Advanced 4/5’s

Advanced 4/5s is for 4 and 5-year-old children who have been in our preschool program for a long period of time. The curriculum will be somewhat challenging and the distance from their parents will be far enough that they may not be able to see you easily. We DO NOT want this experience to be traumatic to your child in any way. We DO NOT want your child to feel anxious about either the curriculum or their separation from you. For that reason, the coaches who work with your child will provide you with a recommendation into this class if they feel your child is not only physically, but also emotionally and socially ready for this challenge. We are looking for children who are very comfortable in the gym, not afraid of being away from their parents for a full hour, no anxiety with not having regular visual verification of your presence in the facility, and full engagement in the activity. Advanced 4/5s classes are taught our level 1 recreational curriculum, which places them beyond the physical preparedness of a 4 and 5-year-old walking in our door for the first time. It is in this class that instructors can identify if your child exhibits some of the elements of a gymnast, such as high energy, fearlessness, strength, and flexibility. But, for placement in this class what we are really looking for is a child that is not afraid to go on their own into the main gym area (which is quite a distance from parent viewing) and participate fully in the gymnastic activity. Advanced 4/5s can move onto level 1, or if identified as a candidate for our developmental program they may be invited to Tiny Twisters (for girls), or to D Boys (for boys). Placement in this class requires a coach’s recommendation.

Hot Shots is for 5 and 6-year-old boys who demonstrate some natural gymnastics ability. Hot Shots are selected from Advanced 5s classes, or from D-Boys. These classes meet 2x per week for 1 hour each time (2 hours per week) – a slight increase in time over the D-Boys program. This developmental program helps the child and the parent to decide if your child will move on to our competitive gymnastics programs. They can choose from our tumbling and trampoline team (TNT), Xcel competitive recreational program, or our Junior Olympic (JO) program. For the Xcel Program, your child would begin at the bronze level. For the Junior Olympic program, your child would go onto HOPES team. If you are moving into the Boys JO program, the Xcel program, or TNT, selections for placement into these competitive programs take place in late April/early May, with the intent to compete the next January.

HOPES Team

We offer a HOPES team program for both boys and girls. The purpose of this program is to prepare the child for competition. These groups meet twice per week for 2 hours each visit.

Girls: The girls are selected for HOPES in November, and compete for the first time at mini-Olympics (late April) as a level 2 gymnast. This initial judged competition is followed by 2 additional in-house mock meets in May and June where they attempt to achieve a qualifying all-around score of 34.0 to be invited to compete for Discover’s Level 2 team. Level 2 competitions begin in mid to late August. During the summer months (June through August) this group of girls will begin to train 8 hours per week.

Boys: Boys are selected for HOPES in late April/early May. They will begin training 8 hours per week in June, through December and will compete for Discover Gymnastics in late December/early January along with our other competitive boy’s levels.
