GymMix

GymMix will help teachers to deliver a fun, safe and challenging fundamental gymnastics program. GymMix includes information on what activities are recommended for fundamental gymnastics programs, how to use gymnastics equipment, assessment tools, a comprehensive section that covers skill development and more.

A range of Activity Cards that teachers can use to provide individual, partner and group activities help to establish  independent learning opportunities. A series of Lesson Plans helps teachers to understand how to sequentially develop gymnastics skills and how to organise a gymnastics class, providing appropriate supervision and activity.

The award program (GFA National Levels Program) includes sequential levels of gymnastics activities and skills.  In GymMix Series A, the first three levels are included. These levels are ideal for school gymnastics programs and the majority of PE teachers will have no difficulty in delivering these skills. For non-specialist PE teachers, GymMix offers a terrific array of non-threatening, safe and very challenging fundamental gymnastics activities and skills.
 
The award program is supported with templates to help teachers track student’s progress and certificates for acknowledging progress and special effort.
Gymnastics activities provide students with a unique opportunity to learn about fundamental body management. Developing a range of gymnastics skills and related physical abilities will reduce injury, improve performance for all sporting pursuits and improve life skills. Give GymMix-A-GO!
