Our Recreation Program
All children are special. It is our goal to teach every child and provide them with the highest quality instruction regardless of their ability. We hope to help them gain confidence, self-esteem and gymnastics skills. The success of our program will be measured by this growth in the children whose lives we touch.
Our recreational gymnastics program is a developmental program. Through principles of fun fitness and fundamentals, with full use of gymnastic equipment, music, games etc. we develop gymnastics skills. The principles of movement and all sport: swing, spring, statics, landings, locomotion and rotations are all incorporated into the program.
