Children's Gymnastics

Children's gymnastics classes are for boys and girls ages 6-12.

Our 2022-2023 season begins on Monday, September 12, 2022 and runs until Saturday, June 24, 2023.

Children work and advance at their own pace, therefore we welcome children to join anytime during the season as long as space permits.


Curriculum

Our coaches follow a structured curriculum and children advance through progressive levels, earning a ribbon for each level that they master. Most children will require a full season (September to June) to achieve a level, with the higher levels requiring two or more full sessions. Children always work at their own pace. Children who want to advance more quickly may register for two classes a week.

Year End Event

Every June, we hold a competition and showcase for our recreational program participants. This is a fun event and an opportunity for parents to see the routines that the children learned in their class. Attendance is optional and there is an extra cost to participate.

Report Cards & Achievement Ribbons

Report cards are provided at the last class in June and ribbons are awarded at that time.

Recreational Programs

Novice Gymnastics (Girls Only)

Novice classes are for girls with natural strength, coordination and flexibility who love gymnastics! This class will suit the gymnast who is self-motivated and who has a strong desire to do quality gymnastics.

In these 90 minute classes, our coaches will expect a higher quality of execution on fundamental skills and basics which is essential to perform more advanced gymnastics.

Pre-Requisites: Girls must have completed at least one full season (September to June) of KinderGym or Beginner Gymnastics to register for this class.

Dress Code: In the novice classes, girls are required to wear a gymnastics leotard. Gymnastics shorts over the leotard are optional. Hair that is shoulder length or longer must be in a ponytail or bun. Children are barefoot in the gym.

There are two novice classes, they are both 90 minutes one time per week.

Girls who are interested in trying out for our competitive gymnastics team in the future are encouraged to register in this program and to sign up for two classes per week.

Co-Ed Beginner Gymnastics (Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3)

We offer two different beginner classes - Junior Beginner and Senior Beginner.

Junior Beginner: is for children ages 6-8

Senior Beginner: is for children 9-12.

In the beginner classes children learn the fundamentals of gymnastics. Coaches teach skill progressions and technique on vault, bars, beam and floor following a structured curriculum. Each child will advance at his/her own pace to achieve their personal best while building self-esteem, confidence and friendships in a fun and safe environment.

The Advanced classes are for children who are working Level 4 or higher.

The focus of this 1.5 hour class is to continuing building strength, endurance, flexibility and of course, gymnastics skills! Everyone will work at their own pace. Coaches will be looking for participants to improve their form and execution on existing skills while working on drills and progressions for more advanced skills.
