Recreational Programs (Regular Season)

The Recreational stream is offered to those who want to experience the FUN of gymnastics.
The main focus is to introduce girls and women to this wonderful and graceful sport through weekly classes over three 10-12 week sessions. You can register for one session or for the whole year!

All classes incorporate a small introduction to ballet, warm-up, stretching and light acrobatics. Each week we focus on a different apparatus (ball, hoop, rope, ribbon, and scarves) and teach the gymnasts the basic foundations of manipulation (throwing, rolling, and skipping) as well as gymnastics-specific skills and tricks.

Our recreational gymnasts perform at two shows - the Winter Show and the Year End show - with unique choreographies, mastering the skills they have learned throughout the session.
Classes are either 45min, 60min or 70min per week, and are divided based on the age of gymnasts. We focus on the Active Start 4 Life program as well as Long-Term Athlete Development.

Each session has a special highlight:
  • Fall Session - "Bring A Friend Week" Oct 7-12 & the Winter Show on Dec. 7
  • Winter Session - "Bring A Parent Week" Feb 3-8 & PRISM Report Cards & Pins
  • Spring Session - "Bring A Parent Week" May 4-9 & the Year End Show on June 13
