Niles YMCA offers new gymnastics program

Published 9:05 am Monday, December 21, 2015

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA recently announced that its gymnastic program will take on a new fundamental focus this session.

The classes are designed for children ready to learn the fundamentals of gymnastics in a progressive program.

As a child progresses through a series of gymnastic skills and creative movement in a friendly, exciting environment, they will gain safety knowledge and confidence while building balance and core strength.

The continuous learning environment targets age-appropriate strength development and enhances each child’s current skill to progress in their gymnastic knowledge, experience and personal development.

The following classes will be offered beginning the week of Jan. 4:

• Parent/Toddler (ages 18 months to 3 years) — Tuesdays, 5:15 to 5:45 p.m.

• Fun & Flexibility (ages 3 to 4 years) — Thursdays, 5:15 to 5:45 p.m.

• Confidence in Motion (ages 4 to 5 years) — Thursdays, 6 to 6:45 p.m.

• Junior Gymnast (ages 6 to 8 ) — Tuesdays, 6 to 7 p.m.

• Agile Acrobats (ages 9 to 12) — Private or semi-private lessons only

Registration is now open.

The Winter 1 session is seven weeks long, from Jan. 4 to Feb. 20.
