Advance Progressive Gymnastics
Athens Clarke Gymnastics Academy Advance Progressive Gymnastics
The Advance Progressive Gymnastics Program is a fun introduction to girls' competitive gymnastics. Athens Clarke Gymnastics Academy's Advance Progressive Gymnastics is designed to prepare gymnasts for the USA Gymnastics (USAG) competitive levels. Girls will learn skills and routines for four events (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise). All students will perform these routines in a special competition (once per class session) where they will be judged and given scores. This is a fantastic way for all of our gymnasts to be able to compete!
Gymnasts entering into our Advance Progressive class for 4 and 5 year old must have previous gymnastics experience and receive a recommendation from their instructor prior to participating in these classes. The Advance Progressive for 6 and 7 and 8 years and older, require a recommendation from an instructor an evaluation for approval for these classes. Practices are held one or two days per week and last 55 minutes to one hour and 25 minutes depending on the level of the class.
Participants are committed for the length of one session. Competitions are held at Athens Clarke Gymnastics Academy located in the Bishop Park Gym once per session. These competitions are held at the end of each respective session. Children are enrolled in an age group based on their age as of September 1 of that school year.
If you feel your daughter is ready for more of a challenge, this program is for her. Evaluations are held twice per year. Once during the fall and once during the spring. Evaluation day is not a drop-in day. Your daughter must either be recommended by her instructor, or if she is not currently enrolled in our program, you must call and reserve a spot for her in advance. Only those students who wish to be considered for either our Advance Progress program or our competitive teams should attend the evaluation. We have provided our Advance Progressive Gymnastics Frequently Asked Questions for your review.
