KinderGym Log Leapers (KG3)- LTAD 1
Log Leapers is a structured 60-minutes program for children 4 and 5 years of age. The program builds upon the skills taught in Leaf Hoppers (KG2) and further develops each child’s ability and knowledge of the basic gymnastics foundations (swings, springs, rotations, locomotions, statics and landings). We recommend that children 4 years of age should complete Leaf Hoppers (KG2) prior to enrolling in Log Leapers.
The majority of the classes will take place in our incredible, colourful, kid-friendly KinderGym. This unique environment offers children the chance to learn, grow and have fun on a wide array of kid-sized equipment including a mini rock climbing wall, slides and tunnels. Our larger, main gym will also be utilized, offering the young athletes a chance to further develop their skills.
Children participate in artistic gymnastics, by exploring the bars, beam and similar apparatuses. By participating in gymnastics circuits and educational games, the young athletes develop their minds, bodies and learn healthy lifestyle choices.
Each child receives a report card at the end of each session and a ribbon upon completion of the level to reward all their hard work.
Children must be potty trained to participate.
Leapah’s World of Wonderment KinderGym 3
Gymnastics is an ideal activity for preschoolers. It is an excellent physical way to develop gross motor skills, spatial awareness, coordination, strength, power, flexibility, musical awareness and creativity. 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.
