Pre-recreational Gymnastics

The Pre-recreational class is a very exciting time as it is the first time the child is away from their parents in a class setting. This hour long, co-ed class is broken into 4 rotations every week. These rotations include floor, trampoline, a technique station and the event of the week. The event of the week rotates between Vault, Bars and the Balance Beam. These fun classes teach the vital skills of balance, coordination, body awareness, and movement education. While also building strength, flexibility, and self-esteem.

Our Pre-Rec classes focus on important life skills children need to learn like following direction, taking turns, and forming positive relationships with their peers and instructors. Our Pre-Rec coaches are trained to interact in a fun and exciting way so that your child has a positive class experience! We use equipment and circuits geared to teach and develop skills necessary to advance in gymnastics! Your little gymnast will get introduced to all the aspects of gymnastics including bars, beam, floor, trampoline, and vault in a fun and creative way! Morning and evening classes are available to fit your schedule.

Clothing Attire

What is High 5's?

This class is an invitational program for kids who are ready to be challenged more. In High 5's, your gymnast will learn to work independently on their basic skills. These skills build the foundation needed to work on more advanced skills. To enroll in a High 5's class, your gymnast must be recommended for the class by a director or head coach.
