For children ages 5 and Older
From bars to beam and floor to vault, our step-by-step approach ensures every child is challenged in a safe and positive environment. Not only will children learn the fundamental skills of gymnastics, but they will also build flexibility, strength and confidence
This is the first of the progressive classes for students who are new to the sport of gymnastics or recently entered kindergarten. This class will help children learn the basics of gymnastics and lay down a foundation upon which to build.
This class will also include a variety of stretching and strength-building activities. A section of this class is available for students ages 8 - 17 who are new to gymnastics (called Beginner 8+).
Swingers, the second progressive class, is for students who have basic experience with gymnastics. This class complements and rounds out the developmental skills needed to give children a sound background in gymnastics.
Skills include forward and backward rolls, the beginnings of handstands and cartwheels, walks, kicks, jumps on various beam heights and supports, and swings on bars.
Kippers is designed to enhance skill development. Skills start focusing on attaining upside down vertical (handstands, cartwheels, etc.) and introducing circling on bars. In order to pass outs of this level, gymnasts must be able to consistently perform cartwheels, handstands, and pullovers.
After a gymnast has achieved all the Flyers skills, they will have the option of joining the competitive Level 2 team or continuing with the progressive program in the Flippers class. Skills in this level build upon those in Kippers, looking to enhance the power, height, and accuracy of each skill.
This class is aimed at students who have passed the Flippers skill level and want to continue working on mastering and advancing their skills, but do not want to move on to a competitive team. Students will continue to work on handsprings, advanced vaults, kips on bars, and cartwheels and handstands on beam. The class will introduce salto skills (no hands), and jumping to high bar.

Examples include: handstands and cartwheels with assistance, a variety of rolls and jumps on floor, assisted pull overs and swings on bars, basic techniques on rings and mushroom, and proper vaulting basics. This class will also include a variety of stretching and strength-building activities.
