Boys Recreational (6+ y.o.)
This class follows the standards set by USA Gymnastics (governing body of Gymnastics in the United States).  The class is taught by a qualified instructor; who teaches the basics of Men’s apparatus, including Floor Exercises, High Bar, Parallel bars, Pommel Horse, Rings and vaults.

The class is approximately 60 minutes long and increases as the gymnast progresses.  Rotations include three events (Bars, Floor, and Vault) typically where instructors use demonstrations and guided practice to help students learn new moves. A trampoline or tumble track may also be part of the lesson plan, depending on skill level as well as tumbling and muscle strength building.

Mastery of new skills through comprehension and progression training is a cornerstone of our program.  Through this training, self esteem and endurance is built up.  Students are evaluated at the end of every 5-week rotation to track progression and advancement. Based on the evaluation the student will remediate the class or move on to the next level and/or join the boy’s gymnastics team.
