Wings has carefully designed superior levels of classes that suit every child's ability, coordination, and balance.
Check out our youth classes below.
Classes are designed for children walking through four years of age. Our coaches use gymnastic equipment, toys, and music in teaching body awareness, motor function and find their own flexibility through gymnastics
Designed for children ages 5 and up. Girls are taught gymnastics skills that increase strength and flexibility. Your child can experience the satisfaction that comes from mastering a new skill. Our Recreational classes create a safe, positive, and fun-loving environment for children of all ages. These classes can elevate your child into a competitive team but do not necessarily need to.
The difference in classes is age ranges.
Classes are designed for children who have mastered basic skills on all events. More advanced skills are taught during these longer class periods.
As a more disciplined class, gymnasts will begin learning and perfecting more advanced skills such as back walkovers, round offs, back handsprings, back hip circles and so much more.
Ninja classes are very fast paced. Children learn combinations of flips, rolls, jump, and kicks in addition to strength and agility. Our Ninjas will start each day working on their Ninja training and then continue to advance on our boy’s skills in all six men’s Olympic events, Pommel Horse, Rings, Floor, Vault, Beam, and Bars. Each week our Ninjas will work on two of those events to advance skills necessary for the Ninja program and all other gymnastics classes.
The Tumbling classes are designed for the student that peeked interest is concentrating only on the floor exercises. Cartwheels, round offs and backhand springs will be taught in the Tumble class.
Gymnastics is a motor-sensory sport and is excellent for children with special needs. Instruction not only targets the child’s physical development but also encourages growth in the areas of turn-taking, social skills, and group cooperation. Parents are encouraged to contact Wings to share a bit about their child’s individual needs and determine which class would be most appropriate. While some students are equipped to do well with our mainstream classes, other require more supportive classes that have a reduced student to instructor ratio.
Wings provides every opportunity for your child to soar and has a scholarship program in place where up to five kids are granted a yearly tuition to Wings Gymnastics Academy.
