"Self-Esteem Through Movement"
Stroup's Gymnastics is dedicated to providing the best facility and instruction for gymnasts and related sports that we possibly can. It is our desire to consider and meet the needs of each individual student safely and successfully in a group setting. Classes have a maximum student to teacher ratio of 8:1.
Lightening Bugs - This class is for
independent children ages 3-5 years old with little or no gymnastic experience. This class introduces group learning, developmental stunts and skills, basic tumbling and gymnastics.
Children must be potty trained and able to be in class without parents.
Stars - These classes emphasize basic tumbling
with an introduction to the equipment. Gymnasts should expect to work
towards mastering basic skills while developing strength, flexibility,
coordination and agility. Progressions are safe but challenging.
No experience necessary. For
girls ages 5 - 8 years old.
Sparkling Stars - These classes are for girls ages 5 - 8 years old who have had some gymnastics, are more energetic, and desire more gymnastic time. Emphasis is put on skill development on all equipment, with some attention to strength and flexibility.
Fireflies - This class is for older girls (ages 9 and older) with little or no gymnastic experience. Basic skills are taught at a pace geared for older girls. In addition to skill acquisition, students will also work on strength and flexibility.
Gym Stars - This is a tumbling class with the emphasis on skills needed for other sports, such as cheerleading, karate, and diving.
Shooting Stars - These
classes are by invitation only. For students who show ability and
appropriate attitude. Gymnasts will travel to and compete in the New
York State Junior Olympic competitions. Those who are invited
to join our Junior Olympic team will have the opportunity to be among the
many state champions we have trained. It is a larger commitment by
both the gymnast and the gymnast's family. This
level of achievement requires more parent involvement, and some
volunteer work for the benefit of the gym and competitive team.
