Why Take Gymnastics?

Some experts say that the greatest benefits of gymnastics training for children are physical: the amazing power, the 'unparalleled' balance, and injury preventing agility and grace. Other experts say thaKelsey on a Bart the benefits are to the mind: the perseverance, the poise, the confidence, the attention to detail, the concentration. Which is right? Our experts know. The answer is, without a doubt, both. In fact, professional gymnastics training is a requisite for all kids who want to learn how to become the best they can be in life. Sound gymnastics training is for all kids.

 Our Instructors

They are specially selected and trained to safely bring out the best in each child by encouraging each child.

Recreational Gymnastics Curriculum

Our recreational curriculum consists of 3 developmental levels. Level 1 (beginner), Level 2 (intermediate) & Level 3 (advanced) are designed to provide a non-competitive, achievement-oriented program of basic skills and progressions. In order to advance upward, the gymnast should pass the required points with a 75% proficiency at each event and level. As well as skill development, conditioning and flexibility exercises are introduced as well. We require a minimum proficiency in both of these areas to ensure a safe and successful experience.

Our Facility

It's no doubt that a tremendous facility can make a child's experience more enjoyable. We are extremely proud of our facility. It's loaded with the good stuff. This most important thing about our facility is that it's strictly used for our recreational kids. Our team kids have their facility down the street. That translates into more quality turns, and more consistent turns. Not a lot of programs can offer that to their recreational students.

Big Gym

Is advancement onto a novice competitive program available?

If a child is ready to advance out of the recreational program, we offer a more advanced program called Gold Nuggets. It is designed to introduce girls to more advanced skills, teach them routines on all olympic events, and if they are interested, participate in intermediate level competitions.

How do I determine which class my daughter needs?

We offer class times for Levels 1 & 2 at just about every hour. The majority of recreational children will fall into one of these 2 categories. Usually a good rule of thumb is; if she has never had formal gymnastics training start with Level 1. If she has been in our program previously, she should probably be assigned to Level 2. Our coaching staff will evaluate each child during the first few weeks, if they feel she has been misassigned, we'll contact you. Usually it's as easy as switching into another class during the same hour.

What should my child wear?

Girls should wear a leotard or shorts and a t-shirt, tucked in. For tumbling, bare feet are best. Hair should be pulled back for safety, as long hair interferes with rolling somersaulting and twisting skills. Please no gum or jewelry. We have a nice selection of gymnastics leotards in the Flip Flop Shop.

Trophy

Is there a recital at the end of the program?

We only do our M&M Olympics at the end of the School Year Program. Summer Programs will not have an Olympics.

Who is eligible to participate in the M&M Olympics?

All recreational students will be eligible to participate in the M&M Olympics the last week of session 4. This is our big end of the school year 'show-off' event. After demonstrating their skills, each child will climb atop the 'champions' podium and receive a trophy and 3 bags of M&M candies as a reward for all they've accomplished. Parents, Grandparents and Friends are encouraged to attend this exciting event.

 

What benefits does gymnastics have for boys?

Gymnastics training is the BEST program for developing basic, athletic, core fundamentals that young boys must have to participate in any sport. Strength, flexibility and coordination are just a few of the needs the physical body needs in order to be competitive. Confidence, self esteem and self worth are also developed and cultivated to help each boy reach his full potential.

Which Class is best for my son?

We use age as the primary variable to determining your child's class time. Boys 5 years old to 7 years old are grouped together regardless of skill ability. Same goes for the 8 years old and up.  We've found that most boys skill level in gymnastics is somewhere between beginner and intermediate.  Our staff can teach to the level of each child within each class.  So just pick a day and time that fits into your schedule, and leave the rest to us.

Trampoline

Are there more advanced programs available if my son has the talent?

Yes, we have several advanced programs for talented boys.  We have hotshot programs for advanced boys. These programs are by invitation only.  The coaching staff evaluates all the boys, and then make recommendations to the parents if they feel a boy needs to be placed in an advanced program.

What do the boys wear?

Boys should wear a shorts and a t-shirt, tucked in. For tumbling, bare feet are best. Please no gum.

Boys participate in the M&M Olympics too, right?  YES!
