FOCUSING ON THE FUNDAMENTALS OF GYMNASTICS
Our Girls Gymnastics students, kindergarten and above, are placed into class based on skill and age. Athletes practice on the four Olympic apparatus: floor exercise, balance beam, uneven bars, and vault. These 55 minute classes are perfect for girls who want to try gymnastics for the first time or the more advanced athletes who are looking to take their skills to the next level. Stick Its progressive curriculum system (Star Achievement) is taught on a continuum, allowing students to move at their own pace, advancing on the events on which they are ready. Continuous evaluations are low stress and allow the coaches to track the athletes’ progress. Advancement to the next class is achieved when all 3 ribbons are earned and a trophy is presented to the athlete.
Stretching can help prevent injuries, aches and pains, and balance problems. It also improves posture.
Gymnastics uses almost exclusively body weight exercises to build upper body, lower body, and core strength.
Children who participate in physical activity like gymnastics are likely to have better self-esteem and self-efficacy.
