Our Programs

Little Sprouts is a movement program for children aged five years and under.

InMotion Academy’s Little Sprouts program ensures infants can experience a wide range of movement activities and be encouraged to think, create, construct and solve problems with their own bodies.

Adults are encouraged to accompany their child throughout each lesson to support their learning and have fun together.

Gym Kidz is just that. FUN!

In Gym Kidz , we focus on the fundamental movement patterns that will help kids to then progress into more advanced skills or activities.

The activities in Gym Kidz are safe and encourage kids to work with others, cooperate and build self-esteem.

Gym Kidz is our most sought after gymnastics program.

 

Ninga Kidz a fun! fast paced! high energy! class specifically designed for boys and girls aged 4 -9 years.

Learn how to direct  energy into body awareness and develop strength, co-ordination, gross motor and social skills.

In Gym Kidz the question may be “was the landing good”, in Ninja Kidz the question is likely to be “was that as far, high or as fast”  Always in the envelope of safety.

 

 

Our venue provides a fun and stimulating environment for children to explore with a supervising adult.  Ideal for home schooling or just to have some fun time out out of the house.

Kids involved in Senior Gym will improve their fitness but keeping fun in the mix is a priority.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Fees

  • Fees are charged monthly in advance of attendance (We are not school term based).
  • Fees are based on the length of the session (Note: These fees are for our public recreational classes, with group ratios of up to 12 children to a single coach. Fees differ for privately booked classes and events).
Length Cost
45 minutes $16.50
60 Minutes $22.50
90 Minutes $32.50
  • All enrolments require an electronic payment method.
  • Fees are automatically charged to your preferred billing method on the 1st of each month, which is an advanced payment for that month’s classes (class rate x how many sessions are in that given month).
  • Our system automatically detects when classes are not running (e.g. due to public holidays) and adjusts payments accordingly.
  • From 2024 the session fees include registration and insurance.  We do not have equipment, fundraising, family or venue fees.  While we require 30 day notice for dropping a session there is also no drop fee. If you are comparing clubs ask if they have these additional fees,

Fees On Enrolment

Upon enrolment, the fees are calculated until the end of first the month. E.g. If you register for a Monday Class in the middle of the month, the system will count the number of non-public holiday Mondays between the start date and the end of the month and will bill you for this amount.

Monthly Fee Processing

On the first of the month following your enrolment and each subsequent first of the month, fees will be calculated and charged to your preferred payment method.  This takes into account public holidays and other days the gym may not be open.  E.g. If you enrol in a Monday class, at the beginning of the year there are many public holidays and the system knows not the charge for these days.  When the system successfully processes your payment a receipt is sent to your email.  You can see statements on the parent portal. This payment method rolls over automatically on the first of each month until you would like to stop, in which 30 days notice is required in writing to cease the automatic payment system and finalise your account.

Failed payments

If your preferred payment method declines our transaction you will be automatically notified and we will send you a statement showing you the outstanding amount. The system re-processes failed transactions three business days after the first of the month please ensure your account has sufficient funds to avoid additional transaction fees.  The transaction processing company and your bank may charge additional fees for declined payments, in addition In Motion Gymnastics reserves the right to recover the cost of processing late fees and debt collection.

Suspension due to payment failure

If we have not received payment or come to an arrangement about payment by the 15th of the month you will receive an email requesting you to pay the outstanding fees before your child attends their next class.  We consider this action a last resort and will have attempted to contact you before this happens.  If you are having problems paying your bill please call us.  Note this does not reduce the requirement to give us 30 days’ notice of your intent to drop the class.

 

 

 

What is the difference between Ninja and Gym Kidz?

 

Both programmes use the same gymnastics based equipment, with some variations of how its used.

 

The Gym Kidz programme is based on the fundamental movement skills.  Participants learn the body shapes, gymnastics terminology, balance and fundamental movement skills in a fun and supportive environment.

 

What to wear:

Children should wear clothes that they are comfortable exercising in. This may include sportswear such as shorts or leggings and a singlet or t-shirt. They may also wear gymnastics or dancing attire such as a leotard or training crop tops and bike shorts. Please no dresses, skirts, jeans or belts as this is a safety hazard when on the equipment. Please ensure children attend their class with jewellery removed and hair tied up. Shoes and socks will be removed prior to the class beginning and placed in a pigeon hole provided.

