Classes include instruction on all Olympic events and are divided by age and ability. The program is structured so that gymnasts are rewarded as they progress through 10 achievement levels. As a gymnast masters each level they will receive a specific colored achievement ribbon for that level. Upon mastery of each level of the program they are invited to move to the next level of the program.
Our Beginner Program is designed to introduce basic gymnastic skill to young children who have little to no gymnastics experience and those still learning the basic skills. Mastery of these basic skills is necessary to move to the Intermediate level program.

You may register your child for class at any time as long as there is space available in that class. Tuition will be prorated based on the classes remaining in the month. All registration is done online. Your student will be scheduled to begin class as soon as you complete the registration process.
