Preschool Gymnastics is a great way to get started in the world of gymnastics and tumbling.
Kids can start as early as they can walk! Preschool classes lay a foundation that can help with almost any other physical activity. Numerous studies have shown links between learning and physical activity. Getting kids active as soon as possible also helps to promote healthy lifestyles for the rest of their development.
In Preschool Gymnastics, kids are exposed to all four of the events in artistic gymnastics – Vault, Uneven Parallel Bars, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise. All of this occurs on equipment that is size appropriate. Early on kids will work with a parent and then progress to more independent skills with the coach. Classes meet at a variety of times during the week and last 45 to 55 minutes.
As children progress through the different courses, skills become progressively more difficult but also more polished. This reaches its pinnacle with an invitation to join the Peewees. After that, it may be time to think about the competitive team!
