Kids in Motion at An Sportlann, Castlebar


Kids In Motion is a recreational gymnastics club for both girls and boys aged three to 14. The club also caters for primary schools as well as Transition Year students and holds gymnastics camps at Easter and in the summer. Kids In Motion is based at Rice College in Westport, Co Mayo, on Fridays and in An Sportlann, McHale Park, Castlebar, Co Mayo on  Saturdays.  We also travels 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

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. 

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. 

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.
