The Galaxy (Our Instructional Program)
(Ages 6 and up)
Our instructional program is designed for children ages 6 and up. We have developed a well-rounded gymnastics program that focuses on safely teaching the foundational skills of gymnastics and then building on them. Our priorities after safety are for classes to continue to be fun and educational. Our teachers are well-trained and know how to teach to each child’s learning style which optimizes success. However, we don’t merely measure success by what skill a child has. Success is also measured by a child maturing, becoming a better listener, better able to follow directions, perseverance, compassion, good sportsmanship, conquering fears and the list goes on and on. Gymnastics is the tool we use to help the children that come through our doors be better people and athletes who value themselves and others.
Gymnasts will begin in a Sparklers class. This 6 week beginner gymnastics course prepares gymnasts for the T.L. class.
A single T.L. class will consist of 2 levels: Twinklers and Lunar Loopers. These two levels stress the basics of gymnastics with an emphasis on correct technique.
After a child has successfully mastered the S.T.L. skills, she would have earned a spot in an S.P.I.R.I.T.S. class. At the S.P.I.R.I.T.S level the skills become more difficult. The children will have additional work on strength and flexibility in order to help them master these, more challenging, skills.
