What is GymAbility?

Five Dock Leisure Centre is proud to offer a program which caters for children who have a disability that impacts on their physical ability. Our GymAbility program (previously called Rebound Therapy) provides participants with experiences that target the development of physical abilities through beginner friendly gymnastics-based movements.

  • 1 x $8 trial class permitted before full term payment of the program is required

The class is structured with a variety of beneficial exercises including:

GymAbility will take place in our fully equipped gymnasium, utilising sprung floor, foam pit and multiple trampolines. Each lesson will consist of a warm up involving familiar exercises to prepare the children for the movements of the lesson. Skills and activities will form the bulk of the lessons, all designed to improve and develop each child’s abilities. Each lesson will conclude with calming and relaxing movements. All participants are required to have a parent/carer supporting and assisting them through the class, alongside our qualified staff. The classes are held for 45 minutes with a ratio of six participants to one coach.
