About Our Gymnastics Program

All of our gymnastics classes are non-competitive, co-ed, and separated by age and skill level. Upon joining The Children’s Gym, a student is automatically placed into the introductory level class for their age. When you feel your child is ready for a higher level class, they must pass an assessment in order to advance. Assessments ensure that our students advance between levels in a way that is most appropriate for their mental and physical abilities, and most beneficial to their continuing progress.

Gymnastics is an individual sport. At The Children’s Gym, we believe that children need to be allowed to achieve at a pace that is comfortable for them. We believe it’s important to encourage children to focus on themselves, give their all, and be proud of their accomplishments. No two students will progress at the same rate, even if they experience the exact same training. It is not uncommon for a student to spend two seasons at a particular class level before advancing. However, that time span may be shorter if they are taking two or more gymnastics classes per week.

Class Levels:

When a student begins to feel like they may be ready to move up, that is a particularly valuable time for them. They will most likely grow their confidence and ability very quickly. All class time at The Children’s Gym is extremely valuable, regardless of class level, as coaches challenge and encourage each child individually. Each class includes a couple minutes at the end for the coach to dismiss children back to their parents and check in about the day’s lesson.

Prices listed below refer to signing up for one class; once-a-week attendance. Enrolling in more than one class per week is not required, but is highly encouraged, as it will help gymnasts get stronger and improve their skills more quickly. Remember, repetition is key to developing gymnastics skills. If you sign up for more than one class per week, you get 10% off the tuition of your second class.

Class Schedule:

During the regular season (following the school year), The Children’s Gym offers co-ed gymnastics classes Monday through Saturday mornings, afternoons and evenings. There are multiple classes available during each hour. All gymnastics classes are divided by age and skill level so that your child receives the most appropriate instruction. Scroll down this page to view our different class levels and when they take place.

Summer Classes:

During the summer, the class schedule is different to account for summer camps. Classes are offered for all age groups and skill level. Instead of being enrolled and billed monthly, students enroll in a 5-week session and pay for it. Make up classes are not offered during summer classes. Summer Sessions are pre-paid in full at the time of sign up. Membership ($40 for a single child or $50 for a family) is required for all summer class students. Tuition is non-refundable, transferable or eligible for credits.
