Our preschool program provides a strong foundation in the basic physical movements required to excel in the sport of gymnastics. Children begin to learn the basics of gymnastics in small groups of 6 or less, and are introduced to the gymnastics apparatus in a physically challenging, playful environment which encourages learning, development and fun. Children learn how to deal with the physical, mental, emotional and social aspects of childhood in a stimulating setting. Fun and creative play is nurtured as the fundamentals of motor skill development are stressed during the activities. Our student/teacher ratio remains small ensuring personal attention and safety. This is the perfect athletic complement or alternative to Hot Shots. Learning coordination and balance are key components of the beneficial preschool class.
Gymnastics is a sport for kids who want to build strength, balance, confidence, discipline and self confidence. The strength and balance developed in gymnastics will translate to improved performance in any other sports your child may wish to participate.
