OUR GIRLS GYMNASTICS PROGRAM
The philosophy behind our girl's gymnastics program is to encourage children to develop confidence, become aware of capabilities and strive to their potential. Our mission is to build happy, healthy, confident children while creating avenues of success through movement and gymnastics. We provide progressions, skills, and technique for all levels, beginner to elite. We have a very specific curriculum using the latest USA Gymnastics guidelines and materials. Our curriculum includes floor exercise, balance beam, uneven bars, vault, and basic dance. We review our curriculum each year and make changes according to USA Gymnastics revisions, updates, and latest trends.

Rec Level 2 Girls | Ages 5 & up | Class Duration: 90 minutes

Instructors may also suggest exercises to do at home to continue building physical strength and flexibility that will assist them in the gym. At level 2 gymnasts are given an opportunity to learn routines and compete at NWK Fun meets. Non-competitive gymnasts will also learn the same skill with less focus on the routines.
