RECREATIONAL PROGRAMS

Why recreational gymnastics?

Gymnastics’ roots and, the roots of almost every other sport, originate from several fundamental movement patterns. Every skill in gymnastics comes from one or more of these movement patterns:

  • Landings

  • Stationary positions

  • Locomotion

  • Rotations

  • Swings

  • Springs

  • Object manipulation

When a child learns these skills early in life, these movement patterns:

  • Enhance sport participation and enjoyment

  • Contribute to a healthy, active lifestyle

  • Provide basic physical and motor capabilities that we can draw on for a lifetime

  • Allow those with the interest and ability to achieve success at any step of the competitive or recreational ladder in gymnastics

CO-ED Rec - (5-10 years)
 

We offer 1 hour co-ed recreational classes for ages 5-10, that expand upon the physical literacy developed in our Active Start classes. The focus of our recreational classes is building confidence in the Fundamental Movement Patterns of gymnastics through Fun and Fitness. Fun activities and games are used to further develop physical abilities such as basic strength, postural control, core strength and flexibility, as well as agility, balance and coordination. Gymnasts are introduced to basic skills on all apparatus.

Please note that all of our program ages run on the school year. Your child must be in full time kindergarten (or full time early kindergarten) to attend the evening recreational classes. 5 year old children in preschool must attend the day time classes.

CO-ED Adv Rec (9-12 years)

 

We offer a 2 hour coed recreational class for age 9-12 years.  This class allows for more time in the gym and more advanced skill development. While the focus is still on having fun through learning, participants will continue to develop, extend and refine agility, balance, coordination and speed. Body symmetry (strength and flexibility) must be developed in order to accomplish sound basic skills which will lead to more advanced skills as the gymnast progresses.

Please note that all of our programs run on the school year. Your child must be in at least grade 4 to attend this class.
