Specialty Gymnastic Programs Calgary

Specialty Programs

Our Specialty programs were specifically designed to introduce other gymnastic disciplines, focus the majority of attention on favourite activities around the gym and enhance other athletic passions and pursuits. We hope an option below is the perfect fit for you!

Pre-Teen Gym (Ages 8-11)

Age: 8-11 Years
Class Length: 1.5 Hours
Pre-Req: None
Instructor/Participant Ratio: 1:8

 

We often receive phone calls and emails that go something like this:
“My child is 8 years old and really wants to try gymnastics. Where should they start?” or “Do you have a beginner program for my 9 year old that isn’t with a group of 6 year olds?”

Why yes, yes we do! And it’s called Pre-Teen Gym! This program is specifically designed for those between the ages of 8-11 who want to launch their gymnastics experience!

In this co-ed structured “beginner” gymnastics class, participants will get a good handle on the gymnastics basics and work towards foundational skills introduced in our Levels 1-3 Gym360 program including swings, supports, rolls, cartwheels and handstands. Students will work on all of the apparatus including floor, vault, bars, rings, balance beam, tumble track and trampoline.

Although there is no formal testing in this program, coaches will assess and provide guidance if a student would like to switch to a Gym360 or other specialty programming track.

Our goal is to create a fun and welcoming environment for everyone to do gymnastics – let the adventure begin!

Teen Gym (Ages 12+)

Age: 12-16
Class Length: 1.5 Hours
Pre-Req: No gymnastic experience required.
Instructor/Participant Ratio: 1:10

 

We cannot stress enough the importance of getting off the computer and being active. We believe that the experiences we have in our youth will form our habits for life. Therefore, finding fun fitness options in our teen years is essential to proper development and growth.

In this co-ed class, participants will climb the rope, swing on the rings, bounce on the trampoline, fly into the foam pit, tumble down the tumble track and face a variety of fitness based challenges. While having fun and moving their bodies, teens will develop strength, improve body control, increase flexibility and learn some awesome new skills. This is a great class to experience with friends and a positive place to make new ones!

This is the best option for those whose focus is not on passing Gym360 levels, but rather on being active and learning some cool new gymnastics skills.
