Preschool Classes for up to age 4
Skills taught include forward and backward rolls, "Tiger Tails" which teach handstands, as well as basics on bars, balance beam, and vault. Skills will be taught in the appropriate USAG skill progressions, but with engaging games and stories that tap into the wonder and imagination of the very young child.
Parents and Children Walking Unassisted - Age 3
Parent and me classes are a fun parent and child bonding experience. Parents will learn to safely spot their child through various gymnastics skills while their child is learning important life skills through fun. This class is for children who are walking up to 3 years old. Parents are actively participating in the class.
Kindergym Age 3 and Kindergym Age 4
*Parents of 4 year olds-please note that these students may participate in Kindergym 4 or Gym Bugs.
Kindergym classes are co-ed, 45-minute classes, taught through the use of fun and challenging obstacle courses. Specific gymnastics skills are incorporated into strategically structured courses, which challenge the child to learn, and still keep the young preschool child moving in sync with the class. Kindergym focuses on the development of gross motor skills, playground readiness, social skills, and gymnastics skills, as well as developing proprioceptive and vestibular systems.
Gym Bugs Ages 4
This co-ed, 50-minute class is for 4 year-old students who have completed a year of Kindergym. It is a "Level 2" Kindergym class, for students who have become familiar with the foundations of Preschool gymnastics, and focuses on building strength and precision in skills. It is not an advanced class.
Gymnastics skills will be taught with learning stations or "rotations" such as what is used in our Recreational classes, in addition to learning through obstacle courses.
Due to the pandemic we have adjusted our protocols to keep all of us safe. Please see Covid 19 page for specific details. We are requiring the students to stay socially distant throughout their entire class. Because of this we are not offering any independent 3 year old KinderGym classes. We are encouraging parents with 3 year olds to enroll in our Parent and Me class so they can assist in keeping the kids socially distant.
