Gymnastics is an excellent way for children to gain confidence and build self-esteem while improving their strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance; plus, gymnastics helps develop self-discipline, time management skills, focus, and concentration. The skills children gain from participating in gymnastics will continue to benefit them for the rest of their lives. Come join us at RGA, where we’ve been cultivating our classes to best serve you and your child since 2003.
TINY TOTS -PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAM
New Classes Starting Soon! Call the gym to register 336-610-4742
Our pre-school program uses a well-rounded curriculum designed to help develop balance, strength, flexibility, gross motor and social skills. We encourage active participation to teach children that they can be successful, that learning is fun and that they should always get up and try again.
Our lesson plans introduce basic gymnastics fundamentals, as well as developmental and age-appropriate skills. We do this by holding our tumble-bug classes when the gym is not full of other classes. This helps in safety and concentration.
RGA Tumble-Bugs program is sized just right for your young, growing athlete. If you have any questions throughout the school year, please feel free to speak with your child’s instructor; the lines of communication are always open!

(18 months–3 yrs)
45 min/week: This class requires parent participation. The instructors work with the parents and the parents take an active role in their child’s development. The structure of this class focuses on gross motor skills such as hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, jumping, running and balancing using gymnastics equipment. This class is the perfect time for parent-child bonding.
45 min/week: This is the first class without parent involvement; listening skills, following directions, cooperation, and participation are encouraged and nurtured. This class focuses on basic gymnastics skills and encourages names of positions and independent movement. The fun-themed lesson plans help to develop strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance.

What is the Recreation Program? Recreational classes provide an excellent way for children to gain confidence and build self-esteem while improving their strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance. Gymnastics also helps develop self-discipline, time management skills, focus, and concentration. We believe that the skills children gain from participating in gymnastics will continue to benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Structure: The Rec Program is divided into skills-based classes as follows: beginners and intermediate.
Advancement: The Rec Program is made up of skill levels 1,2 and 3. Athletes are moved up from classes when they have achieved the skills for that level and are showing signs that they are ready for the next level. Quite frequently in this sport, gymnasts need multiple seasons at a given level. We will be testing your athletes on strength, flexibility, and skill at every class. This testing will help the coaches judge the right time to move them up to the next level. The recreational gymnastics classes will offer an “Annual Gym Show” where friends and family are invited to attend and watch the athletes perform routines and skills they have learned.
RGA Offers A Competitive League: The Piedmont Gymnastics League: Athletes will be placed in these classes based on skills. We currently offer competitive gymnastics for bronze- silver-gold and platinum. Athletes will compete in all 4- Olympic Apparatus with 3 to 4 events held within our league per year. A minimum amount of instruction hours per week must be met to compete. Classes are offered on various days, please see an office staff if you are interested in joining the Competitive team. The competitive season is generally December through May.
Competitive Teams are 2 hours per week level 1
Minimum 3 hours per week level 2
Minimum 6 hours per week level 3
Minimum 9 hours per week level 4 and up
**Some students in competitive classes may choose not to compete. If a student does not meet the minimum hours required, they can not choose to compete. Students that miss several classes during the competitive season will not be allowed to compete.**

**Kids under 7 will be placed in an intro to tumbling unless they are advanced. Regular Tumbling classes are 1 hour of strenuous drills and skill and are not ideal for most athletes under age 7. Beginners that do not have cartwheels, round-off, handstands, forward rolls to stand and bridges must be in Intro to Tumble classes only.**
The goal of our homeschool program is to make gymnastics an accessible way for children to explore movement, fitness and physical activity while maintaining a fun, positive environment. We seek to promote gymnastics as an avenue towards a healthy and active lifestyle.
