2020 SESSION START DATES:
Preschool and Parent/Tot classes are for children ages 4 and under. These classes are designed to introduce your child to organized activities, taking turns, basic gymnastics, and much more!
Bronze Class is for kids 5 and older that have had little or no gymnastics experience. This class includes the basics of gymnastics including balance, coordination, focus and strength. It will give the participant the opportunity to experience all aspects of gymnastics at the beginner level.
Silver Class is for students who have tested out of the Bronze Level and are ready to work on more advanced gymnastics skills. They will continue to work on balance, strength and coordination while advancing their skills.
Gold Class is for the students who have tested out of Bronze and Silver and are ready to start pushing themselves toward the competitive program. This class is also considered the Pre-Team class. It is the highest level of recreation classes.
Once a student achieves the next level, they will receive a certificate and a star pin representing the level they have passed. These pins can be attached to backpacks, gym bags or kept to display at home. They show the accomplishment of passing a recreation level!
Showcases are scheduled during the year so that you and family members can see the progress your young gymnast is making!
Team gymnasts have decided that gymnastics will be their primary focus. Because of their years of commitment and dedication, and more than anything else, the number of hours they spend training, they generally tend to rise to higher levels and learn harder skills. Team gymnasts will compete in 5-6 meets through the CARA program. Additional commitments such as fundraising, travel, and expenses are associated with competing and are not included in the membership fee. Commitment contact for the Twisters competition Team and an additional team fee are due in January. Additional information will be provided with your team invitation.
SIDELINE (REC) CHEER
Your cheerleader will learn chants, jumps, motions, stunts, and the art of LEADING A CROWD! The rec cheer team will perform at various local events and seasonal youth sports events. Please see the website for session dates and registration information. Sideline is for grades K-5th.
Our teams emphasize tumbling, stunting, arm motion technique, and jumps. The competitive team will prepare for a competition each session (plus other local events as scheduled). Uniform and event fees are additional. Please call for additional information and enrollment requirements. Levels are determined through a try-out procedure.
Choose from Ballet, Poms, or Hip-Hop dance. Or register for them all! Classes will teach the proper technique and body alignment to build strength, flexibility, and help protect from injury. There will be a recital at the end of the session to showcase their talents! Appropriate dance shoes are required and additional costume fees will apply. No deadline for Dance Bugs – register anytime.
