Sports and sporting organisations across Ōtautahi recognise that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is a thing of the past. Move Ability is specifically tailored for children with physical or mental impairments. 

This programme was created to ensure more tamariki in Ōtautahi have the opportunity to participate in the sport of Gymnastics in an environment where they feel supported and confident to give things a go. With the help of Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa Funding, and a partnership with the Halberg Foundation, Olympia have developed MoveAbility – a class specific to children with physical impairments. Olympia are looking to open the programme to the wider community to offer more children the opportunity to participate in a gymnastics class suited to their abilities. 

Available Class Times:

  • Sunday 11:30-12:30pm
  • Sunday 12:30-1:30pm

Price: $50 per term (based on a 10 week term)

PLEASE NOTE when registering, a child can either be enrolled in a class or placed on a wait list if the class is full:

    • Enrolment in a class - a child is confirmed in a class after an invoice has been sent via email. The invoice sends automatically upon completing the registration process.
    • Placed on a wait list - if an invoice is not received the child IS NOT enrolled on the portal. When on the wait list an orange "wait list" button is highlighted next to the class in the child's registration details. A child is moved from the wait list when a place becomes available and an invoice will be emailed. This confirms the child is enrolled in the class starting immediately.
    • Trial Class - we do not offer trial classes. If you wish to come along and observe a class from our Mezzanine area you are more than welcome to do so. Once you have booked, gymnasts are committed to the term of gymnastics classes.
    • Prompt Payment Discount: If term fees are paid before the due date noted on the invoice, you will be eligible for a 2% prompt payment discount (T&C's apply).
          • Late payment penalty: Late payment will incur a late payment penalty fee. You will not be able to enroll into a class for the next term if there are outstanding fees on your account.
