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.
