Children's Instructional Gymnastics Program
Whether you want to learn how to tumble, get some exercise or just have fun, you will find something that meets your gymnastic needs here. No previous experience necessary. We have friendly experienced instructors who will provide children with guided instruction on various events to improve comfort, flexibility, and strength while giving positive reinforcement. We pride ourselves on providing a quality program that is fun and safe. Each class will be led by two enthusiastic instructors to ensure everyone participates and receives positive corrective feedback. On the first day of class, there will be a parent/guardian orientation that we encourage all parents to attend. If you or your child is a person with a disability and desire assistance or accommodation, please notify Steven Trotter.
You must REGISTER online and payments can be made online or in person at 142 McComas Hall with cash, credit cards or checks prior to the first day of class. Please make checks payable to: Treasurer of Virginia Tech.
