Training Commitment: 4 - 12 hrs/week
This program is aimed for athletes 5 to 8 years old. This program is in place for talented young athletes who exhibit above average physical potential, focus, drive for continuous improvement, and strong listening skills. Children are normally selected from various programs within the club.
The goal of the program is to provide structured gymnastics with each child learning concepts of fitness. By doing this we develop the child’s strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, concentration, body awareness and agility. This prepares the gymnast’s body to learn and acquire the basic fundamental skills and shapes on each event. Every child develops at their own pace over the season, thus allowing them to reach their own goals in a positive environment. It is very important to us that we also help to develop their enthusiasm for the sport, as well as, their confidence and self esteem while at the same time helping them to develop good listening skills, work habits, and attentiveness.
Training Commitment: 8 - 12 hrs/week
