2 .5 – 6 YEAR OLD GYMNASTICS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
This program introduces children to basic gymnastic skills and coordination tasks on various gymnastic equipment. The emphasis of the program is getting children to try new skills, positively reinforcing the attempts. In our program children can have fun while they develop coordination, gymnastic skills, balance and self confidence. The class times are divided by age. Students should register for their current age group. All of the classes are similar in content, but vary in approach and expectations.
Starting at age 2 .5 and including children not yet comfortable with parent separation “My Grown Up & Me” classes will include children of all abilities whose special needs require their grown-ups personal spotting for a safe and successful experience at Gymkhana.
RECREATIONAL CLASS PROGRAM
6-16 years (Levels 1 & 2 beginner and 3-6 intermediate)
These classes include instruction on basic gymnastic skills for a new beginner as well as a continuing student still at the beginner or intermediate level. Children are evaluated and placed into the appropriate age and ability groups within their class times. Students may move from one level to the next by passing skill requirements.
Intermediate level gymnasts will have the opportunity to learn short optional routines and to attend a few informal meets, (added cost per meet)
These classes are for girls and boys interested in tumbling. Students will concentrate on tumbling skills on the floor, trampoline and tumble trak.
POWER TEAM GYM
Power Team Gym is a United States Gymnastics Group/Team program for girls and boys of all ages and ability levels. Gymkhana’s Bethel Park location founded its Power Team Gym program in 2008, and has enjoyed great success. This program differs from that of traditional competitive gymnastics in that the gymnasts participate as a synchronized team, rather than individually.
Power Team Gym competitions include vaulting, mini trampoline, tumbling skill passes, and a dance which contains many body control skills and gymnastics elements.
All of our team members have fun practicing and building skills, as well as competing as a team. We also do several demonstrations and exhibitions at events such as Health & Fitness expos, Wild Things games, and at University of Pittsburgh gymnastics meets!
This program runs the same time as our Fall, Winter, and Spring schedule. We also have a special Power Team Gym class and camp in the summer, for those that would like to build on their skills or to try out the team before the new season begins in the Fall.
We are always looking for boys and girls with a passion for gymnastics to join one of our amazing groups!
