2. Gymnastics, Strength and Conditioning Program 

At Ascot Park Primary School, we offer a Gymnastics Strength and Conditioning (GSC) Program for internal and external students. Girls and boys of all levels can trial for our GSC programs and, if successful, will be selected into the appropriate skill levelled program; advanced, intermediate or development. There are no more than 10 in a training group to allow individualised planning and coaching for each athlete.

All programs are run by highly qualified and professional coaches who are expected to plan and implement high-level programs, aligned to the Australian Curriculum and designed to support progression through the Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Australian Levels Programs.
Trainings are run by Andrew Cordery twice a week; Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7 - 8:30am.

3. School Gymnastics for ALL program 

Students at Ascot Park Primary School participate in one 50 minute lesson of gymnastics a week. This session is run by the Schools Gymnastics Coach and qualified teacher, Andrew Cordery. Students participate in these lessons as apart of their Physical Education Curriculum. 

4. Gym-JETS 

Ascot Park has been the home of the Gymnastics Focus Class since 1989. Known as the Gym-JETS (Gymnastics Junior Elite Talent Squad), the aim of the elite gymnastics program is to produce gymnasts of national ranking who will represent Australia in international competitions whilst providing a high quality primary academic and social learning program based at Ascot Park R-7 Physical Education and Sport School.
The gymnasts follow a flexible learning program based around their training schedule and all students travel by school bus to and from their training. Students who wish to be apart of the Gym-JETS program need to trail with Gymnastics SA.
