Gymnastics is a great "foundation" sport – the skills learned in gymnastics carry over to other activities from cheerleading to football. No matter what age or skill level, Gym South has a class for your child. If you have a child younger than 6, don't forget to check out our Preschool Program. Ask about our sibling discounts and convenient class times!
The recreational gymnastics program at Gym South is geared toward gymnasts of all ages and skill levels. Our 1-hour "Star" classes are divided into 3 levels -Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Beginners of all ages (age 6 years and up) participate in our Bronze classes to learn fundamental skills like forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, and handstands. They also learn other basic skills on other events including the uneven bars, balance beam, vault (girls) and high bar, pommel horse, parallel bars, vault, and rings (boys).
The gymnasts will progress to Silver then Gold as they master the progression of skills at each level. We also have an Olympic program for more advanced gymnasts and an invitation-only Developmental program for preschool-aged gymnasts.
Placement in classes is decided by skill level during a free trial class. Simply call Gym South and we will make an appointment for you in one of our regularly scheduled trial classes! Our trial classes give you a chance to see if you like the gym and allow us to place you in the class that will be most beneficial to your gymnastics. Call today!
Bronze Star classes are our beginning level gymnastics classes. They are one hour long and teach proper warm up techniques, conditioning exercises, and basic skills. Gymnasts will learn skills on all of the Olympic events including Vault, Uneven Bars, Beam, and Floor for women, and Floor, Pommel Horse, Rings, Parallel Bars and Horizontal Bar for men. We encourage the young gymnasts involved in the preschool program to switch from the preschool program to a Bronze Star class at age 5 for boys and age 6 for girls.
