Our Twisters class is aimed at children who are 3 yrs. through kindergarden age. A beginner class that is designed to introduce gymnasts to stretching, muscle strength, conditioning, basic gymnastics skills, the safe use of gymnastics equipment, and proper fundaments of gymnastics skill execution.
A child may enter this class 2 weeks prior to their 3rd birthday, be capable of following simple instructions, and be fully potty trained. Twisters are introduced to gymnastics each week during their 55-minute class.
The concept of our program is to develop self-confidence, coordination, strength, and the ability to participate in group activities. We do all this while teaching them to have a good time being physically active. KiDS is one of the best equipped gyms in the Midwest. They tumble, vault, use the balance beams, mini-tramp, uneven bars, single bars, parallel bars, and rings. In addition, we have a trampoline which has been built into the floor, a tumble trac to practice basis jumping skills and gymnastics body positions. Besides being fun, our foam pit is used for simple gymnastics skills and conditioning. A cargo net to aid in climbing skills and a fun slide to come down. Under our School-Year Gymnastics schedule students also look forward to Parent Participation Days, party days and our Annual Open House in May.
Adults may view class through our viewing windows in the lobby. Once your child is comfortable in our gym situation, you may feel free to leave the facility and return after class to pick him/her up. If you do choose to leave the facility, please inform your child to wait with his or her teacher until you return. There is a sign-out sheet located at the front desk for parents to leave an emergency phone number. Please be aware that the windows will be covered on special occasions under our School-Year Gymnastics schedule, i.e., skill checking and Open House practices. So that our students are not distracted during these special classes, parents will not be permitted to enter the gym to view classes.
