Can I enroll right now, or do I have to wait until the next session starts?
We offer open enrollment year-round, which means you may enroll your child into classes whenever you would like! You do not have to wait until the start of a new session to enroll. We do pro-rate tuition if starting mid-session.
If my son/daughter joins class now, will he/she be behind all the other students?
Not at all! Each of our classes is designed for a specific age group and skill level. When a new student joins a class, they will begin right away working on the skills for the specified level with the other students. Each other student in his/her class is working on those exact same skills! Any student who has mastered the skills of a specific level has already moved up to the next level.
What programs do you offer for a 3 year old? 4 year old? Etc.....
You any find detailed class information on our current schedule which is located under the Recreational Gymnastics tab, which indicates the appropriate age range for each of our classes at Gym Kinetics.
Is there a break in between each session?
Throughout the year, we have two break weeks: Winter Holiday Break and Back to School.
Can we watch a class?
Yes! We have viewing rooms available and you are more than welcome to come and watch a class in action!
Can I come in to take a tour or look at the gym?
Yes! You are welcome to come and take a look at our facilities during our office business hours. Our office staff will be able to show you around the gym or give you a tour if you would like.
Does my child have to wear a leotard?
No..we do not require leotards. They can wear any gym type clothing. No jeans, No tights and No jewelry! Hair must be pulled up.
What is the evaluation process?
At Gym-Kinetics, being evaluated for the next level is a HUGE deal! The evaluator will take the child through a list of skills required on each event, and assess the level of mastery that has been achieved. If a child is ready to move up, they will get to ring the bell and the end of class, while ALL athletes in the gym cheer and clap for them!
Why are children placed by age but move up by skill?
Gym-Kinetics bases their class age groups on the developmental stages that occur naturally in child development. Each class has a skill sheet that lists each skill necessary to progress to the next level. All children learn/attain skills at different rates. Once a child is able to complete all skills successfully on the list, they are ready to proceed to the next level, regardless of age.
What if my child needs extra practice?
Be sure to evaluate the special events bulletin board located in the lobby. We offer flip flop clinics once a month. Also, on specific holidays we offer skill clinics all the time. Skill clinics are good for backbend work, cartwheel/roundoff, back hip circle, etc.
