Gymnastics Academy Programs
A progressive fundamental first learning structure provides for continuous growth and development of gymnastics skills on all Olympic events. These classes are for ages 6 to 17 years. A rotational system will expose the students to bars, beam, floor dance and tumbling. Different sizes of trampolines, mats and “The Pit” are also used for safe progressive lesson plans.
With regular testing, students move through 7 levels of accomplishments.
Charter Oak Gymnastics has long been recognized for offering superior competition programs. Our primary goal is to develop and emphasize the child’s self-esteem.
We believe we cannot maximize a child’s potential unless they feel good about themselves.
