KinderGym Vine Swingers (KG4)- LTAD 1
Vine Swingers is a 60 minute un-parented, advanced program for children 4 to 6 years of age. This class expands on the gymnastic fundamentals (swings, springs, rotations, locomotions, statics and landings) learned in Puddle Jumpers (KG1),Leaf Hoppers (KG2), Log Leapers (KG3) and introduces more advanced skills. This is the highest level of Ortona’s WOW programs.
The program utilizes our larger main gym in addition to the preschool gym, to offer the young athletes a chance to try more advanced techniques and develop their skills even further. Two gyms means twice the fun. The program builds upon the basic gymnastics movements (swings, springs, rotations, locomotions, statics and landings) learned at the lower WOW program levels, and begins to introduce more advanced skills to the young gymnasts. Additionally, the program combines dance, music and play to create a fun and educational program.
Children must complete Log Leapers (KG3) prior to registering in this program. The young athletes receive 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 4
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.
