Weeks Five & Six
School Age Rec
At the end of week 5 there will be no more skill assessment logging until next session. Week 6 will mark the beginning of some less structured weeks of class. Weeks 6-8 are designed to keep kids from growing tired of similar skills and rotations. Skill acquisition will still play a primary role but our methods will evolve. These weeks allow our knowledgeable coaches to show off the individual talents they bring to the class. This is a great time for coaches to experiment with new drills, games and coaching techniques.
Week Five - Climbing Week
This week we'll be harnessing our inner monkeys!
Week Six - Jumps & Tucks
Week six we focus on the tuck position - knees bent up to chest. We're also doing lots of jumps and adding jumps to some of the skills we've previously worked on such as making our forward rolls into dive rolls.
A Message From Miss Ashley
Recommendation cards will be issued for all pre-k classes in Week 6. Class recommendations for these classes are based on the age of your gymnast. If you child's birthday falls within the dates of the spring session you have the option of signing them up whichever class you feel would be a better fit. We will recommend the class we think will best fit your child based on their skills, independence and personality.
Coach Luke's Corner
New Recommendation Cards
This session we will pass out a recommendation cards in Week 6. School-age recommendation cards will now include an assessment of your child’s skill acquisition. We hope these new cards will do a better job of showing you how far your child has come!
Our evaluation skills are not the only indicator of what class will best fit your child. These skills help give us a better idea as to which class they will thrive in but there are a number of other factors your child coa. After all, being in the gym is more than learning a dozen gymnastics skills; we hope your child will take home some life skills while they’re at it!
Each card will come with a personal comment from your gymnast's coach. As always feel free to stop us after a class and ask how things are going. Communication is an important part of a healthy working relationship between coach, athlete and parent. Feedback from parents is enlightening and encouraged!
