Our Beginner Girls class is a one hour-long introductory class. Beginner, ages 6-8 years old, provides a fun and safe introduction to gymnastics. This class will begin focusing on the 4 Olympic events: vault, bars, beam and floor.
Your child’s coach will take the girls through floor and bars rotations each week. Every other week they’ll get to do balance beam, and tumble trak. At the end of each class the kids will enjoy a game or pit time!
Our 3 different beginner classes are divided by age. Coaches put greater focus on the names of positions and skills in this class. They will learn how and why certain positions make a skill easier to learn. We expect them to recall the names of skills, which ones they enjoy and which ones they would like to improve upon.
The girls spend about 3 minutes on each skill station before switching to the next station. At this age they are ready to start spending more time on one skill and make conscious adjustments. We encourage the kids to demonstrate stations for their peers. This is an opportunity for them to practice leadership, take instruction and perform in front of others.
Beginner Girls focus on skills such as the straddle roll, bridge, cartwheel, handstand, headstand and straight jump. The girls will work on their freeze!!! finishing position, as well as how to mount and dismount the high beam safely. When the girls have mastered the Beginner level skills they will be recommended for Intermediate Girls.
