The Little Athletes Preschool Gymnastics Program begins with our Tots Series which is designed to incorporate the earliest aspects of physical fitness and primary development for children ages 12 – 40 months. Using creative play and nurturing instruction, caregivers and their toddlers are introduced to the magic of movement in gymnastics. Our one-of-a-kind facility provides access for the littlest hands and feet to explore gymnastics equipment sized just for them. Activities are developed with caregiver/child bonding in mind and are rooted in sound physical development of small, but growing bodies. Tumbling Tots provides a place for gentle separation. The goal is to build their confidence and move them toward independence in the gym. An adult must accompany each child to all Tumbling Tots classes.
Drop in Saturday & Sunday from 9am-9:55am so your little ones can jump and play like the big kids in the “Jumping Zone”! Parents/caregivers are included in the fun at no additional charge.

Flip & Twirl
This exciting class combines the strength, balance and power of gymnastics with the focus, coordination and flexibility of dance. Children learn the basics of gymnastics, pre-ballet and creative movement. The class consists of 35 minutes of expressive and explorative dance plus 40 minutes of progressive gymnastics and neuromuscular training.
As toddlers progress through the series, their physical and social confidence grows towards readiness for our Little Athletes Preschool Series which begins with our first separation class. Children enter the gym with their instructor, while parents and caregivers watch from the viewing mezzanine. Our instructors nurture young athletes as they learn to participate in the group setting, while providing appropriate challenges to each child for a great sense of accomplishment. Acro-Kats is for 3-year-olds ready to enter the gym on their own, follow directions and keep up with the class. However, some young 3’s need a little more time in the gym with a caregiver before moving into our Acro-Kats class.
Our preschool athletes build a foundation in gymnastics and self confidence while having fun. Children learn age-appropriate skills on the same equipment and spaces that the “big kids” use.
