Fun & Fit Gymnastics
The Fun & Fit Gymnastics Program is a nationally recognized teaching system that is very popular with kids and parents, and is being used by gyms all around the country. The kids love getting the stars, certificates, and recognition, while the parents see how the program not only teaches gymnastics, but also increases self-confidence and self-esteem giving their children valuable goal setting skills.
All Kindergarten Gym and School Age Gymnastics students will receive a poster to take home and put on their wall. The poster contains skills that are appropriate for the child's ability level, and match a curriculum card that the instructors have on each child. There are separate curriculum levels for children enrolled in Kindergym (5yrs-6yrs)and Progressive Boys / Girls ( School Age gymnastics 6yrs. and Up).
On check off days, your child needs to know what the skill is and be able to demonstrate the skill 3 times in order to be checked off. The following week they will receive stars to put on their posters for all the skills they have mastered. Each child is challenged and progresses at their own pace. The Fun and Fit program let's you know what we are teaching your children and how they are progressing. Each level they finish, your child will receive a certificate and a large star with their name on it to be put on our Fun and Fit wall !!!
