About Us

Aspiring Gymsports is a gymnastics club based in Wanaka, New Zealand. We aim to provide a broad range of gymnastic experiences for our community from babies to adults.

We are excited to have a growing membership, including over 300 recreational as well as competitive members, led by a team of dedicated and accomplished gymnastics coaches. Our competitive gymnasts compete in the Women's Artistic Gymastics (WAG) Steps, Men's Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) Levels and the Regional Competitive (Perform) Programme. Our Gym For All (GFA) recreational programmes are also very popular.

Aspiring Gymsports is open all year round during the school term (except public holidays), with gymnastics classes held Monday to Saturday each week (see our timetable for more info). We often run school holiday programmes outside of the regular school term.

Aspiring Gymsports is a not-for-profit organisation supported by a voluntary committee plus paid and volunteer coaches.
