Shining Stars (5 – 10 yrs)

Once your daughter reaches kindergarten she is eligible to enroll in this gymnastics level. We allow boys to enroll in this program as well, however we do not have boys equipment.

Skills taught include cartwheels, handstands and rolls as well as basics on bars, beam, and vault. Girls are organized into classes according to both age and ability. As a student in this program, your daughter will benefit from increased physical activity and improve in areas such as strength, flexibility and coordination. Our skill development curriculum is progressive and the skills will be worked on all 4 Olympic Gymnastic events (Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam & Floor Exercise) as well as Trampoline.
