GEM Star Classes
Gymnastics is a multi-faceted, challenging sport that develops physical strength, flexibility, speed, agility and composure. The benefits of gymnastics however, go far beyond the sport itself. Gymnastics also teaches children about individual responsibility and courage. Gymnastics offers children opportunities to learn about setting goals, working diligently to achieve those goals, and recognizing one's own success as well as the success of others. At G-Force, we believe that helping children grow in a positive manner is about more than the sport itself. Throughout the course of our gymnastics classes, we reinforce essential life skills such as discipline, determination, perseverance, and respect. These skills will resonate with students long after they retire from the sport of gymnastics.
Our GEM Star Classes have been developed for non-competitive boy and girl gymnasts age 6 and up. All of these classes are progressive and build a foundation for the next level of gymnastics. All of our classes follow the USA Gymnastics guidelines for development and training. All classes are taught by our dedicated and enthusiastic coaches who will work with each child hands on and challenge them to set and strive for individual goals. Our coaches set high standards for discipline and skill development and will challenge students to reach their full potential.
All GEM Star classes are 1 hour and 15 minutes long and gymnasts can sign up for one, two or three classes per week.
