Designed with the developmental stages of our young superstars in mind, this class allows for the parents or guardians to participate, hands-on. The young athletes will develop hand-eye coordination through games and activities, as well as skill development, balance, and strength through basic gymnastics activities.
Parents/guardians are taught and encouraged to learn how to safely spot their children through skills. This class is a perfect way for both athlete and parent to step out of their comfort zone and explore the excitement of being a gymnast.
Each class will start with a warm-up song that will not only get the child moving but also it will help your little superstar develop the all-important skills of listening and following directions. After a brief time of stretching, the class will engage in a fun activity geared towards developing motor skills. Ribbons, scarves, sticks, hula hoops and more; each week will be different from the previous one.
From there the class will begin to work on their balance and strength as they learn basic gymnastics skills via an obstacle course that could incorporate bars, beams, and rings, oh my! And finally, the class will wrap up with working on our jumps on one of the trampoline surfaces, as well as playing in our colorful foam pit.
