Introduction and Programme Content
Children love pole! It’s just great fun; you can climb, invert, throw yourself around it and use up a lot of energy, evacuate stress and laugh out loud with your friends :-).
In our childrens’ classes, we channel this energy in order to learn the correct technique, taking care of safety and in an inclusive and welcoming environment. We also practice gymnastic figures, such as forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, bridges, handstands and headstands.
This sport trains the whole body, focusing on strength, flexibility, balance and fitness. It also comes hand in hand with improving self-confidence.
For those children who really click with the sport and want to develop further, there will also be the possibility in the future to prepare competitions. We underline that this is in no means an obligation and that these classes are equally focused on amusement as on technique.
The classes will start at beginner level in September 2021. A level 2 will also be on offer from February 2022.
Our classes suit all children from age 8 to 15.
Outfit and to bring to class
It is essential to wear gymnastics shorts or a leotard in order to be able to grip the pole with the legs, including the thighs. A T-shirt may be worn on top, with a sports bra/crop top underneath (if not wearing a leotard) for girls. Leggings or jogging bottoms may be worn during the warm up. We train on the pole with bare feet.
Please bring a large bottle already filled with water, as well as a small towel for wiping down the pole.
