YOUNG CHILDREN GYMNASTICS
TWINKLES (Parents and tots)
Our Twinkles Parents and tots program ages 2-3 is an entry level program that is all about fun and building coordination and strength while enjoying time with a parent or guardian by their side! With every class, students explore movement and increase flexibility. They build confidence while having so much fun! It is the perfect opportunity to introduce young ones to a gymnastics experience that will give them the confidence to move forward on their own to our Moonbeams program the following year. It’s a fun time for parents and children alike!!
Our Twinkles, ages 2-3 is an entry level program that is all about fun and building coordination and strength. This program is designed for very young children who are ready to work independently of their parents with one of our instructors. With every class, students explore movement and increase flexibility. They build confidence while having so much fun! It is the perfect opportunity to introduce young ones to a gymnastics experience that will give them the confidence to move forward into our Moombeams program following year. It’s a fun filled first experience for our youngest gymnasts!!
Our Moonbeams, ages 3 to 4 ½, learn about the larger spatial ideas that are important to safety and structure for young gymnasts. Ideas such as understanding their boundaries, balance, flexibility, and smaller acrobatic skills are gained here. With every class, students have set goals to achieve which leads to a sense of accomplishment and pride in their achievements.
Our Comets, ages 4 to 5½, take Moonbeams goals to the next level, having accomplished skills in Moonbeams or having achieved these skills in other gymnastics programs. Their curriculum is expanded with added skills on all of the apparatus while continuing to work on strengthening the technique of their previously learned skills.
Our Shooting Stars, ages 5 to 7, focuses more on muscle control and body awareness. At a young age like this, we have seen much progress in our students due to their willingness to attempt various skills. Students achieve greater strength, flexibility and coordination and move forward with acrobatic skills as they are ready. Our Shooting Stars truly shine.
Our Fireballs, ages 6 to 8, take off where Shooting Stars ended, pursuing this next level of this program or having achieved these skills in other gymnastics programs. Students continue to develop greater strength, flexibility and coordination and move on to the more advanced skills that they will now be ready to take on.
OLDER CHILDREN and TEEN GYMNASTICS
Our Rising Stars, ages 8 to 11, really pump up our gym with their boundless energy. Ready to learn, our Rising Stars begin to jump into tumbling and primary beam, bars and vaulting skills. Balance and flexibility exercises are presented and agility is stressed. Even from a galaxy away, one can see the control and strength they accomplish.
Our Meteors, ages 9 to 12, take the skills learned in our Rising Stars programs, to the next level. Meteors move quickly and accomplish more advanced balance and flexibility exercises, stressing more advanced floor work, tumbling and beam, bars and vaulting skills. Drills and progressions are emphasized to prepare our stars to succeed.
Our Novas, ages 9 to 12, are intermediate students coming from our Meteors program or the outside that already possess tumbling, beam, bars, and vaulting skills that are ready to fly. Core strength, balance and flexibility continue to be stressed. along with even more advanced skills through drills and progressions on all of the apparatus.
AGES 11 & UP
Age 11 and up are labeled teen gymnastics or teen acrobatics classes. From beginner thru advanced, our teens build strength, agility, flexibility and confidence. Working on tumbling, beam, bars and vaulting, our instructors lead them through drills and progressions designed to help them achieve the maximum results. We help dancers, cheerleaders and athletes achieve their acrobatic and gymnastics goals in a safe and nurturing environment.
