Gymnastics

 

 

            

Gymnastics class is physically demanding; active children find that learning to focus their energy is both fun and rewarding. But gymnastics is also an important tool for early childhood education. Not only does gymnastics provide strength and conditioning that the child will use later on in a variety of team sports, gymnastics includes bilaterally symmetrical body movements that enhance perceptual skills.

              

Gymnastics training provides sequencing drills of a motor nature that prepare the child for cognitive sequencing activities. Gymnastics provides an activity that a young child can enjoy, while enhanced neurological pathways are being built. It is not an accident that of all NCAA college athletes, gymnastics team members have the highest grade point averages.

 

           

Classes offered:

              

Toddlers Gymnastic Classes

Using our small-size gymnastics equipment in our special "gym" area, we instruct you to safely guide your children into the exploration of basic body movement, gymnastics body positions, strength, and flexibility.

This is a high activity 45-minute class that meets once or twice per week.

 

Starting with BASIC BODY POSITIONS, we follow a progressive curriculum that includes real gymnastics skills, and FUN games with a purpose. We use basic gymnastics equipment (downsized for toddler to pre-school children).

 

Pre-school gymnastics classes

Designed for children 3-5 years old girls and boys. This is a high activity 45-minute class that meets once or twice per week.

Classes will include segments devoted to general motor and body position skills; general strength, balance, sequencing activities, and skills specific to gymnastics apparatus.

They will also learn more difficult strength, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, and motor skills. 

                

Recreational gymnastics classes

These classes are designed for children age 5 1/2 and older. Using our professional gymnastics equipment in our facility, we instruct your children in basic body movements, gymnastics body positions, strength, and flexibility.

This is a high activity 60-minute class that meets once or twice per week.

Classes will include segments devoted to general motor and body position skills; general strength, balance, and sequencing activities, and skills specific to Tumbling and Cheerleading.  Skills are learned in progression, with one skill building upon skills already learned.  Students may progress at their own pace, and our instructors will work with each child at the level of their current ability, and increase the difficulty as they increase their ability level.
