Recreational Gymnastics Classes
Salto Gymnastics is proud to offer quality recreational programming to families interested in learning gymnastics in a non-competitive environment. The Active Start and CanGym programs exist to help young aspiring athletes learn the fundamental movements of sport while building a love for physical activity in a fun and safe setting.
Active Start Classes - Ages One to Six
Active Start classes are designed for children ages one to six. The program includes parented and unaccompanied classes which focus on the development of gross motor functions. Registration for Active Start classes is based on age rather than ability.
MAT MICE | AGE 1-2 - A forty-five minute parented program where children learn through play and discovery. Very basic gymnastics and gross motor skills are developed while establishing group-work and sharing concepts.
GYMINY CRICKETS | AGE 2-3 - A forty-five minute parented program that expands on basic gymnastics skills including hangs, rolls and jumping. With the help of parents, this class includes more structure and starts building independence in a fun and themed environment.
ROMPING ROOS | AGE 3-3.5 - Similar to Gyminy Crickets, older participants achieve success in this forty-five minute class which begins parented and transitions to unparented when each child is ready. The class focuses on encouraging greater independence, increasing problem solving, and continuing development of the dominant movement patterns. Children participate in warm-up games, three activity rotations, and a closing song.
KINDERGYM | AGE 3.5-4.5 - In small classes, coaches lead groups through activity circuits that will develop dominant movement patterns. Coaches encourage continuous activity and movement challenges so children experience success. Children will develop a strong foundation of movement skills which easily transfer to more advanced gymnastics as well as other activities and sports. Kindergym classes include a fifteen minute warm-up and fifteen minute rotations on three gymnastic events each week.
JUNIOR GYM | AGE 4.5-6 - Developed for a wide range of gymnastics ability, Junior Gym has four levels from beginner to advanced preschool gymnastics. The hour-long class is structured to keep young bodies busy while teaching safety, structure and team work.
CanGym Classes - Ages 6 and Up
The CanGym Program exists to develop a love for gymnastics in young, aspiring athletes. CanGym classes focus on fun, fitness and fundamental skill development. Registration for the CanGym program is based on skill-level. New registrants are encouraged to register for Burgundy/Red classes unless they have been assessed by a Salto instructor and approved for a higher level.
