Welcoming place that engages each child
As an introduction to gymnastics, Jubilee Gymnastics offers a range of classes with a clear emphasis on the joy of movement. The program is designed for children ages 18 months - early teens. Our goal is to encourage confidence through exercise, develop strength, flexibility, and coordination and most of all have lots of fun! Classes are structured, but not rigid so that children can channel their physical energy, while learning to socialize with other students in a safe and fun environment. For our Tumbleweed, Jitterbug and RolyPoly levels, the circuits are creatively themed and change every 2 weeks. All classes focus on 2 main gymnastics events per class. The program is designed to follow a progression of age appropriate skills and you can join in anytime.
Our classes typically begin with an opening cardio warm-up and sometimes an activity/song designed to facilitate participation and creative movement. Following the opening activity, we lead the class into “circle time” for some focused gymnastics instruction. Here our gymnasts learn the gymnastics positions, follow the instructor’s specific directions, and stretch out their muscles. We then move on to the Circuits or Obstacle Courses. This is where your child will transform into a Gymnast before your eyes. You will see them Jumping, Balancing, Swinging, Strength Building, and Tumbling their way around our skill circuits. Our classes typically end with a fun and challenging closing activity or game using props like the parachute, rhythmic ribbons, balls or hula-hoops.

I have done gymnastics from the age of 4 all the way through college. I competed competitively from the age of 6 through 20. I started coaching at the age of 14 and have taught every level from mom and tots through level 8. I love how confident this sports makes young children and I hope to pass that along through my coaching. I love to watch these young children over come obstacles and achieve their goals and I hope to help guide them along the way! I have 2 children a boy and a girl and I try to tell them nothing is impossible with hard work and determination. The word CAN'T is not allowed in our house and i'm going to try to get it out of the gym too!!!
