BEGNNER BOYS ages 5+
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.
* Wednesdays 4-5 PM
In this 2 hour class, students work toward mastering more advanced skills. These students increase the intensity of their conditioning exercises to improve their stamina.

Students put together routines and have the option to enter non-sanctioned gymnastics competitions with our Rec Team (extra charges will apply).

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.
We're here to serve you. If you have an idea for an awesome new class or event, or don't see a day/time that works for your schedule, let us know!

NINJA coed, ages 5+
This is a mixed-ability, coed class. We stress and practice the importance of strong, sound basics. Students work parts of skills at stations until they are ready to execute the full skill. Students receive spotting assistance for skills they are ready for. We do not skip steps in the process for the safety reasons and also for the confidence of the athletes. We work with each student at their own pace as there is no timeline for how long it takes to learn a skill. Skills being worked on in class are at the coach's discretion. Each class, students supplement their tumbling stations with strength and conditioning exercises to build up the proper muscles used in the skills being learned.
