(Ages 5 and Up)
Our Recreational Class Program is intended for boys and girls ages 5 and up. Children participate in a 1-hour class once per week. Our recreational classes incorporate a 15-minute warm-up followed by 45 minutes of instructional training on all of the Olympic equipment. At MGC, we have designed our own progressive system modeled after the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Program. Our classes range from beginner to advanced levels, which allows for the accommodation, happiness, and success of every gymnast.
All of our recreational classes follow the MGC Lesson Plan System. This carefully designed system serves as a guide to ensure that all gymnasts are learning the most advanced gymnastics techniques in a fun, safe environment. The lessons emphasize basic fundamentals such as body alignment, posture, correct hand and foot placement, as well as proper skill progression. Our state-of-the-art facilities include trampolines, foam safety landing pit, a 40X40 square foot spring floor, and all Olympic equipment.
(Please call the gym of your choice to schedule a 5-minute evaluation to determine the proper level for your child)
The Girls Recreational Program consists of 5 levels ranging from beginner through advanced. Throughout each 13-week session, each gymnast is evaluated for progress by their instructor. Using our on-going enrollment policy, gymnasts are able to progress to the next class level at their own pace (a new session does not have to begin for class advancement). Women’s Olympic apparatus and equipment utilized within the girl’s program are: vault, uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise, tumble track, trampoline, and our safety foam-filled landing pit. Strength and flexibility conditioning are incorporated through the use of circuit training.
The Boys Recreational Program focuses on working all of the Men’s Olympic events. These include: floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars, and high bar. Boys also utilize the tumble track, trampoline, and our safety foam-filled landing pit to enhance new skill development and spatial awareness.
