- All classes follow a curriculum and a predetermined rotation schedule
- Gymnasts learn skills on the vault, bars, balance beam and the floor exercise
- Class assessments
- Each class has a set list of skills that must be mastered in order to progress to the next level
- At the end of each school aged session, coaches assess students’ abilities using a skill checklist to determine the best fitting class for the next session
- During assessments, coaches will quickly evaluate the set list of skills for each level
- Even though all gymnasts experience the exact same learning, no two gymnasts progress at the same rate. One gymnast may complete a level in one session whereas another gymnast might take much longer. Gymnastics is an individual sport and we believe it is important to encourage each gymnast to focus on themselves and always try their best!
- We want what is best for your gymnast. If your gymnast has prior gymnastics experience, please contact us to schedule a free assessment to ensure appropriate class placement. Otherwise, please register your child for Introduction to gymnastics.
- In our experience, we find it very helpful to create a clear line between the lobby, where students wait for class with their grown-ups, and the gym, where students take class. This tends to make it easier for students who are feeling shy or uncomfortable to overcome their uneasiness. With this in mind, we ask that parents stay out of the gym during all parts of class (including the first few minutes of free-time). This way, all students will know that the gym is a place where they go without their grown-ups. While this may be difficult at first, we believe that it is the best way to give students the chance to succeed in a drop-off environment.
- Feel free to wait in the lobby
- Please ask an instructor to view the lesson plans on the Ipad!
