Classes for Registration 2021 - updated July 29
Gymnastics classes are the heart of Gold Star, taught by coaches who are enthusiastic, dedicated to student advancement, and committed to safety. We offer classes for both recreational gymnasts and competitive athletes, for young children just learning to walk through teens and adults discovering the joy of turning upside down.
Our gymnastics classes are taught with a structured curriculum, a passion for the sport, and care of the children present in all our Gold Star programs. Student’s progress is documented during Star Weeks, five times a year. Star Week is designed to provide both feedback and motivation as students move through the program. Preschool students are given a progress report and a ribbon indicating their level. Recreational gymnasts are given a poster, and then earn sticker stars to place next to the skills they have mastered.
Preschool classes are constructed around authentic gymnastics skills presented in an upbeat and engaging fashion. We work to balance repetition and novelty to help children feel confident while staying excited about coming to gymnastics each week.
Walking to 3 years old | 45 minute classes
The class is structured for toddlers (with an adult’s assistance), and focuses on both gross motor and socialization skills. Students start lessons with a warm-up using manipulative props, and end with a game incorporating music and dancing. In between are exercises on the gymnastics equipment: bars, beams, trampolines, springboards, and a multitude of mats. Children learn to jump, balance, and roll while practicing taking turns and following a circuit. Call for a free trial.
3 years old – Kindergarten | 45 minute classes
In our MiniStars program children participate independently. Skills are practiced on obstacle courses comprised of traditional gymnastics equipment, and presented through games and imagery. Students start class with a warm-up using manipulative props, and end with a game incorporating music and dancing. The curriculum consists of three levels, progressing from basic gross motor movements to more advanced gymnastics techniques. Call for a free trial.
These classes are committed to safety, teaching traditional gymnastics skills, all while maintaining the excitement of rolling and cartwheeling through space. School-age students are separated by gender and ability (except for our Teen and Adult classes which are co-ed and multi-level).
