Sorry, we are not currently offering homeschool gymnastics. Any homeschooled students are welcome to join any appropriate class above.
During this hour-long class students will experience many different activities. Each session begins with a warm-up game and stretching. Students then participate in two gymnastic events. To keep things fun and exciting, events rotate on a weekly basis. There is a strength component to each class and there will be obstacle courses in the mix as well. Instructional emphasis is placed on safety. The course is designed to help boys build a sense of responsibility, impulse control and self-confidence while enjoying running, jumping, rolling, kicking and flipping. Skills gained in this class help students excel in other sports by increasing coordination, stamina and flexibility. It is a great supplement to any other physical activities your son may be involved in.
This hour-long class is for homeschool students and is a fun way to fulfill their physical education requirements. Students will work on two gymnastics events each week. Through a mix of basic skill instruction, games and conditioning exercises, students will get a well-rounded workout each week.

for gymnasts/cheerleaders ages 6 and up
In this hour-long class, students are given drills that break down skills into achievable parts. Using the All-Star Cheer requirements as a guideline, tumbling skills have been divided into two progressive stages. Each student will work within the appropriate stage to their ability level. Time will be given at the end of each class to work lead-up drills for skills in the next stage so that all students get a taste of the skills they are striving for. Our focus is technically sound execution as cheer and gymnastics judges alike are looking for this in competition and it makes for a safe learning environment.
In this 90 minute class, students work toward mastering more advanced skills. Students in the Build class are invited to try out for the team in the spring. These students increase the intensity of their conditioning exercises to improve their stamina. Students in this class also work lead-up drills to prepare them for future skills.
In this hour-long class, students work toward learning skills they began in prior classes. They will also have new skills broken down into achievable parts until they too can be mastered. Along with skills, students in the Learn class also practice conditioning exercises to increase their strength, aiding in the acquisition of new skills. Gymnasts continue to work independently but are also spotted by the coach.
for gymnasts ages 5+
In this hour-long class, students learn the basic gymnastics terminology such as body positions and skills. They are encouraged by the coach to try basic skills and conquer fears. Over time, the gymnast will develop confidence working on the equipment and be able to work independently at stations.
for gymnasts ages 3-5
In this 45 minute class, the child explores the sport of gymnastics independent of their grown-up. Their coach will take the students through a structured but fun warm-up that incorporates play and imagination. They will be guided through an obstacle course on the floor, then another on a different apparatus.
for gymnasts up to age 3
In this 45 minute class, the child and their grown-up explore the sport of gymnastics together under the guidance of a coach. There will be a short but structured warm-up that will incorporate music and movement, followed by organized play through an obstacle course on the floor, then another on a different apparatus. No more than two adults are permitted in the gym area with each student.