What to bring?

Please remember to bring a drink bottle, shoes to wear upon entry and exit of the premises and any medically required resources (such as asthma puffers).

What happens if I forget my drink bottle on the day?

Due to the current and ongoing Covid 19 restrictions, we are unable to allow gymnasts to drinking directly from our chilled & filtered water fountain, and to that end the bubbler section has been disabled.  Shared cups are also discouraged as are single-use disposable cups.  We are more than happy to let or assist gymnasts re-fill their water bottles should they run out during their session.

We encourage all gymnasts to bring a water bottle to their session, however, should a gymnast not have a water bottle, t In Motion will provide a 500ml water bottle at a cost of $2 and this cost will be added to your next fee.

 

Do I have to stay for the duration of my child’s class?

For classes with children aged 0-4 years old’s (e.g. Kinder Gym and Free Play), parent/guardian participation in the class is required, so a caregiver must remain for the entirety of the class. However in classes for children aged 4+ (e.g. Gym Fun and Ninja), parents are not required to stay. If you and your child are comfortable, we generally encourage parents not to stay for the duration of the class due to limited parking and viewing space.

Parking

Unfortunately, there is limited parking at the venue. Out of respect to our neighbours, please ensure that you are not parking in their designated car parks during their opening hours (7:00 am – 4:30 pm, this is particularly important for our classes running in the morning/throughout the day when caregiver participation is required). These parking bays are indicated by signage from Lasting Impressions (indicated by the red square to the left side of the image) and the car parks behind the white bollards from Suburban Smash Repairs (indicated by the red square to the right side of the image).

Parking is available out the front of our venue (blue square in the image), you are also able to park along the street and grassed areas out the front of the complexes (yellow in the image), or if you don’t mind a short walk, there is some additional parking in various locations around the block. If you and your child are comfortable, we generally encourage parents not to stay for the duration of the class due to the limited parking (where caregivers are not required to participate). Child safety is our number one priority, please ensure that children are always supervised in the car park and whilst crossing the road.

Map

 

After you have enrolled in a class (not a trial) your child will stay enrolled in that class until you notify us in writing that you would like to stop.  The parent portal can be used to request a transfer to a different class or to drop a class. 

We require 30 days’ notice to drop any class and the system will calculate the end date of your enrolment.

Each gymnast can have one make-up session per month if we are notified of the absence at least an hour before the scheduled class.  The make-up token is generated automatically when the roll is taken in the session and the gymnast is confirmed to be absent.  This token is then available for use to come to another suitable session.  This session does not have to be the same type of class, for example, your child can come and try a ninja class even though they are enrolled in Gym Fun.

Make-up tokens are a self-service offer only and will not be granted if notice is by phone, email or social media,  The absence must be recorded in the parent portal.

All normally scheduled classes run during the school holidays.  We may run additional holiday programs during school holidays and as members, you will be given priority notice before opening them up to the public.

.

We do not open the gym on public holidays.  All fees are calculated to ensure that you do not pay for public holidays.  This means the Mondays have many days where there is no classes in the beginning of the year.

We will endeavour to provide your session with a suitable coach at all times.  If we are unable to do this for some reason like sudden illness or an accident we will reschedule the lesson. 

If your child cannot attend the rescheduled lesson then we will provide additional makeup tokens, If for some reason we cannot reschedule the class then we will credit the class to your account.

Policies

POLICY STATEMENT
InMotion Academy is committed to providing a sport and work environment free of discrimination and harassment (sexual or otherwise), where individuals are treated with respect and dignity. InMotion Academy  will not tolerate discriminatory or harassing behaviour under any circumstances and will take disciplinary action against anyone who breaches this Policy.

InMotion Academy is committed to ensuring that the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children is maintained at all times during their participation in activities run by InMotion Academy. Accordingly, any person involved in the instruction, management or coaching of any member under the age of 18 years may be asked to undergo screening procedures including police and other probity checks.

