Joey and Me Gymnastics 
Age 6 - 18 months

Our Joey and Me Class is a parent-assisted class which is designed to acclimate your infant or toddler to the gym, the feel of the equipment, allow them to explore the gym space with guidance, and provide social interaction with other children and adults. This class teaches the parents how to properly guide the child in a safe manner.  As the child progresses in age, more structure is added, allowing the child to become comfortable and able to transition to a class alone.


Leaving the Pouch 
Age 18 months - 2.5 years 

Our Leaving the Pouch Class is a parent-assisted class which is designed to help your child work on basic locomotives, balance, and hand-eye coordination as they explore the gym and equipment with guidance. Plus your child will benefit from social interaction with other children and adults. As the child progresses in age, more structure is added, allowing the child to become comfortable and able to transition to a class alone.


Happy Hoppers 
Ages 2.5 - 4.5 years 

The Happy Hoppers class is for children ages three and half to four and a half years old. This class focuses on introducing fundamental movement, basic tumbling and gymnastics skills in a structured environment. Instructors and coaches will work on cultivating the child’s fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and listening skills. The structured curriculum is skill-driven and aims help the student progress in their ability and knowledge of gymnastics. Please choose your class day and time.


Marsupials 
Boys Ages 6.5+
Girls Ages 6.5+ 

Your child will advance through a level system that starts with basic skills, maneuvers, and terminology and progresses to more advanced Gymnastics. With a focus on goals and achievement, your child will feel accomplished with each new skill and passing level. Please contact our Gymnastics Director and Head Coach Tony Cortright with any questions at 203.235.6386.

Arrival and Pick Up 

We have new protocols for arrival and pick up. 
Arrival:
  • 5 minutes prior to class, an instructor will meet each student outside, take and record their temperature, then radio their arrival to a second instructor in the gym.
  • The instructor will take a different unique code word from each parent for pick up; along with an emergency number.
  • Students must have a mask on to and from the walk into the gym, but can take it off once inside the gym.
  • Students are expected to arrive in their class attire and will place any belongings in the separated cubbies.
  • If a student is late, they will not be permitted inside as both our instructors need to attend the class.
  • Parents will not be permitted to stay and watch, but will be able to view a live stream of the class from their phone. (Parents are allowed in the parent and child classes.)
Pick Up:
  • Students will be walked outside where their ride should be waiting.
  • Each pick up will give their unique code word and the student will be released.
