Our Recreational Classes focus on learning basic gymnastics positions and skills and implementing them on all events. We want kids to enjoy learning in a safe and noncompetitive environment. Your athlete will begin each class with a group warm-up employing their large muscle groups and raising their hear rate. Our informative/highly trained coaches will teach them to stretch, work on bridges and splits at a level comfortable to each individual.
Your gymnast will develop large motor skills and coordination in this introductory class. Parent participation is required in this fun class where we will crawl and jump, roll and dance our way in to gymnastics.
Designed for our preschoolers, this class is designed for your gymnast to work without the help of a parent by their side. Continuation of large motor skill development and coordination will help your child learn to follow instruction and explore their bodies’ movement in an atmosphere of color and fun.
Gymnasts will focus on core strength, arm strength, and the coordination necessary to learn handstands, cartwheels and forward rolls – the fundamental building blocks of almost all gymnastics skills. They will spend time hanging, swinging, and supporting themselves on the bars in order to build the necessary strength to pull over onto the bars. Balance and coordination on beam will continue to improve through repetition of waling, jumping and kicking, leading into turns and leaps. The focus on vault will begin with proper running technique, skipping and hurdling drills, leading to jump ups and squat on. All athletes will grow at their individual pace with encouragement and positive reinforcement from our professional coaching staff.
All Recreational classes are designed to be a continuation of skills and growth from the previous class. In Super Beginner, your athlete will continue to build strength and gain flexibility. They will begin learning backward rolls, bridge and kick overs. Having the strength necessary to do a pull-over allows the gymnast to focus on casting and back hip circles on bars. A renewed emphasis on developing balance and coordination on beam through walking, jumping and turning, allows the student to gain confidence and begin working on levers and handstands. Proper running technique will still be focus on vault and students will begin learning handstand flat backs.
Gymnasts will continue to work bridge and kick overs, eventually shifting to walkover skills when individually ready. They will be learning handstand forward rolls, and begin working round offs. As your athlete builds more core and arm strength, they will star working glide swings and stride circles on bars. Handstands will continue to be a focus on beam, working not only ¾ handstands, but also cartwheel to handstand dismounts. They will begin learning handspring vaults in this level as well as working how to block off their hands in a handstand.
Having been taught the fundamentals in the last three levels, your gymnast has gained the strength, agility, balance and coordination to begin working on a wide array of tumbling skills. From front limbers, to round off back handsprings, they will love all the great skills they will be able to work. Their strong glide swings on bars can turn into a kip. They will learn a shoot through and front hip circles, all the while getting stronger and better. On beam they will have confidence in their jumps and turns and now begin working leaps and cartwheels. They will continue to work handsprings on vault and can eventually work up to vaulting over the table.
Cheerleaders, dancers and gymnasts alike can benefit from our Trampoline and Tumbling class. Offering weekly training on just these two activities, it’s a perfect class for those interested in tumbling and trampoline without the other gymnastics events.
