Recreation Lessons
Children must be 5 years old by the start of the session (exception of two class times which allow independent 4-year-old children). Classes follow progression guidelines developed by USA Gymnastics. Emphasis is on individual skill development in tumbling, floor, balance beam, vault, and bars. Class stations are designed to allow for a successful progression of skills regardless of ability level. Parents will be allowed to watch the second and final class (in person or via zoom TBD). Beginner Everyone enters at the beginner level. The basics of gymnastics are taught at this stage. Gymnasts who are new to the program but have some gymnastics experience may call to be tested. Advanced Beginner Gymnasts enter after they master a forward roll to sit, backward roll down an incline, cartwheel over a block, donkey kick, and round-a-bout cartwheel. Intermediate (USAG Pre-Level 1) Gymnasts enter after they have mastered a forward roll to stand, backward roll to their feet, straight arm bridge, cartwheel, and 3/4 handstand. Pre-Team (USAG Level 1) Gymnasts enter after they have mastered a vertical handstand, round-off, standing backbend, arch-up kick-over down incline, walk-up pullover mount on bars, and one pull-up with their chin passing above the bar. Introductory Competitive Teams (See Team Level) To be eligible for the Xcel Bronze Team, gymnasts must be able to do a cartwheel, round-off, vertical handstand, backward-roll to push-up, and walk-up pullover mount on bars.
