Preschool

The most important education you can provide young children!
Gross Motor Skills -> Fine Motor skills -> Cognitive Thought

Gymnastics is a fantastic activity for Gross Motor Skill development. Kids learn to run, jump, turn upside down in a safe environment using soft landing mats and age appropriate equipment.

Active participation is central to the development of positive attitudes toward learning and the most affective way to learn.  We encourage active participation to teach children that they can succeed, that learning is FUN, and that they should always get up and try again. 

Lawrence Gymnastics & Athletics offers an exciting and challenging separate preschool area filled with colorful, child-sized equipment for your child to play and learn! Each week we introduce a new, fun theme that will enable self-expression through the motion of gymnastics!  Every class ends with pit and trampoline time, and a stamp.

K-12 Gymnastics

K-12 Girls

Girls Recreational Gymnastics

Athletes will develop skills on the vault, uneven parallel bars, balance beam, and floor exercise.  All girls recreational classes focus on individual progress with a 1:8 coach to student ratio

Our recreational gymnastics program is designed to introduce children to basic gymnastics positions and skills while developing coordination, strength and flexibility — all in a positive, highly active and fun learning environment. Children don’t like waiting in line, so we use Skill Stations and keep kids students moving and trying skills the majority of class time.

 

Beginners Classes are designed for children with very limited or no experience in gymnastics instruction or have had one semester of a gymnastics class. Your child will have a great time learning how to move gymnastically!

Intermediate Classes build on the basic concepts and skills in beginning classes, and begin introducing more advanced skills on all apparatus. Children also begin connecting multiple skills together, and focusing more on form and how skills are performed. More time is also spent on increasing strength and flexibility.

Advanced Classes continue to introduce gymnasts to more advanced skills and simple routines are taught. Execution of these skills while maintaining good body position is the primary focus. At this level gymnasts are encouraged to participate in local low-keyed performances / competitions.
