Age Requirements: Preschool (3 yrs by Sept. 15) – Kindergarten
30-minute class - 1 time per week
KinderGym is designed for development of tumbling and trampoline skills, hand-eye coordination, and over-all fitness. Circuits and stations assure that they are always moving.
While age is the general guideline for how our classes are organized, our curriculum allows for flexibility that acknowledges that children develop at different rates.

Tumbling & Trampoline
Age Requirements: 1st grade and up
Our Tumbling & Trampoline program is directed towards FUN and FITNESS while building gymnastics skills in a safe environment. Tumbling and trampoline is an excellent sport for children, whether they stay in the sport for years or choose other sports as their athletic focus. Winterset Gymnastics is part of the AAU's Positive Coaching Alliance and feels strongly about coaching for success in gymnastics, but more importantly, coaching to teach life lessons through the sport of gymnastics.
Our tumbling and trampoline program has 2 class levels:
Cartwheels, Handstands, & Flips focuses on foundational tumbling, cartwheel combinations, round-offs, running tumbling, proper handstand position, and the beginning progressions for learning a front tuck. There are no prerequisites, but athletes will need to demonstrate body control progressions to be permitted to work on flips.
Handsprings & Flips emphasizes back handspring technique and flip progressions. Prerequisite: Demonstrate strong handstand technique and round-off snap-up.
During our school year session, students in these classes have the option to attend 2 local competitions (Winterset & Truro). Details upon registration.
