The Gymnastics Program at Peak Athletics has been designed to train athletes in improving their physical abilities as well as help teach important life lessons. From our Preschool and Recreational classes, to our Developmental PreTeams, to our growing Trampoline and Tumble program and our highly competitive Junior Olympic and Xcel Teams, Peak Gymnastics offers a variety of options all designed to help young athletes pursue their individual goals and achieve their athletic dreams.
Gymnastics for Toddlers
For our youngest gymnasts, we offer a Parent and Tot class. This class is perfect for active kids (ages 18 months to 3 years) who enjoy spending fun time with other kids and quality time with a parent! This class will use a lot of Peak’s smaller sized gymnastics equipment like: bars, beam, floor, trampolines and the rope. There will be some basic motor movement taught in this class like running, skipping and jumping. These skills are not only imperative to Gymnastics, but also useful in everyday life. Children enrolled in this class will also learn basic gymnastics technique and skills such as log rolls, forward rolls, donkey kicks, walking on a balance beam and hanging/swinging on a bar, all while learning and having fun in this Gymnastics class-setting.
Gymnastics for Preschoolers
For preschool-aged boys and girls, we have Twinkling Stars, Rising Stars and Gym Jammers. These classes allow kids to expand their knowledge of gymnastics, while getting a good workout and having fun in a safe environment. Gymnastics fundamental skills will introduced in these classes so students can begin to build their skill base that will be utilized throughout their Gymnastics careers.
Twinkling Stars is a gymnastics class for boys and girls ages 3-4. These classes introduce fundamental Gymnastics skills as well as focus on social and cognitive developmental skills, such as counting, listening to and following instructions, taking turns and sharing.
Rising Stars is for children aged 4-5. The primary focus of this class is to reinforce what the athletes learned in their past preschool Gymnastic classes and continue to improve their technique, form and understanding of the fundamentals of Gymnastics. This class will continue to help build body awareness, strength and control. Gym Jammers is a Gymnastics/Dance combo class for boys and girls (ages 3-5). Children in Gym Jammers are introduced to the basic skills and technique of both sports.
Recreational Gymnastics Classes for Kids
Our Recreational (rec) Gymnastics classes are for kids who are at least six years old and currently in first grade or higher (five years old and in kindergarten for our Kindergarten Girls Gymnastics class). These gymnastics classes teach kids the proper technique for their basic Gymnastics skills. In Gymnastics, it is very important to have a strong technical foundation, especially if your child has aspirations of advancing to higher levels. These classes will make sure each child finds their balance between progression and maintaining their past skills with correct technique and form. We offer a wide variety of levels for our Rec Classes, starting with Kindergarten, Beginning, Intermediate all the way through Advanced, where everything from a Forward Roll and Handstand to a Back Handspring and Kip will be taught.
Trampoline & Tumble
Trampoline and Tumble (T&T) is one of the newest programs at Peak Athletics. There are four competitive events in Tramp and Tumble Competitions: Trampoline, Synchronized Trampoline, Power Tumbling and Double-Mini. Peak offers classes for all ages and skill levels, from a Pre-K and Beginning to Advanced classes as well as our competitive T&T Program. We are very excited for this program to continue to grow and thrive, as we get new talent in our classes every session.
Little Ninja Tumbling Classes
Is your child constantly climbing on the furniture, jumping on the bed, swinging on the railings? Do they want to be able to overcome obstacle courses and swing through the air while doing cool tricks? Then Peak’s Ninja Tumble classes are the perfect activity for your little Ninja! This class will challenge your child to continue to grow socially and physically. The emphasis of this class will be on balance/coordination, strength, flexibility, cardio, hanging movements and tumbling skills. In addition, students in these classes will work towards speed and accuracy through the circuits, and learning how to persevere and overcome challenges and obstacle courses presented each week.
Competitive Gymnastics Teams
Our USA Gymnastics Competitive teams are specific to the athlete’s individual skill level and pace. We offer Women’s Gymnastics teams that follow USA Gymnastics (United States Association of Gymnastics), the world-wide governing body of all official gymnastics competitions. Our teams are placed by skill level and require an individual evaluation by one of our USA Gymnastics Coaches. Here at Peak, we offer Levels 3, 4 and 5 along with our Optionals team.
Our Xcel program is the perfect fit for athletes that enjoy gymnastics, but are interested in participating in other extracurricular activities at the same time. The Xcel program is the same as our USA Gymnastics program in that there are the same experienced coaches with the teams, however it provides families with less of a time commitment than the USA Gymnastics program would.
Our PreTeam Gymnastics is for athletes who strive to be on one of our competitive teams in the future, but might not be quite there yet. This program focuses on the basic skills and techniques that a competitive team coach would expect an athlete to have mastered by the time they entered their program. Athletes must be invited to participate in our PreTeam Gymnastics Program.
