Gymnastics Program Session Dates
Boys & girls (ages 3-4 years)
Tumble Tots is a 30-minute movement education class for pre-school aged children that focuses on early gymnastics skills. Classes include warm-ups with basic stretches, locomotor skills, forward rolls, handstands, balance beam skills, swinging on the bars, jumping on the bug board and an introduction to dance. (We ask that parents remain in the hallway or use the facility during class.)
PROGRESSIVE SCHOOL-AGE GYMNASTICS
This nationally accredited program involves skill development specifically designed for each level on all four events. Structured gymnastic routines will be taught for bars, beam and floor. When skills are acquired, the gymnasts will be invited to join Pre-Team. Those on Pre-Team will learn routines and skills that are competed by the YMCA of the Twin Tiers Flames Gymnastics Team. The team holds try-outs in May of each year. Progress to any level will be determined by the Y gymnastics staff and head coach.
- ROLLERS – Beginners – This level includes basic skills on floor, balance beam, uneven bars and springboard.
- SWINGERS – Intermediate – This level builds upon skills learned in level 1 on the floor, balance beam, uneven bars and introduces the vault.
- PRE-TEAM – Invitation only.
