Our Gym Juniors class expands on the specific gymnastics skills learned in Gym Kids. Students gain self-confidence as they swing unassisted on the bars, learn new skills on the balance beam, learn and recall jumping sequences on the trampoline and independently perform forward rolls on the incline/decline mats. Sport and ball skills are taught every session to promote key components of physical confidence, like hand-eye coordination and agility. Concepts that are central to the structure of each class, such as taking turns and following simple directions, are emphasized, as they play an important role in the development of a child’s social and emotional skills. This is an adult participation class, and a parent or caregiver must be present with each participating child.
