Gymnasts invited to participate in these classes must be able to perform all skills required by USAG for any level. These classes are geared towards readying gymnasts for competitive gymnastics.
Tiny Tumblers: This class is designed for young gymnasts (usually ages 4-6) who have shown their physical & social readiness to participate in a class that is based on skill progression vs. strictly age. The Tiny Tumbler class will focus on building a solid foundation by perfecting basic skills on all 4 events, and exposing gymnasts to basic flexibility and strength training. The class is taught in a positive, fun & interactive environment to hopefully continue to build the bond between the sport of gymnastics and the athlete. This class meets for 1 hour, 1-2 times per week depending on the level that each gymnast is ready to participate at.
Fantastic Flippers: This is the next step for gymnasts who are ready for more of a challenge. Gymnasts will start to become more independent in the gym, and start working on the first level of compulsory skills set by USA Gymnastics. They will also start to learn skill sequences and build an aptitude for learning routines which will be essential for any future competitive gymnastics they may pursue. Emphasis is on proper technique & form as well as strength, flexibility and of course, FUN! This class meets 2 times per week for 1.5 hours each class.
