Girls Recreational Program

If your gymnast has never done gymnastics before and is at least in kindergarten we recommend they start in a Young beginner Girls class or a Beginner Girls class, based on the grade they are in. 

Young Beginner Girls

Kindergarten-1st Grade | 50 Minute Class

This class is for young girls, grades Kindergarten-1st, wishing to increase flexibility, coordination, balance and strength.  Basic skills are taught on floor such as handstands, cartwheels, forward rolls, backward rolls, and the first steps to roundoffs and backbends.  On beam they learn balance when learning walks, jumps, balance skills, mounts, and dismounts.  Bars improve upper body strength when they rotate through bar stations learning pull overs, leg cuts, back hip circles, and undershoots.  Vault improves coordination by learning to run and jump on the springboard and landing with two feet, once learning this they can move on to forward rolls and handstand fall flats onto the mats.  Gymnasts will also learn basic trampoline skills, as well as build strength when climbing the rope.  

Beginner Girls
