Gymnastics Classes For Girls

**This page lists the various gymnastics classes offered for girls.  It does not include the girls competitive team (levels 4-10)**

If you have a preschool aged child…please visit the “Preschool Gymnastics” Page

All of our classes start with approximately 8 minutes of warm-ups. Stretching promotes a healthy life style and is occasionally done in the middle or at the end of the workout. Classes sometimes finish with 2 to 3 minutes of fun time in the foam pits, swing, trampolines, zip line, or with the parachute. Most classes usually cover 3 events. Our coaches continually strive to bring fun and excitement to each class by introducing new skills, and practice drills.

We believe each student should be praised for their individual accomplishments and abilities, not compared to other students.  We want children to achieve their personal best in our classes.  Our classes are fun and fast paced.  We expect students to walk away with a sense of good self-esteem and having been physically challenged in our classes.  Students progress at different rates in gymnastics; students may sometimes remain at the same level for 1 or more years. This does not mean they are not learning and progressing.  Gymnastics is a difficult sport and pushing students into levels and skills they are not ready for may cause them unnecessary harm physically and emotionally.  Students wishing to move up may want to consider taking two classes per week. Your child’s coach will notify you when your child is ready for the next level. Please feel free to inquire about your child’s progress with the teacher or club director.

 

Mini Beginning Girls (1 hour class, Ratio 8 students – 1 coach)

Students begin by practicing loco motor skills, such as jogging, galloping, skipping, hopping, and chasses to warm up their muscles.  After that, they do approximately three rotations consisting of either tumbling, bars, balance beams, vault or trampoline. By the end of this program children should have a basic ability to perform handstands, forward rolls, cartwheels and bridges and move on the beam with confidence. They should be able to swing comfortably and perform basic skills on bars. Girls from this class will move to Advance Beginning Girls after demonstrating a bridge kick over down an incline mat, a coordinated cartwheel to finish, and a pull over on bars.
