School Age

Since this summer started a little different then most we have had to “switch up” our normal routine.  This summer our typical classes will be offered as recurring Quick Camps for School age kids.  Quick camps will run for 1 hour and 15 minutes and are offered throughout the week.  Please check the link below for our current class times and available spots in each class.  Quick camps will meet on the same day at the same time each week once you chose a spot to sign up in.  Quick camps are the same price as our school schedule classes even with the bonus 15 minutes.

Recreational Gymnastics

Foothills Gymnastics Recreational Gymnastics Level 3-5

The core objective of our Recreational Program is to create an environment where each child can feel successful and learn positive self worth regardless of skill level.

Gymnastics acts simultaneously as a wonderful tool to aid in increasing self esteem and as an exciting and enjoyable form of exercise. In addition, gymnastics will help your child develop skills and all aspects of athletic ability including speed, agility, strength, balance, power and flexibility. Therefore, gymnastics is a great introduction and compliment to all other sports. The love for physical exercise will allow your child to grow and continue a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives.

The Foothills Recreational Gymnastics Program begins at the age of 5 for both boys and girls. These classes meet once a week for an hour and are designed to be challenging yet fun. Classes include training in flexibility and strength as well as progression of skills. This program outlines definite objectives for each level on all of the different apparatus. Girls’ events include floor exercise, vault, uneven bars, balance beam and tumble track/trampoline.Your child’s progress will be tracked through skill charts which are maintained by the instructor at each level on each event. Our gymnastics skills are taken directly from the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Program and are designed to build the basic foundations necessary to learn upper level advanced skills.

Through our system of levels, we assure our customers that we can provide a program that will meet every child’s need regardless of whether they view gymnastics as a recreational activity or as a potentially competitive sport.

Tumbling

Foothills Gymnastics USAG

We offer tumbling classes for both boys and girls ages six and up. Our tumbling program will allow your child to learn new skills on the floor and trampoline at an increased rate of development through skill progression. These sequences will permit the individual to build the fundamental groundwork necessary to learn more advanced tumbling techniques. Students will focus their efforts on tumbling drills and skills via three primary pieces of equipment including our tumble strips, tumble track and in-ground trampoline. In order to accommodate every student , we offer three levels of tumbling including beginner, intermediate and advanced.

Beginner classes will concentrate on learning and strengthening basic tumbling skills such as rolls, cartwheels, handstands, round offs, and bridges. The primary focus of the intermediate level will be to continue improving fundamental skills and training more difficult tricks such as walkovers and front and back handsprings. Students must master a round off back handspring before being promoted to the advanced class. Once in the advanced group, students may learn more difficult skills such as aerials, tucks, layouts and twisting layouts.

All of our instructors are well trained and educated in various spotting and teaching techniques. We instruct through a series of progressions which not only allows for the building of solid fundamentals, but also ensures the safety of your child.

Tumbling enhances all aspects of athletic ability including coordination, strength, flexibility, and agility. The love for physical exercise will allow your child to grow and continue a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives. Whether your son or daughter views tumbling as a fun recreational activity or as a supplemental tool to aid in dance, cheerleading, martial arts or any other sport, we assure our customers that we can meet their needs.
