Beginner Cangym Badges 1-4

A 1.5 hour fun and energetic program incorporating most of the standard gymnastics events (vault, bars, beam, floor, trampoline)

The program is designed as a progressive gymnastics program, with a pass/fail associated with each level. Each level incorporates different progressions that must be mastered before moving on to the next, more difficult, level of gymnastics. Report cards will be handed out the last week of classes, at which time it will be indicated if your child has to repeat the level, or move on to the next.

For each class, parents can expect a 10-minute warm up activity, a 10-minute stretching activity, and then groups will separate into ages and/or levels depending on the number of athletes in each class time. Each group will use different pieces of equipment as per the coach’s daily lesson plan, and groups will incorporate free-play in the foam pit into their class time. A cool-down activity is done the last 5-10 minutes of class.

Please keep in mind that many of the more difficult levels can take several sessions to complete.
