Children get to be in these instructional classes based on their individual skill.
The underlying philosophy behind our Boys Gymnastics Program is to encourage children to develop confidence, become aware of capabilities and strive to their potential. Our mission is to build happy, healthy, confident children while creating avenues of success through movement and gymnastics. This program is based on skill level, not age level. However, the child must be going into the 1st grade, or higher, as of the summer session to qualify for class. Our Boys Program is available, regardless of past experience. Classes help to build coordination, self confidence and strength, particularly upper body strength. The sport also increases flexibility and kinesthetic awareness. We have exciting classes for every child at every ability level. Gymnastics is one of the most challenging sports in the world, but it is also a stepping stone to great success in other sports. Many great athletes in several other sports owe their success to a foundation built in gymnastics. It is a nine week session, with classes once a week.
Our instructors are highly energetic and well-trained individuals, actively involved in the growing world of gymnastics. They bring valuable knowledge to this program, many with their own personal backgrounds as gymnasts. They continually seek updated resources and participate in training clinics and conferences to increase their knowledge as gymnastic professionals. Our progressive instructors range in age from high school through adult, with years of experience working with children. Each of our progressive instructors bring their own personality, knowledge and excellence that will make your child’s class a positive one.
We provided progressions and skills for Beginner gymnasts through Level 3. We have a very specific curriculum using the latest USA Gymnastics guidelines and materials. Our curriculum includes floor exercise, balance beam, uneven bars, vault and basic dance. We review our curriculum each year and make changes according to USA Gymnastics revisions, updates, etc.
We welcome parents to stay and watch classes. However due to safety precautions we ask that you remain in the lobby or designated areas. Many of our progressive students are dropped off. Please be sure to ask your child for any handouts so that you are informed about our upcoming events. Some of our events may include performances, bring a friend, parent participation and education weeks, parents night out, day camps, clinics and open gym.
Currently Team Central Gymnastic Academy does not have a Boys Competitive Team. We do work with our sister gym Olympiad -Manchester to provide a place where boys who have excelled in gymnastics can move on to a competitive team that competes a few times a year in Missouri & Illinois. Boys are welcome to stay in the program for instructional purposes and do not have to compete unless they want to.
