Recreational Gymnastics

Our Recreational classes cater to both beginner and intermediate level gymnasts. No prior gymnastics experience is required. Gymnastics instruction will be given on the four Olympic events: floor exercise, balance beam, uneven bars, and vault. Gymnasts will be grouped according to age and ability.

Safety and fun are a priority.

Gymnasts will learn rolls, cartwheels, handstands, round-offs and some may progress to front and back handsprings and tucks. There will be an introduction to the use of dance in gymnastics. Pullovers, casts, swinging activities will be taught on bars. On beam, balance activities along with walking forwards, sideways and backwards, jumping, turns and some beginner tumbling skills will be introduced. On vault, gymnasts will learn running, hurdles, jumping and landing, rolling, tight body falls and some may progress to beginner handspring vaults.

Classes are 1 hour and begin with stretching and a warm up.
