Flips Gymnasts begin at the age of 18 months, with our preschool lessons continuing through age 4. Our Preschool Program lessons are fun, active, and consistent, as we teach our little gymnasts the very beginning skills of gymnastics using age appropriate equipment.
As our students enter the Kindergarten years, they will transition into our Kindergym Program, where Coaches will prepare them with basic gymnastics skills needed before entering our Level classes. These classes still offer much movement, appropriate for the development and energy levels of this age.
At Flips Gymnastics, our Level Program is a non competitive and skill progressive program adapted from Levels 1-4 of the USA Gymnastics, Junior Olympic manual.
Our recreational program is divided up into 4 levels for both boys and girls. Progress is measured each week with "star charts". Our level programs begin at age 5. We also offer Tumbling Classes for athletes that wish to improve their floor skills. Tumbling only classes are offered beginning at age 7.
In addition to our recreational classes, we offer USA Gymnastics' Competitive Programs in both Women's Junior Olympic and XCEL, beginning with our Girls' Pre-Team program. Newly added is our Boy's Pre-Team! For IHSA gymnasts, we have two separate groups of off season training programs, available for all abilities, beginning with Jr High Students.
In addition to our gymnastics training, we host Birthday Parties, Summer Camps, Winter/Spring Break Camps, Open Gyms and Field Trips.
Whatever the age, ability or goal, Flips Gymnastics has the right program for your child!
