Philosophy - The objective of this program is to provide an affordable quality gymnastics experience for daycare and school organizations.
Structure - Although it is recommended that students take part in our 14-level Medallion Award Program Burgundy through Gold award system, not all groups may want to attend the required ten classes. Groups who do not wish to take part in the medallion program will be instructed according to the same curriculum as those who do, but without the awards. A 10 to 1 student/teacher ratio provides a lower cost without sacrificing the quality of instruction - care providers are encouraged to assist our instructors. Instruction is provided on all Olympic gymnastics events plus trampoline.
Accomplishment - Students are assessed and a ceremony held at the end of the 10 classes awards each child a medallion from our Medallion Program.
Medallions (if this option is chosen). The actual medallion is Gold in colour while the colour of the sticker represents progress being made. Each time a student receives an award (Step 1, Step 2, or Mastered) he/she has the opportunity to either:
A) Advance within a color/level or
B) Move on to the next color/level.
Within each level there are an average of 36 gymnastics skills that are distributed among the floor exercise, rings,vault, parallel and uneven bars, high bar, trampoline, pommel horse, and balance beam. These skills progress in their complexity as students master each successive medallion. Note: The school retains records on the progress of each student to assist in class placement in future sessions.
Program Prerequisites - No gymnastics experience required!
