We definitely want to encourage safety first and enjoyment in gymnastics. If your child is enjoying gymnastics, then they will improve faster. Encouraging stretching while watching TV and games to make building strength fun is a good start!
With our preschool aged children we discourage moving up into a class with older kids. We keep our classes small enough that our instructors should be able to push your child at their skill level while in the age appropriate class.
Yes, you can. Come do a trial class and check with your doctor before signing up, but many of our pregnant mommies have done this class. The teacher can do the spotting of your little one; your main job is to try and keep your child with the class group and participating as best as possible.
Gymnastics, Tumbling, and ParKour are like most sports in that there is no exact timeline as to how fast a child will progress. There are many factors that influence how fast progress is attained. There are factors that are more difficult to control such as coordination, strength, flexibility, power and body size. Then there are factors more easily controlled such as attendance, focus, work ethic, dedication and perseverance. Kids wanting to progress faster should consider attending more than 1x/week, attend flip flop shops to improve back handsprings and attend open gym to practice extra on skills needing more work.
The simple answer is any form of dance is beneficial to confidence in movement and coordination/grace, but ballet is the foundation of all dance and is very beneficial to the basics of gymnastics as well as other sports. Ballet can sometimes be slow moving, but is just what the “coach” ordered…
Gymcats has knowledgeable & reliable staff that care about the gymnasts safety, health, and self esteem. It’s a great and safe environment to learn gymnastics!
We have been going for almost 2 years now and we love it! We love working with “Miss Laurel”. She pushes her students to perform to their best while respecting their limits. My daughter has shown consistent improvement. I love the personal attention she receives and her training is tailored to her strengths and weaknesses. Small class size and a big gym makes for the perfect combination. The instructors are willing to work with our schedule. It’s so conveniently located! I can’t wait to start my son in a couple months.
My daughter goes to Gymcats in Lehi and she loves the instructors there. She has improved a ton. I would recommend Gymcats to anyone who is interested in having their child do gymnastics.
We love Gymcats. It has helped my daughter progress so much. We love the environment, and also her coach & coaches that she has worked with. We’ve been attending Gymcats for quite some time. This is the place to bring your kids for an awesome experience and more so progressive learning in gymnastics.
My daughters love this gym! It is a great facility with great coaches and small class sizes. So happy to have found it!
Excellent facility. Coaches are encouraging and friendly. My daughter loves it here. I like that they have the proper equipment to avoid injuries. They also have a very nice parent viewing area.
