FUN AND CHALLENGING CLASSES

Introduce your child to the sport of gymnastics and all that it has to offer at Gymnastics Etc. Our goal is to provide every child with a safe and fun learning experience where they can succeed to the best of their abilities.

PRESCHOOL GYMNASTICS

Our Pre-school gymnastics program is focused on fun, energized exploration for our little ones. These are the times that our little tikes are learning all about their surroundings, their personal abilities and their socialization skills. We work hard on creating an environment for our kids to learn and explore in a safe, padded and fun-filled world. Our focus is not only for each child’s physical development but we also really focus on learning to follow instructions, follow a circuit, interact with other young children and adults different from mom and dad. It is our hope that we can help guide our gym kids through success in learning their locomotor movements as well as helping them grasp the social lessons needed to prepare for school.

PARENT TOT:      

Ages: walking to 3 yrs old   -   Class Duration: 45 minutes.   Our parent tot class is a world of discovery for both our parents and children. Children at this age need an active environment to challenge them physically and mentally. This class is designed to enhance this learning experience and comfort zone by having mom and/or dad along for the ride.

SUPER TOT:

Girls Recreational Gymnastics

Age*: 5 years and up  -  Our Girls recreational gymnastics program is for children 5 years old and up and ranges from very beginning basic gymnastics at Level 1 up through advanced recreational skills at Level 3. Our girls rec. program is split up into 3 Main Levels of gymnastics and each of these levels are split up into 3 more sub levels (i.e. Level 1 Bronze, Level 1 Silver, Level 1 Gold – and the same for Level 2 and Level 3). We have broken our program into 3 Main Levels with 3 Sub-levels putting more focus on skill progressions and individual successes, each child will achieve small progression markers which will add together for movement to the next sub/main level in their training. Our staff we will be conducting individual evaluations on all our gym kids each 12 weeks. These evaluations will provide feedback on where your child's progress in their current level, if they are ready for the next level, if not quite ready they will receive feedback skills they have and need for the next level. Please keep in mind that each 12 weeks we will need to take some class time to evaluate each child and complete our evaluations but we feel that these will be very helpful for both parents and children in their continued progress. Class Duration: 1 hr.(Level 1), 1hr. 15min.(Level 2), 1hr. 30min.(Level 3). Levels 2 and 3 have enrollment criteria.
