Class Descriptions

Ages 18 Months – 3 years old Boys and Girls = Parent & Child Class

We use movement challenges and equipment set up to develop body awareness and large motor skill development. While children are attempting to learn very basic gymnastic skills, obstacle courses, jumping and climbing, they begin to make the transition from primary caregiver to adult instructor. Exercising and having fun together enhances the parent/child relationship. We require one adult per child enrolled in this class.

Ages 3&4 Boys and Girls = Kindergym

Kindergym is an introductory program to sequential gymnastics for boys and girls. Through a fun and stimulating environment with a set up that changes weekly, children learn basic body positions and core gymnastics skills. Through strength and flexibility training in circuits along with basic gymnastics technique they learn to focus and take instruction from an instructor. Parents are not allowed on the gym floor, but they may observe from the waiting room. Children are split into groups in which there is a 6 to 1 ratio child to coach. Anyone taking Kindergym must be fully potty trained. Classes are 45 minutes each.

Ages 5-7 Rainbow Girls and Thunder Boys (separate classes for boys and girls )

Rainbow and Thunder Boys serve as introductory and basic classes for 5-7 year-olds. This level is also for children that have a basic understanding of the core skills of gymnastics and are ready to move out of the Kindergym Program. The children begin more independent skills and learn a new class structure that does not involve as many circuits. The cartwheel, bridge, proper technique on front and back rolls, and the pullover on bars are the key focus skills at this age and level. Classes are 1 hour.

Basics

Basics is a beginner class for ages 7-up. This is a parallel class to Rainbow with age appropriate instruction differences. Basic body shapes and positions, terminology, and core skills provide an important base for the sport of gymnastics and athletics in general. There are separate classes for boys and girls. Boys basics can also be the next step following thunder-boys. Classes are 1 hour each.

Step Up

Challenge

Challenge is an advanced class for girls or boys. Focus skills move toward tumbling sequences, handstands and leaps on the balance beam, handstands on the vault, and sequences of skills on the bars. Boys are moving toward level 4 competitive skills on all 6 men’s events. Children will be placed into a challenge class from either rainbow, basics, or step-up. Class is 1 1/2 hours.
