WHAT IS GYMNASTICS?
Gymnastics is for every child who loves to run, jump, swing, climb and have fun. No matter what sport your child may go on to play, gymnastics will teach the base of it. The benefits include balance, strength, flexibility, coordination, agility, and spatial awareness. All of our classes are taught in progressions. We will not push a child past their limits but promise to challenge each child individually. Every child learns differently and so their challenges and progression may be different. FUN still exists whatever program the gymnasts are involved in! Each class has yearly Lesson Plans and Skill Sheets tracking each child’s progressive learning. Another important value of doing gymnastics is learning many life skills such as confidence, discipline, motivation, hard work, dedication, and goal setting.
Preschool and Kinder
Our preschool classes are for girls and boys walking to age 6. Our curriculum is based on developing important skills: physically, mentally, and socially. Our program emphasizes having fun while learning.
Walking up to 3.6 yrs
Toddlers participate, along with a parent or caregiver in a playful class setting working through a wide variety of stations. The focus is on developing coordination through motor skills, muscle strength, and balance using tot-size apparatus with a strong emphasis on socialization and group involvement.
Classes are 45 minutes.
Ages 3.6 up to 4.6 yrs
No parents are needed here. There are mountains to climb, canyons to jump, vines to swing and tramps to jump on. More physically challenging skills give kids stronger bodies and sharper minds as well as a clearer understanding of their bodies’ capabilities and limitations.
Classes are 50 minutes.
4.6 up to 6 yrs
These kids are beginning to really step out and MOVE. We know it is even more essential that their physical challenges be monitored for safety. K—stars are able to handle a class that is skill-oriented. As the year moves along, we will challenge the kids progressively with more skills and less general movement. This way we prepare the child, physically and mentally, for our Boys and Girls gymnastics programs
Classes are 50 minutes.
Ages 6 and up.
New gymnastics skills are introduced in a fun and progressive manner. Through developing gymnastics skills our students enhance their balance, strength, flexibility, coordination, spatial awareness & fitness activity. Gymnastics’ class is a wonderful cross-training for other sports too. Regular evaluations of students’ progress allow advancing to the next level at their own pace.
Girls/Boys 1 – beginning
Each gymnast at the age of 6, a first-time student, or a returning student, will enter into our Girls/Boys 1. Here they are taught basic gymnastics skills which are foundation skills for many sports. They will learn in a repetitious manner and be checked for progress every month by their coach.
Girls/Boys 2 – intermediate
Gymnasts will move on to Girls/Boys 2 with current coach approval and with completion of skills from the Level 1 program, which are a foundation and PROGRESSION of skills for this next group.
Girls/Boys 3 & 4 – advanced
Same as above, although the skills are more difficult and challenging.
