About Us

Whangarei Academy of Gymnastics (WAGS) was founded in 1991 and was previously located at 18 Winger Cres in Kamo. Our new gym at Park Ave in Kensington is now complete. We moved in the weekend of October 20th, 2012.


Our gym is well equipped with all men's and women's apparatus as well as competition trampolines. We provide gymnastic programmes for all ages of children through to young adults from beginners through to advanced competition. We run holiday programmes and can take bookings for school groups and birthday parties. We also have trampoline classes for beginners and competitive athletes.


At WAGS, we provide an encouraging environment that is safe, exciting and rewarding for all those who attend our programmes.

The gymnastics programmes that WAGS provides helps to enhance the mental and physical development of growing children. Participants develop their balance, coordination, agility, strength, flexibility, confidence, spatial awareness while enhancing their mental development all at the same time!

The first person you will be greeted by will most likely be our office administrator extrodinaire Wendy White. She has been with us since March 2019. 

The driving force of the gym is the one and only Vicki Mcdonald who has been in gymnastics for over four decades  and is a wealth of information. 

Our Head coaches are all credits to their codes and to our gym family.
