After taking a Beginner Girls class your child’s coach may recommend Intermediate Girls. Intermediate Girls, ages 6-8 years is an hour long class that will continue 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 have a chance to enjoy a game or pit time!
Coaches will put greater focus on learning about 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.
Intermediate Girls 6-8 yrs 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 be a leader, take instruction and perform in front of others.
Intermediate Girls focus on skills such as the pike roll, bridge walk and kickover, round-off, timber fall, passé and scoop walk, tuck jump, and pull over. The girls will continue work on their freeze!!! finishing position. When Intermediate Girls turn 7 years old and have mastered the Intermediate level skills they will be recommended for Advanced Girls.
Twice a year we will look to the Intermediate classes for blossoming talent to grow our Pre-Team and Level 2 competitive groups. If you have any questions about Intermediate Girls or the competitive program, don’t hesitate to ask.
