Girls Recreational Gymnastics Classes
Recreational gymnastics is both beneficial and fun for children of all ages. During class, students use all muscle groups while learning skills and having fun. It is a great activity for developing strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, spatial awareness, confidence, and self-esteem – enhancing the ability to perform most other sports. In this day and age when too many children do not get enough exercise, gymnastics is the best activity to provide a total fitness program. Fundamentals of gymnastics will be taught on all four of the Olympic events:
- Uneven Bars
- Balance Beam
- Floor Exercise
Each class begins with a general warm-up and stretching. During class, the children will work on three or more events each week. Emphasis is placed on learning new skills / routines, as well as reinforcing good basic technique. Strong emphasis is placed on body awareness and safety.
