Our developmental girls gymnastics program is designed to develop specific skills on the 4 Olympic apparatus: Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor Exercise. Gymnastics not only assists athletes in excelling in any other sport, but it can also be a competitive sport as well. Our Classes promote discipline, self-confidence, strength, flexibility, coordination, body form, mental toughness, balance, athleticism, and skills in gymnastics in a safe and wholesome environment. We always want to ensure your child is in a class that will teach and challenge them, and also not be too overwhelming so they are set up for success with a strong foundation!
BEGINNER GIRLS GYMNASTICS
Our Beginner Girls classes are the perfect fit for girls wanting to learn the correct form, basic strength and the necessary flexibility to effectively perform all introductory gymnastics skills. After mastering all the skills required for Beginner Girl’s your daughter may be invited to move into our INTERMEDIATE class, followed by our ADVANCED class after additional skills have been mastered. Your child’s coach will let you and our front desk staff know when it’s time for your child to move up to the next level.
Our Beginner Girls Gymnastics classes are 55 minutes long.
INTERMEDIATE GIRLS GYMNASTICS
Our Intermediate Girls Gymnastics classes focus on progressing the skills that were focused on in our Beginner Girls Gymnastics classes. Strength and flexibility will remain a focus in this class, building on the foundation gained from previous classes. Some common skills required to be an Intermediate Gymnastics class include but are not limited to: chin-up pull-over without a spot, back walkover by themself, back handspring with a spot and handstands on beam with a small spot. Your child’s coach will let you and the front desk know when it’s time to move your child up!
Our Intermediate Girls Gymnastics classes are 55 minutes long.
ADVANCED GIRLS GYMNASTICS
Our Advanced Girls Gymnastics classes are offered by invitation only and at our Arrow Staffs discretion. Kids in our advanced classes will need to have several of the following skills without a spot: chin-up pull over, back hip circle, back handspring, round-off back handspring, side handstand dismount, and handstand flat-back vault. As with our Intermediate classes, a student’s work ethic and attitude in class are also determining factors to be able to move to an Advanced class. Advanced classes are a great steppingstone to making the competitive gymnastics team.
