Teen Class - LTAD 8
This is an individually paced with no pass or fail, creating an environment that focuses on safety, positivity and education. Additionally, the classes are developed around the interests of the participants and are available for Artistic gymnastics or Trampoline and Tumbling. These programs give your teen a chance to enjoy gymnastics and see what they can do.
In this program, the gymnasts explore the Artistic gymnastics equipment which includes the bars, beams, vaults, pommel horse and floor. Our coaches will work with each participant to help them build a strong foundation of the basic gymnastics movements and skills. The classes change to suit the interests of the group and focus will be given to the areas that the class finds the most fun.
Gymnastics is also a fun-filled, non-contact activity through which children can develop self-confidence, experience a wide variety of challenges and opportunity for social interaction.
Gymnastics helps develop physical literacy in children. The development of these physical tools are needed to take part in activity and sport, both for healthy life-long enjoyment and for sporting success. You’re never too young to gain something positive from the sport of gymnastics.
