The vast majority of all the members at NGTC fall under the category of recreational gymnastics. This category is assigned to all classes that aren't part of the competitive boys or girls teams, or preteam. Following the USA Gymnastics guidelines for Skill Level determinations, our classes start at Level 1(beginner), and progress all the way through Level 4/5 currently.
Our coaches make sure that each class follows the same plan for success. Closely following the USA Gymnastics national guidelines, our classes progress each gymnast through a progression of skills, strengthening and flexibility exercises. This helps ensure that each member at NGTC is progressing and following a pre-determined and logical plan for acheiving success in gymnastics. That way when it's time for them to move to the next level, perhaps with a different coach, he/she will hit the ground running and won't feel she's completely behind and not able to perform those skills.
Regardless of his or her desire to continue with gymnastics into competition, etc., you and your child will appreciate the care and precision our coaches use with each skill. Skills were designed to be taught in a manner that adds a mix of strengthening, flexibility, confidence and actual physical technique to keep the gymnast safe while learning fun and exciting exercises. If those skills are taught sloppy, of if proper form isn't addressed on a daily basis (each class), your child may be asked to perform a skill at a point in the future and not have the strength, flexibility or confidence to perform it and end up getting hurt to some degree. That is why all our coaches are so attentive to details and simply won't progress a child into a level he/she is truly not ready for.
Gymnastics is one of the most physically demanding and mentally challenging sports around. And nearly all those that attended a quality gymnastics program will tell you they wouldn't trade it for the world and would do it all over again.
