What is Skills Camp?
A Skills Camp provides a focused, two-hour training on one or more areas of gymnastics. This two-hour camp provides an opportunity for gymnasts to have more time in the gym to perfect current skills and learn new ones. Skills Camps include: Tumbling Camp, Bars Camp, and Team Camp.
What is Tumbling Camp?
Tumbling Camp will focus on the fundamental tumbling skills that work to build to back handsprings and beyond. Gymnasts will be put into groups according to their skill level. They will begin with forward rolls, back rolls, handstands and cartwheels. Once they master these skills, they will work toward roundoffs, back handsprings, back tucks, and much more.
What is Bars Camp?
Bars Camp will work to build upper body and core strength while building the fundamental skills on bars. Side stations will work the strength and shape needed to perform bar skills. Stations with coaches will work bar skills such as chin up pullovers, back hip circles, and a variety of dismounts.
What is Team Camp?
Team Camp is offered to current team members as well as our Gold and Advanced Gold Girls Gymnastics students. This will allow the current team gymnasts to get in some extra practice, and current Gold and Advanced Gold gymnasts to experience what competitive team practice is like. Gymnasts will be split up according to level and rotate to each Olympic event as well as a tumbling rotation.
Does my child need to be enrolled in class?
What is the minimum age for Skills Camps?
Ages 5+ or Level Bronze and above.
Who can attend?
Boys and girls ages 5 and up.
How will the groups be split up?
By age and skill level. We will have a coach evaluate the skill level of your gymnast when camp starts so he or she can be placed in the appropriate group. As your child progresses, he or she can promote to a more advanced group.
What is the ratio of gymnasts to coaches?
10 kids will have at least 2 coaches with them at all times.
Can I pick one camp or do I have to sign up for all three?
More gym time equals more progression. We encourage you to enroll your child in as many camps as they want to attend. All of our camps will benefit each other in unique ways. Bars camp will help your gymnast’s floor, beam, and vault skills. Tumbling camp will benefit bars, beam, and vault. Strength and Flexibility camp will build a stronger, more well-rounded athlete.
