Gymnastics Australia is super excited to release a new LaunchPad Aerobics video providing coaches and teachers with a great example of how to translate the LaunchPad resources into a real life session with students.  

 

 The video includes chapters on: Warm Up games, Skill Development, Circuits, Creating a Routine and Cool Down activities utilising music, activity cards and lessons  sourced from the LaunchPad Aerobics resource which is available FREE to clubs and schools delivering the Sporting Schools Program.    

 

 Watch the video here!

 

 The launch of Gymnastics Australia’s new LaunchPad Aerobics program has hit the ground running with 22 schools across Australia choosing LaunchPad Aerobics for their Sporting Schools Program for the first time ever!

 

 Sporting Schools is a $160 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools increase children’s participation in sport, and to connect them with community sporting opportunities.

 

 The Aerobics program is being delivered in Primary Schools by gymnastics coaches and teachers using the new LaunchPad Aerobics resources.   

 

 Gymnastics Australia’s National Participation Manager, Robyn Tribe is enthusiastic about the future of Aerobic gymnastics in schools.

 

 “We are expecting the number of aerobics programs to double in Term 3 as more schools learn about this fantastic new program which is inclusive of all abilities and requires no equipment.  Feedback from schools is that the children are enjoying creating their own formations and routines once they have learned a few simple steps.”  

 

 For more information on how your club can get involved in Sporting Schools contact sportingschools@gymnastics.org.au or go to www.launch-pad.org.au.
