PRESCHOOL GYMNASTICS CLASSES
Toddler Gymnastics/Preschool Gymnastics
Child development experts have found that active children develop both physically and mentally faster than children who are less active. AMP Athletics' preschool gymnastics program is a great launching pad for any child to begin to develop a lifelong love for health and physical fitness. Our preschool gymnastics classes focus on balance, body awareness, flexibility, and strength, all of which will help any child excel. In addition, our preschool gymnastics classes provide children with tools to help their social and emotional development.

PARENT & TOT (AGES 18 MONTHS-3) Under the instruction of a coach, with the supervision of an adult, children will use preschool-size equipment to learn basic motor movement and gymnastics skills. Some of the gymnastics equipment used in class are the bars, beam, floor, trampoline, rope, and much more. All skills will be presented in a fun and age-appropriate manner, and in a safe environment. Basic gymnastics/motor skills taught in this class include running, skipping, jumping, swinging, gymnastic body positions, log rolls, forward and backward rolls, tables, and much more. These skills will be useful not only in gymnastics and cheerleading but also for proper development in their everyday life. Children will also be taught basic social skills, such as listening, following instructions, and sharing, as well as incorporating fun and learning into our activities (colors, shapes, animals, etc.). These classes provide a great opportunity for a parent and child to bond and participate in skills and fun activities together.
MIGHTY ME (AGES 3-4) This class will challenge your child to continue to grow socially and physically. The emphasis of this class will be to learn more advanced skills on preschool-sized equipment, such as the bars, beam, floor, vault, and trampoline. Cardio, balance, and strength work will be introduced using various equipment. Skills taught in this class include forward rolls, backward rolls, gymnastic body positions, donkey kicks, cartwheels, various swings on bars, bridge ups, and much more!
BIG SHOTS (AGES 4-6) This is a 1-hour gymnastics fundamentals class. Students will also learn basic dance and gymnastics terminology. This class is great for active kids because they will be performing many dynamic and active movements throughout the class. Along with the gymnastics, students will also have to practice good social skills like listening, cooperation, patience, and sharing.
RISING STARS (AGES 3-5) This class is a 1 1/2 hour class that will build upon the skills learned in Big Shots. Students in this class will move at a faster pace, and participate at a higher level and expectation. Students will continue to learn the skills taught in Big Shots but will focus on better technique and skill understanding. This will result in the students having more strength, which is crucial for advancing through skill development. Athletes will gain improved body awareness and control while in this preschool gymnastics class, which helps them not only in gymnastics but in many fine motor activities they will participate in outside of class. Students in this class must be potty-trained.
