The type of class for your child is determined by age, experience and ability.  Class mobility is based upon individual progressions.  Staff members will place your child into the class that is best suited.   A brief description of each class level is listed below.

Gymnastics is the foundation for all sports.  Your child will learn coordination, flexibility, balance, self-confidence and self-discipline.  Gymnastics creates strong minds an strong bodies, all of which will enable your child to do well in other sports/activities.

All students will be allowed 2 make-up classes.  Please call the gym or see one of the coaching staff to schedule your make-up class.

Class ratio will be maintained at 8 students to 1 coach.
