1. What We do

RINKA classes are all-inclusive and age appropriate and focus on making fitness fun for all. We strive to offer alternatives to mainstream sports, ensuring we are helping all kids reach their physical activity requirements and not just those who love sports already.

Each term we focus on different aspects of our curriculum and each class ranges in activity from high-energy games and athletic skills to gymnastic skills and dance and movement. We ensure that every child is introduced to a range of skills and experiences in a fun-filled, non-competitive way.

We also place a huge importance on the overall well-being and mental health of children and each term includes nutritional education, mindfulness techniques and healthy lifestyle challenges.
