What is Wheel Gymnastics:

This elegant sport was invented in Germany in 1925 and was introduced to Newfoundland in 2012. Wheel Gymnastics trains the whole body, promotes coordination, strength and focus similar to artistic gymnastics while being very low impact. 

Students will learn the basic moves of all four disciplines of wheel gymnastics: straight line, spiral, vault and Cyr wheel. The group will also learn tricks with two or more people in one wheel and work on display routines.
