Kids in Motion Idea.jpg

Kids In Motion is a recreational gymnastics club for both girls and boys aged 3 to 14+. The club also caters for primary schools as well as Transition Year students and holds gymnastic camps and summer and Easter fun camps.   Kids In Motion gymnastic clubs are based in Westport Rice Collage, Westport Co Mayo on Fridays and in CastlebarAn Sportlann, McHale Park, Castlebar, Co Mayo on Saturdays. We also travel to schools throughout Mayo and Sligo during the week, where we set up and run a fully-equipped gym in a hall or classroom. 


What we do

Artistic Gymnastics for all: Floor, Bars, Beams, Trampoline, Vault.

Pre-school: Pre-school gymnastics is a semi-structured class in which the children do 15 minutes of work within their group and are rewarded with 10 minutes' free play around the gym (supervised). This class allows them to learn how to take turns and take instruction in a fun, friendly environment. 

Junior gymnastics: Junior gymnastics is where the gymnasts learn the fundamental skills in gymnastics, their flexibility and strength will improve and they will learn and experience a much wider variety of skills in this 90-minute class. 

Senior gymnastics: Senior gymnastics is for eight-years-plus. The gymnasts are slightly older and stronger and therefore more able to try out lots of new and more exciting and advanced skills and routines. 

Acrobatics: Acrobatics is practiced on a monthly basis to give the gymnasts a good variety of skills. Acrobatics is a really fun way of balancing on or with another person or persons, great for fun, enjoyment and team building. 

Boys-only / Girls-only: Boys-only and girls-only classes offer boys and girls the chance to train with boys only or girls only. They cover all the same work as the Junior and Senior groups, with more emphasis on men's gymnastics for the boys.
