BEGINNER CLASSES

Beginner Gymnastics Classes Ages 6-13 years

Once a week for 1 hour per session. The classes are designed to help each child develop all the basic gymnastics skills.  Each child is encouraged to progress through the skills and drills at their own pace.  Each level takes about 1 year to master but individual children may take longer or shorter depending on their ability as well as the amount of time they practice! When they have mastered all the skills they are ready to move up to the next level.  A teacher will inform you when your child is ready to move up. Children are graded on our Grading Award System enabling them to “pass” into the next level.

In addition to the FUNDAMENTAL tumbling skills, children also improve their flexibility, strength, speed, agility and fitness.

INTERMEDIATE CLASSES

Intermediate Gymnastics Classes Ages 6-13 years.

Twice a week – 2 x One Hour Sessions Children come twice per week for a hour at a time (by choice).The skills become more complex, combining various fundamentals and children usually take part in Red or Bronze level. These levels require more flexibility, strength and commitment to progress. When they have mastered the skills they are ready to move up to the next level. Children are graded on our Grading Award System enabling them to “pass” into the next level.

Students usually stay in a level anywhere from a year to two years- but of course this can vary depending on ability and amount of practice!

In addition to the INTERMEDIATE tumbling skills, children also improve their flexibility, strength, speed, agility and fitness.
