This class is our gym's introduction to the special needs program. We offer two groups split by age, 4 - 6 and 7 – 9 years old. Class placement is open for discussion as we try to base groups on the size, ability, and needs of the gymnasts.
Offered in a less crowded location during quieter business hours, the class is geared towards optimized adaption to a structured gym setting. To support the child's needs, a parent, guardian, or aide is required in order to best support each gymnast. Our special needs classes are limited to a 4 students to a coach ratio to guarantee individual attention for each student.
The class builds a wide range of motor skills as well as social skills, boosting students’ confidence with each success. Student - teacher communication is key as students gain skills while having fun.
Balance, jumps, running coordination, hanging on bars, basic inversions, climbing, and much more.
Example class structure:
This class is our program’s transition to the bigger gym. With more equipment available to accommodate older children and a larger amount of classes simultaneously being held around the class, listening requirements are brought to the forefront. A parent or guardian is welcome to aide to best support the needs of each student. Four gymnasts maximum in a class to ensure each gymnast receives individual attention.
This class fosters listening and communication skills with a teacher. Gymnasts gain the ability to take the class independently without an aide while practicing sharing and taking turns with others.
Various trampoline bounces and drops, body positions, basic vaulting skills, basic bars, rings, parallel bars, support swings and travels, basic tumbling, and stretches on the gym floor.
Example class structure:
The Level 1 for Special Needs class is a stepping stone into a Level 2 for boys and girls that need special accommodations. The class explores many different approaches to basic gymnastic skills and is taught at a lower 4 to 1 student to coach ratio to ensure every gymnast has the tools to learn and achieve success.
The focus of this class is building skills, learning how to push past difficult obstacles, and understanding the rewards of hard work and dedication. Gymnasts will learn to maintain focus utilizing gymnast and coach communication with minimal guardian aide.
Basic tumbling, progression towards a pullover on bar, hand stand flat back, cartwheel, and squat-on on vault.