POLICY APPLICATION
This Policy applies to all members of InMotion Academy, ie employees, officers, administrators, volunteers, coaches, judges, and athletes. This Policy applies equally to all members of the club.

This Policy applies to behaviour occurring both within and outside the course of InMotion Academys business, activities and events, when the behaviour involves Members and negatively affects relationships within the InMotions Academy’s sport and work environment.

POLICY COVERAGE
Discrimination and all forms of harassment are unlawful under Federal, State and Territory law. People engaging in such conduct can have legal action taken against them under these laws. In some cases, legal action can also be taken against the organisation for which they work or represent. For this reason, InMotion Academy has a legal responsibility to ensure that discrimination or harassment does not occur in the course of any InMotion Academy’s activities.

The law is always the minimum standard for behaviour within InMotion Academy and therefore any criminal offence will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

Discrimination

It is unlawful to treat anyone unfairly on the basis of various attributes or personal characteristics in key areas of public life.

A Member must not treat a person less favourably than another person on the basis of an attribute (such as race, sex, age, marital status, sexuality, pregnancy or intellectual or physical impairment) than someone else without that attribute in the same or similar circumstances.

Indirect discrimination is also unlawful. This means that a Member cannot impose a requirement, condition or practice that is the same for everyone, but which has an unequal or disproportionate effect or result on articular groups. Unless this type of requirement is reasonable in all the circumstances it is likely to be indirect discrimination, even if there was never any intention to discriminate.

Harassment
Harassment can take many forms but can generally be defined as unwelcome verbal or written comments,  conduct or gestures directed toward an individual or group of individuals that the harasser knows, or should reasonably be expected to know, is insulting, intimidating, humiliating, malicious, degrading or offensive.

Sexual harassment is behaviour that has a sexual element, which is unwelcome and could reasonably be expected, in the circumstances in which it occurs, to offend, humiliate or intimidate the person or people at whom it is directed.

A Member must not engage in any form of harassment, including:
• Written, verbal or physical abuse or threats;
• Unwelcome physical contact;
• The display of offensive materials;
• Promises or threats in return for sexual favours;
• Unwelcome sexual comments, jokes or propositions;
• Homophobic comments or behaviours; &
• Jokes or comments directed at a person’s body, looks, age, race, disability,sexuality, marital status or pregnancy.

Intimate Relations
InMotion Academy takes the view that intimate sexual relationships between coaches and athletes, while not necessarily constituting unlawful harassment, can have harmful effects on the individual athlete involved, on other athletes and coaches, and on the sport’s public image.

Because there is always a risk that the relative power of the coach has been a factor in the development of such relationships, InMotion Academy takes the position that such relationships should be avoided by coaches working at all levels.

Should a sexual relationship develop between an athlete and a coach, InMotion Academy will investigate whether any action against the coach is necessary. If InMotion Academy determines that the sexual relationship is inappropriate, action may be taken to terminate the coaching relationship with the athlete. Action may include transfer of the coach or, if this is not feasible, a request for resignation or dismissal from employment or coaching duties.

In the event that an athlete attempts to initiate an intimate sexual relationship, the coach must take personal responsibility for discouraging such approaches, explaining the ethical basis for such action.

The law is always the minimum standard for behaviour within InMotion Academy and therefore sex with a minor, of either the same or the opposite sex, is a criminal offence and will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

Victimisation
A Member must not subject any person to victimisation. Victimisation means subjecting a person, or threatening to subject a person, to any detriment or unfair treatment because that person has or intends to pursue his or her right to make a complaint or support another person in making a complaint against another person.

Child Protection
Members must not employ or engage a person (whether paid or unpaid) to coach or otherwise supervise a child under the age of 18 years without first:

  1. Requiring that person to disclose whether or not he or she has been convicted of a serious sex offence
  2. Conducting a police or other appropriate probity check on that person. A Member must notify the appropriate authorities (such as the Commission for Children and Young People WA) of:
    1. Any applicants for employment that the Member rejected as a result of risks
      identified through screening processes
    2. The name and other identifying details of any person against whom relevant
      disciplinary proceedings have been completed by the Member in relation to child
      abuse (sexual or otherwise) irrespective of the findings.
