Girls Fliptastics gymnastics is designed for girls 1st grade and older.
Girls will focus on the women’s apparatus; learning skills on vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise. as well as Tumble Trac and trampoline. Typically the lesson plan each week will include three of the events as well as warm up and cool down activities.
Girls first grade and older will be placed in a Fliptastics class based on their skill level. Each level will focus on skills appropriate to that level. We offer classes for children 3rd grade and older; however they are not limited to those classes only, they can register in any Fliptastics class of their level. Children 1st and 2nd grade are restricted from enrolling in the 3rd grade and older classes.
At this level we focus on the very basic skills on each of the event,> These include: forward rolls, cartwheels, handstands, on floor; casts, pullovers and strength on bars; and on beam we will focus on basic walking and jumping and developing greater balance and control. We also incorporate drills designed to increase strength and overall level of fitness.
