At Bright Stars Academy, once your child enters Kindergarten, they will be part of our school-age program. At this time the girls and boys classes are generally split into based on age and level criteria. All of our carefully thought out classes are designed to foster your child's love of physical fitness and gymnastics in a fun, challenging environment.
Based upon the premise that ALL children benefit from training their young bodies and minds, emphasis is placed on body awareness, speed, agility, flexibility and strength. Classes are modeled after the USA Gymnastics level progressions. The athletes will train on the actual gymnastics apparatus for their level and gender.
Gymnastics training enhances many other sports, including soccer, football, dance, basketball and track. "Fast twitch' muscles, necessary for explosive speed and quickness are naturally awakened through vault and floor training. Early training in upper body strength can be crucial for the future diver, pole-vaulter or baseball star, and can begin with early gymnastics training.
