Cruces Gymnastics Academy offers a comprehensive recreational gymnastics program for both boys and girls. SAFETY and FUN are the foundation of our program, and we keep those two aspects first and foremost in every session! We offer separate boys' and girls' classes that teach progressive skills based on the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic events for each. We also offer a combined beginner's class that allows boys and girls to explore ALL the events, and a Tumbling class that focuses on developing Floor Tumbling skills.
Our girls' and boys' curriculum encourages gymnasts to develop skills and strength at their own pace; girls begin working on the Uneven Bars, Floor, Balance Beam and Vault, while boys begin working on Floor, Rings, High Bar, Parallel Bars, Pommel and Vault. Gymnasts have the opportunity to be evaluated every three months to gauge how their skills are developing, and if desired, can progress to a more advanced class when they have attained an appropriate evaluation score.
Our mixed girls' and boys' Beginner level curriculum allows a broader exploration of all gymnastics events for all kids, although your gymnast can still work to pass evaluation and progress to more advanced classes. Our Tumbling class is great for girls or boys, covering all the basics of running and standing tumbling, such as handstands, cartwheels, round-offs and back handsprings, and incorporating more advanced skills as appropriate.
Most importantly - ALL our classes are designed to keep your kids engaged and active... and having FUN!
Ready to join us for a class? Here's what to wear:
- Leotards are preferred for all girls, and are required for Pre-Team level gymnasts.
- If a leotard is not worn, clothing should be comfortable and easy to move in, but not baggy. Leggings, athletic shorts or fitted athletic shirts work well.
- No jeans are allowed.
- Zippers, buttons and snaps are not allowed.
- Jewelry may not be worn.
- Hair must be secured away from the face.
Our attire guidelines exist to ensure the safety of all gymnasts and coaches. Children who do not follow the attire guidelines may be asked to sit out of practice.
