Hi tree nymph,

Okie, based on my receipt in March this year, I paid $360 for 12 weeks. There is a reg fee of S50 (one time only) and if my memory serves me right, there is a discount for siblings too, think 5% or 10%.

Hope this helps :D

Hi jce,

How old is your gal & which day do you send her? My kids are in Prime too, maybe we met before???

My DD is now taking gym privately and i will most probably send her to a school nearby. But the school do not have gymnastics and i am thinking if DD can represent her school in gym, can she register that as her CCA and not take on more CCA. Will it be a uphill task to take this approach or shld i really look for a school that has gym as a CCA? She's currently taking artistic and rhythmic gym.


yes, your dd can represent the school if the school is willing to submit her participation for the competition. Inter-schools competition is usually held in April. Am sure u can talk to the Head of CCA abt it. The only "problem" is maybe she can't qualify for team events if the school team has less than 5 members in the same category.


Hi b2b3m4,
Is your DD in P1?
U could approach the school CCA HOD, to register for Inter-school competition For Gym Competitions. Even if the school does not send any school team, you could enter as Individual competitor.
Saw some competitors did this in the past competitions.

However, check with your coach - some events like Uneven Bars in Artistic Gym may need Coach to be present during the competition, else deduction of marks.

Also, separate competition for Rhythmic Gym - Inter-school Minimum Level is : Level 1 FreeHand Group - Team of 5 event. No individual event for Level 1.
Level 2 (Ball, Rope) - can participate for Individual events.

You can try Sports Council one at Bishan Sports Hall. Heard they closed for 1 year for YOG. Could be opened now. Price is very reasonable and 2 times a week 2 hours each time. Full Gym facility. Min. age is 4.

Gym Class

Post by Kokko » Tue Oct 12, 2010 10:05 am

Thanks Yellow Belt.

The "problem" I had is the timing conducted by the SSC. Weekday between 3 - 5 pm is the sleeping time for my boy. Furthermore the travelling time is another factor. I have to bother my mum to bring him there which Ithink is not so nice (I'm a working mum).

I manage to find one gym class (named prime gym) on Saturday at 12.00 (located at Toa Payoh) and now is still considering very hard due to
the travelling distance (again) (almost 1.5 hours from Sengkang and needs to change 4 transportation !!).

Anyway I will not not give up but to source again for other gym lesson which is near my area (hopefully).

Once again thanks for your recommendation and have a nice day.

Cheers
Kokko
