Kid’s Gymnastics

*THANKS FOR A GREAT WINTER! WE’LL SEE YOU BACK IN THE FALL!*

Kid’s Gymnastics (WILL RESUME IN FALL 2014)

Our goal is to provide a fun and positive atmosphere where children can learn gymnastics. The self-confidence and discipline the children will develop through active participation will help them to lead healthier lifestyles both physically and mentally.

We offer basic gymnastics instruction in a fun and safe environment with experienced instructors. We believe that starting fitness at a young age promotes a positive self image, increases body awareness and builds strength.

Which class is right for my child?

We always want the child to be in the group of their closest peers because childeren naturally develop at different rates. Age is a good starting point, but if we feel your child will be better off in another group, we will let you know quickly. If you’d like to try a class out before signing your child up as a monthly student, feel free to drop-in any class (one-time, $20.)

Kittens (2-3 years)

This Parent-Child class will help promote early development and socialization through fun, gymnastics based activities such as running, jumping and climbing. The instructor will focus on your child’s development in the areas of body awareness, balance and general movement. The development of social skills is also emphasized, as your child will practice following directions, taking turns and interacting with other children.

Overall, this class is a great introduction to the gymnastics environment as we will use the balance beam, mats and the bars to keep your child moving. At this age, we encourage the parents to take part as physical support and encouragement every step of the way.

  • Class is limited to 10 participants.
  • New classes begin on the first Saturday of every month.
