Blue Balancers (3-4 years)
Our Blue Balancers class is our introductory gymnastics class for children ages 3-4 years old. This class is the first step in having our little gymnast become more independent by having adults watch from our viewing area. Our Blue Balancers program focuses on listening and cooperative skills, motor skill development, strength and coordination. We learn these skills by having fun on the gymnastics equipment, completing obstacle courses that emphasize climbing, hanging, jumping, running, and rolling in a fun and safe environment. This class will be play based and be 45 minutes long.
Purple Performers (4-5 years)
Our Purple Performers class is our second level introductory gymnastics class and designed for children aged 4-5 year olds. Those who are 4 will need to be recommended by an instructor for this class. Recommendation for this class will be based on listening and cooperative skills and the child’s readiness for more skill development. Even though activities in this class will be based on play and having fun, students will focus more on learning the basic gymnastics skills on bars, beam, floor, and vault, as well as strength and flexibility.
Fuchsia Flippers (6-7 years)
Our Fuchsia Flippers class is the first class to introduce the CanGym badge program. It is designed for children 6 or older who are new to gymnastics or who have completed the Blue Balancers/Purple Performers programs. It introduces the proper skills progression for fundamental gymnastics to ensure a safe, energetic, and fun experience. Children in this group should be working on their Burgundy or Red badges. Students will progress at their own pace through a variety of exercises to achieve gymnastics skill, confidence and expertise of their body.
Aqua Aerials (8-12 years)

If students were in this class in Spring 2019, and are still working on their red badge, they will remain in this class. Students will progress at their own pace through a variety of exercises to achieve gymnastics skill, confidence and expertise of their body.
