STRETCH YOUR LIMITS
Preschool and School Aged Recreational Gymnastics Classes (Ages 3 and up)
All classes follow USA Gymnastics Skill Progressions for safety and proper skill development. The primary focus is the safety of all participants. Additionally, developmental classes combine fun activities along with age appropriate skills. These classes are taught in a fun and creative way to encourage a healthier mental, physical and emotional lifestyle for the participants. In addition to skill development, classes also include character trait education including persistence, independence, problem solving and decision making. To help develop a positive self-image, students are taught to break down goals into manageable steps instead of huge overwhelming objectives that can bring failure and frustration. All coaches are USA Gymnastics members and hold a USA Gymnastics Instructor Certification. Our coaches are role models picked carefully to provide you with the most positive, encouraging inﬂuences for your child. Coaches are chosen not by their gymnastics trophies, but by their CHARACTER. They’re energetic, imaginative beings, knowledgeable in what gets children excited to learn and want to learn more.
Parkour, Free Running and Open Tumbling
Parkour is a training discipline using movement that aims to get from point A to point B in the most efficient way possible. Free running is the art of expressing oneself in his or her environment without limitation of movement. Athletes move using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves. These classes can include obstacle courses, running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, and the like, depending on what movement is deemed most suitable for the given situation. The goal is to try to maintain as much momentum as is possible in a safe manner.
