Recreational Program Descriptions

FUNDAMENTAL GYMNASTICS

The Key City FUNdamental Gymnastics Program is a series recreational gymnastics classes, designed for children ages 5-10. Participants will be taught basic FUNdamental movement patterns and skills that are part of physical literacy, transferring into both gymnastics skills, as well as fundamental sport skills. Key City FUNdamental Program focuses on building confidence in the athlete’s ability to perform fundamental movement patterns as well as developing a strong foundation of basic gymnastics skills. Each FUNdamental class will begin with a FUN focus on physical literacy movement skills and games, which will transfer into the traditional gymnastics portion of the FUNdamental class. Each FUNdamental class is streamed according to age of participants.

Children’s progress will be measured using Gymnastics Canada’s CANGYM program.  Every athlete will receive a report card at the end of each session documenting their progress.
