Pre-School Program Coed Girls Program Boys Program

Koala Bears: Pre-requisite: None. This is a class for 2 and 3 year olds who have not been exposed to structured class environments and may need parent assistance entering class. Students in this class will learn beginning gymnastics skills on equipment sized just for them in a fun and safe environment. The moment the child enters the preschool gym, sharing, taking turns, building self-confidence and working together becomes our focus with our lesson plans. We incorporate age appropriate academic activities. We strive to keep this class with a 3 to 1 student to teacher ratio.

Girls Beginner: This class will teach the school aged gymnast the basic skills on each of the 4-Olympic events for girls: Vault, Bars, Beam, and Floor. We teach this class using circuits and basic progressions, by using a variety of equipment including pit, trampoline and basic drill stations. This class is for those girls that have successfully completed the Pre-Beginner class or are in 1st through 7th grades.

Boys Level 1/2: This class is boys only. This class is for those boys who have successfully passed through the Pre-Beginner class or are in the 1st through 7th grades. This class will teach beginning skills on all 6-Men's Olympic events.
