Recreational Gymnastics Program
Our Girls and Boys Recreational program allows girls & boys, ages 6 years and up, the opportunity to increase their skill set on various gymnastics apparatus — vault, bars, floor, and trampette, with the addition of beam for girls, and pommel, rings and parallels for the boys.
Girls and boys in this program will improve strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, and coordination in a high-energy and fun-filled environment. In addition to athletic development, this program provides a great opportunity for personal and social development, including fostering new friendships. The gymnast is able to maintain a focus on the development of excellence in an environment where athlete safety, health and wellness are our first priority. In their personal pursuit of excellence, each athlete benefits from ongoing personal and physical development that transfers well to their academic life, social development and performance in other athletic programs.
Gymnasts can be selected to move on to one of three pathways which include Cherubs, which is General Gymnastics that is competitive, Recreational, which is non-competitive (45 minutes only) and Angels, which is both Mens and Women's Artistic classes. We look at pre-school gymnasts very early on to see if there is potential for the gymnast to go into future General level competitions. Entry into the General level programs are not for everyone and are by trial only.
Flying Angels Gymnastics Club’s Recreational program focuses on Fun filled sessions:
Recreational classes focuses on improving balance, strength and coordination. Following some stretches and basic body positions, the class will explore different equipment each week. Recreational Gymnastics sessions also include working on proficiency awards using floor and vault, and other soft play apparatus. Gymnasts also get the opportunity to train on additional apparatuses, which for both boys and girls include BEAM, BARS, RINGS, PARALLEL BAR plus TRAMPETTE & TRAMPOLINE. Recreational groups also take part in our gymnastics displays within the club, along with some gymnasts being specially selected for competitions both in-house and local.
