Boys’ Class Descriptions

You can arrange for your child to take part in a free trial lesson. Our coaches will determine the training level appropriate for your child based on his capabilities and age. Dress is a T-shirt and athletic shorts or a warmup. Socks or bare feet are the norm.

​Preschool: For both boys and girls, ages 3-4 years old.  Introduction to various movements, events and basic skill development. Emphasis on fun while exercising. Classes last 45 minutes and do not exceed a student:teacher ratio of 5:1.

Levels 1-3: Introductory and pre-team, ages 5-10 years old. Classes focus on gymnastics body-shapes and simple progressions for rolls, cartwheels, swings and basic strength. ​Level 3 learns simple routines as it is our pre-team group.

Level 4: This is the initial level for competing; ages 6+. Gymnasts learn the skills for performing routines on all 6 apparatuses and can compete at the state level. Not all choose to compete.

Levels 5-7: A more serious commitment and opportunity to compete at a regional level (7 states combined). Training primarily consists of pre- and post-workout conditioning, flexibility and skill training for routines.

Levels 8-10 and Junior Development: These upper level gymnasts create their own routines and can compete at a national level. At this point, gymnastics becomes a specialized sport and requires serious dedication, time, and sacrifice. ​
