SCHOOL AGE GYMNASTICS
The Rowland/Ballard gymnastics program introduces children to the fundamental concepts, skills, movement, and body shapes. We do this by carefully designing our training curriculum and by using innovative teaching methods. Each level is designed to help our students learn and improve new gymnastics skills. As students move into more advanced skills; coaches will emphasize strength, flexibility, continued balance development, and new skill introduction. Our primary goal is to use gymnastics instruction and advancement as a way to help develop healthy, happy, and confident children.
G1 / B1 – This entry level of gymnastics introduces new students to fundamental gymnastics skills, concepts, and gymnastics body shapes. This level allows our students to enjoy the sport of gymnastics in an amazing environment. Our awesome coaches make each class exciting and fun.
G2 / B2 / G3 - This intermediate/advance level is a continuation of Level 1 elements into more advanced gymnastics skills. At this level our coaches will emphasize strength, flexibility, continued balance development, and new skill introduction. The purpose for each class is to help our athletes learn new things and improve their technique on the skills they already can perform.
