Peewees

This class is reserved for our very advanced preschool gymnasts.

In this class our main focus is technique. They will be introduced to some larger sized equipment and harder gymnastics skills. Children may stay in this class for several sessions or most of the year depending on timing. When to move into a Recreational Gymnastics class is often unclear, but, when that time comes, a Green Owls class is usually the best choice. As some children reach first grade, starting to think about the competition team may be appropriate.

**This is an invitation only class**

Age Group: 4 – 5 year olds
Class Length: 1 hour, twice a week
Cost: $120 per 8 week session
