This unit focuses on the development of knowledge, understandings and technical skills of gymnastic commensurate with the requirements of the PDHPE years 7-10, Board of Studies syllabus and the Gymnastics Australia. Various aspects of fundamental and specialised movement skills development such as body control (including momentum, locomotion, balance and stability), anticipation and timing of movement, object manipulation and control, and gymnastic skills technique will be introduced through utilisation of different types of safe and progressive programming structures ranging from Kindergym and Gym Fun through to more formal structured programs of Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics as well as Sport Aerobics and Acrobatics. Understanding of features and elements of movement composition will be developed through participation in a variety of individual and group movement activities.

Practicum placements will be at the students own expense and in students own time. Resources are required for this unit and students will need to pay for these.
