Young Beginner

Gymnasts will focus on core strength, arm strength, and the coordination necessary to learn headstands, handstands, cartwheels and forward rolls- the fundamental building blocks of almost all gymnastics skills. Balance and coordination will continue to be the focus to improve through repetition of walking, jumping, and kicking, leading into turns and leaps. All athletes will grow at their individual pace with encouragement and positive reinforcement from our professional coaching staff. The athlete will develop fine and gross motor skills, coordination, balance along with developing a certain level of independence.

This class is designed to be a continuation of skills and growth from the previous class. Your athlete will continue to build strength and gain flexibility. Having the strength necessary to do a pull-over allows the gymnast to focus on casting and back hip circles on bars. A renewed and continued emphasis on developing balance and coordination through walking, jumping and turning, allows the student to gain confidence and begin working on levers and handstands. Proper running technique will still be a focus. As your athlete works on basic skills she will also become familiar with gymnastics terminology.

Young Low Intermediate

A gymnast who has progressed to the intermediate level has developed the strength and flexibility needed to learn more advanced skills. The intermediate level introduces the gymnast to the guidelines and requirements set by the United States Gymnastics Association. As the levels progress, the required skills become more demanding. Intermediate gymnasts also have mastered basic skills on many of the events. While the basics are always reviewed and applied, it is now time to challenge what they’ve learned, refine their skills and develop more advanced techniques of execution!
