.
Parents will then be able to see make up vacancies across the week and choose a suitable time to undertake the make up class.
We ask that parents book in for these as quickly as close to the same week as possible though so students are able to stay connected to our curriculum.
What is your cancellation policy?
We hate to see people go but we understand there are lots of reasons why it happens.
Hopefully we can help first if something comes up that is a barrier to continuing but if not, parents just need to notify us in writing with 4 weeks notice that they will be leaving the program.
