Words cannot express the gratitude for the wonderful past 3 years Hunter has had at your gym. Her self confidence, poise, athletic, abilities and love of gymnastics has been cultivated and brought to a great point.
As Hunter’s mom, I couldn’t be more pleased with the skills you taught Hunter. The time and patience you’ve spent on my little one is so appreciated. The countless coaches and hours spent helping Hunter achieve her goals in gymnastics is absolutely wonderful.
Hunter is ready to take all that you’ve taught her and try new things. She was blessed to end her time with gymnastics with a nice performance at States.
I would highly recommend your gym to anyone! You guys are amazing and we will surely keep in tough.
Ms. Elisabeth M. Kadra (Hunter’s Mom)
PRESCHOOL STARS PROGRAM
"Where Our Stars Shine"
ME & MY SHADOW
Ages 18-24 months • 45 minute class weekly Me & My Shadow classes offer age appropriate lessons in creative movement through the use of music, playful games, parachutes, hula hoops, obstacle courses and sealed down gymnastic equipment. The parent assists the child under the supervision of the instructor to learn safe, developmental gymnastic techniques, utilizing pre-school mats and shapes in a mildly structured setting. Our Shadows are introduced to a variety of gross motor skills including throwing, catching, rolling, kicking, swinging as well as balance and flexibility.
TINY STARS 1 Ages 2-3 years • 45 minute class weekly
Children ages 2-3 years can join in the fun with a little help from an adult friend in our Parent/Tot classes. This 45 min class starts with the most basic motor skills, and introduces your child to the structure of a class. An adult friend will need to come and help your little one stay on course!
TINY STARS 2 Ages 3-4 years • 60 minute class weekly
Children 3-5yrs can participate in our Preschool program. These classes work on more advanced motor skills and require the social skills necessary to stay in line, and follow directions. The preschool group will play on the floor, beam, bars, vault, and tumble track. And, of course, we still save a little time at the end for play time in our foam pit!!
Shining Stars Ages 4 - 5 years • 60 minute class weekly
Shining stars is an independent class which uses modified gymnastic equipment. The classes are structured with new lesson plans each week and also include theme weeks to make learning fun. Basic gymnastics is introduced in a fun and playful way with the help of music and games to further the development of self confidence and spatial awareness.
"Probably one of the best decisions I've made for Jordan; we both have made lifelong friends, she has amazing coaches who are like a second family and so encouraging, and her confidence and persistence to master new tricks is unbelievable! Now it's Mackenzie's turn this fall!"
