Best Boys is designed for boys ages 5 and older and consists of 3 levels of achievement with a 6:1 student to teacher ratio in Level 1. In this 60 minute class, skills range from basic gymnastics positions to more advanced gymnastics skills. Elementary school ages are a perfect time to begin your child’s gymnastics career and athletic development, but discipline, focus, and social interaction are the extra benefits gained from this valuable instruction. Many of our boys continue their gymnastics training while concurrently branching out to other sports including football, baseball, basketball, soccer, swimming, and track. These gymnasts typically excel at their other sports endeavors.
Students will learn the fundamentals on the six primary gymnastics apparatus: floor exercise, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars, and high bar. As safety is our utmost concern, all beginner classes will utilize the lowest rings and bars to ensure proper and safe technique before graduating to more advanced apparatus and skills in the higher levels. Trampolines are utilized to promote air and body awareness as well as core strength and muscle coordination.
Our sequencing philosophy is paramount in developing memorization and recall skills at an early age. Not only will your child benefit from an athletic standpoint, but the brain development will carry over into the school classroom.
Each class ends with a fun, athletic game to reinforce that play every day is needed to develop healthy children!
Our program curriculum is designed from over 75 years of gymnastics experience and research and is standardized and documented for all our instructors. You can track your son’s progress as he moves through the program’s levels with weekly parent record reports sent home at the end of each class.
