Progressive Classes

Our progressive levels allow for gymnasts to learn skills in a logical progression, from basic skills that require no previous gymnastics experience, all the way up to advanced skills that prepare a gymnast for pre-team and competitive gymnastics.  The apparatus include: Vault, Bars, Beam, Floor, and Tumble Trak

Level evaluations are performed a few weeks before the end of a session to determine proper class placement for the next session.  If you are new to our program and unsure of your child’s level, please contact us.  We may recommend a quick, free evaluation to determine the best level placement for your child if your child has previous gymnastics experience.
