GymStars Gymnastics Club opened its door to the public in July of 2003 with only 40 registered members and 3 coaching staff. It is now the most established gymnastics centre on the island with over 600 members catering for children as young as 18 months to National Team members.
At GymStars, we ensure to provide a safe and fun environment for your children to learn gymnastics. We have a place of children for all ages and abilities. We believe that every child CAN. We get as much satisfaction in seeing one of our youngest gymnasts perform a forward roll to those achieving an advanced skill. We believe in motivation and encourage each child to do the best they can.
GymStars has also joined forces with the Yada Dance Academy forming the GymStars, Yada Dance Academy, Tarxien offering various programs for Ballet, Hip-Hop and Jazz under the direction of Felix Busuttil and Daron Galea.
GymStars has also recently opened its doors in Balzan and Pembroke for recreational gymnastics to accomodate other parts of the island!
GymStars is the club that has produced some of the best athletes in gymnastics in Malta having the honour of having one of its athletes bringing to Malta its first Gymnastics Medal in the history at the Small Nation Games in Monaco, 2007. Our club is the only one that took better initiatives to better the standard of our athletes and of Gymnastics in general, the most prominent being the organization of International Competitions held every year - in July and December.
With these competitions, we have managed to bring over athletes of high standard from places well-known in the sport such as Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Holland, Belgium, England, Slovenia, Sweden, Wales, Scotland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Luxembourg, Jordan and many more and helped to give a yearly spectacle to the sporting public.
Our curriculum encourages progress on an individual basis based on the student's own progress chart. The classes are not competitive but aim at encouraging students to improve the skills they already have. Students are assigned to classes according to their own personal skills. Our classes levels start from Recreational Beginners to the more competitive Junior Teams and Elite.
Our Club is equipped with the newest designs of gymnastics equipment for both men and women. We keep our equipment up-to-date to ensure that our athletes have the best. All equipment is FIG (Federation Internationale de Gymnastique) approved.
