(Kindergarten and up)

Our school age girl’s gymnastics classes focus on teaching a carefully designed curriculum of progressive skills on the women’s artistic gymnastics events – Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor as well as on the TumbleTrak and trampolines. These classes for girls in Kindergarten and older build strength, flexibility, endurance, coordination, and self-confidence while students are learning and having fun with the sport of gymnastics. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves and given the opportunity to celebrate accomplishments to form a strong sense of self.

ATTIRE: Girls must wear a leotard with no skirt attached to it and no tights. Tight fitting gymnastics shorts are allowed.

What to expect/goals from your class:
