Gymnastics classes for kids & all ages

Johannesburg Gymnastics Centre offers gymnastics classes from the beginner levels, right through to the Olympic level. Our club collectively has the highest qualified judges & coaches in the country, who are all registered with the South African Gymnastics Federation.

Gymnastics has been widely regarded as the sport that develops all other sports! We focus on learning through fun, in a safe & healthy environment. We are open 6 days a week & offer very popular Saturday classes for girls & boys of all ages, to help those working moms & dads, who can not bring their children during the week.

Highlighted Achievements
One of our highlights was when we won the Jack Cheetham / Murray & Roberts award in 2012. Various clubs of all sporting disciplines countrywide apply for this prestigious award and we are extremely fortunate and honoured to have captured their attention.

The Gauteng Sports Coach of the Year is awarded annually by the Gauteng Department of Sport to the coach of the year, relating to all sport disciplines. For the first time ever it was awarded to a gymnastics coach and we are honoured to have had Head Coach and owner, Ilse Pelser, accept this prestigious award in 2012.
