Gymnastics

The primary objective of the recreational program is to provide your child with a strong foundation in beginning levels that she or he will be able to build upon in future levels. Each level has specific goals and these are designed for each child’s skill level both physically and mentally. Gymnastics helps develop coordination, balance, flexibility, strength, self-confidence and discipline which helps provide a strong foundation for all sports and academics.
