Gymnastics Classes for Beginners
Rebounders' fully structured recreational gymnastics classes are based on a progression learning
system, emphasizing safety and success while having fun. Your child will be guided through step by step skill progressions and specific drills/exercises, providing the opportunity to effectively achieve and refine gymnastics skill, while progressing from beginner to advanced levels. Students will be working on all Olympic events/equipment: Floor Exercise, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Vault. Further, they will use Trampolines, Foam Pits, Spring Floors and a large variety of small specialized equipment. Our objectives for your child are to learn proper gymnastics skills safely, and increase strength, flexibility, coordination, and fitness levels. Our goal for your child is to become a hard working, self-confident and healthy individual.
Please note that our number one priority is the safe practice of gymnastics. While these skills are fun and challenging, they are harder than they appear and therefore only practiced after proficiency has been demonstrated during progressions. Regular and consistent attendance is the best way for your child to experience the self confidence that comes with success of completing these and many other skills.
Girls Recreational Classes are offered for three age groups:
Junior Girls: ages 5 to 7 years
Girls Gymnastics: ages 8 to 11 years
Girls Teen Gymnastics: ages 12 to 17 years
GIRLS RECREATIONAL GYMNASTICS CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
Beginners: A safe and fun introduction to rolling, bouncing, twisting and all around movement awaits every child that enters our gym! From warming up their muscles to going upside down around the uneven bars, they will experience it all! We focus first on knowledge of the equipment and their comfort level with each event they visit. After introduction to vault, uneven parallel bars, balance beam, floor exercise and trampoline (oh yes, there are trampolines!), they will begin developing body awareness along with fundamental and foundational skills that apply not only to gymnastics, but all athletics! Every athlete progresses at different rates and times; for that very reason, there is never any pressure to attain certain skills, advance to another level or try and keep pace with any other participants in their class. We embrace individuality and celebrate success at all levels!
Our Beginner Classes include three progressional Levels: Jumpers, Rollers, and Bounders.

Intermediate: The learning never stops! This class is designed to continue to build on the foundation that was laid during Beginner Gymnastics. While the basics are always reviewed and applied, it is now time to challenge what they’ve learned, refine their skills and develop more advanced techniques of execution! We will focus some more attention on how well the skills are executed and celebrate the improved form and consistency in skill growth. Their understanding of terminology, body shaping and conditioning will increase as they face new drills for skill maturity. In an ever evolving sport, they will be exposed to more practice time, new stretches, skills and coaching styles!
Our Intermediate Classes include two progressional Levels: Swingers and Flippers.
Advanced: Continued education - as their skills have developed, strength has increased, focus has lengthened and awareness has peaked, they approach some of the most complex and intricate skills in recreational gymnastics! It’s not just about skills, however… conditioning and flexibility play a huge role as the difficulty level has been amplified exponentially! The fun is now found in the weekly challenges and the thirst to finally land that flip, do that tumbling pass without being spotted or do a full 180° split! This class offers strength, intensified skill development and perfection, more gym time and more equipment exposure all adding up to an ideal class for a girl wanting to be known as a gymnast.
Our Advanced Classes include two progressional Levels: Kippers and Twisters.
Intermediate and Advanced classes are reserved for girls with previous recreational gymnastics experience.
