Fall Programs - More to Come Soon!
, Ages 3-13, $50
Throughout the duration of the Fall program, children will be taught to confidently explore the world of gymnastics by cooperating with one another and following directions. Gymnastics helps develop motor skills and coordination, as well as basic social skills, such as following directions and taking turns. Lessons learned throughout the program will provide the
children with the skills necessary to excel in other sports, social settings, and the classroom. Classes will split into groups that are taught by the different instructors, and there will be four rotations at bars, vault, beam, and floor.  Please be aware that this class will take place on Wednesday evenings October 1, 2014 - October 29, 2014, and that times and age groups have been adjusted slightly.  Ages 3-4 will participate from 6:30-7:15pm; Ages 5-7 will participate from 7:20-8:05pm; Ages 8-13 will participate from 8:10-8:55pm.  All classes will be held at the Orange County High School gymnasium.
