Women's Team Trainees
This twice a week 55 minute class is open for students 5-9 years old that have tested out of Class 1 and wish to train for competitive gymnastics. This class begins with a coordination-based warm up and followed by a advanced stretch. This class refines what was taught in Class 1 and begins the training for more advanced skills. The major difference from the Class 2 Recreational Program is the emphasis on form, strength, and the assumption that Team is the end goal.
On Floor they will refine skills like Handstands, Forward Rolls, Backward Rolls, and Cartwheels. They will begin shaping for Back Handsprings and train flexibility skills like Bridge Kickovers. Bars will continue to refine the Pullover, begin the training of Back Hip Circles, and begin the basics of Glides. Beam will further challenge with Jumps & Turns and a little bit of tumbling! Vault will start the journey of teaching them how to soar. Basic Dive Rolls, Punch to Handstands and more start here.
