Parent-Tot Open Play Gymnastics
This program is designed to function as an open play gymnastics time. Each participant will be accompanied by their parent while moving at their own pace from desired station to desired station. This is a great introductory program for students not yet ready for an instructor-led class on their own! Our gymnastics instructors will be on site if needed to answer questions and to ensure safety. This is not a class led by our gymnastics coaches. Instructor-led classes begin at the junior gym level.  First time participants receive a t-shirt.

A PARENT MUST ACCOMPANY EACH CHILD TO EACH CLASS SESSION AND PARTICIPANTS SHOULD WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHING.

Ninjanastics

Does your little one use your couch like a jungle gym or your swing set like an obstacle course? If so, and you’re looking for a safe and creative way to burn off some of that extra energy, then this is definitely the class for them. Ninjanastics is a class that mixes gymnastics, tumbling, parkour and the thrill of American Ninja Warrior into a fun program while combining tumbling, climbing, getting through obstacles, and even some flips to increase body awareness, coordination, agility and motor skill levels. After training all session, Ninjas will have their final obstacle course to complete and beat their best time. Every session has a different obstacle course challenge with new goals to reach. Choose between Lil’ Ninjas (4-6 yr), Ninja Warriors (6-8 yr) or Ninja Masters (8-12 yr).
