Flying High now offers an even wider variety of Boys Gymnastics classes!
Whether you’ve got a boy who is looking to compete in gymnastics some day, or one who simply has seemingly endless amounts of energy to burn, this is the program for you! This program is offered to boys coming out of our Big Dippers classes, all the way up to our competitive team! The classes concentrate on building proper gymnastics basics on the Floor Exercise, Pommel Horse, Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars, and Horizontal Bar, while participating in high energy classes, designed to send them home - tired! There is a strong emphasis placed on conditioning and strength building, as that is the basis for several of the USAG Men’s Gymnastics skills. Boys in our program will learn the importance of combining goal setting & self discipline with fun & enthusiasm!
Meets for 55 minutes. This class is for boys, 1st grade & up. Similar to the Gym Star Boys class, boys will begin to learn the basics in this class. Focus is placed on the foundations of all events, strength building, and energy burning activities. Boys will proceed to Rock Stars II when they are comfortable on all apparatus, show sufficient strength and body awareness, and have proven that they can work independently and follow direction.
Meets for 1 hour & 15 minutes. This class is for boys who have mastered all of the Rock Stars II skills and have proven their ability accept challenges and work toward goals. In this class, boys are building on the skills they’ve already mastered and are developing more complicated gymnastics skills. Gymnasts must show determination, discipline and a commitment to gymnastics in order to graduate from the Intermediate level. After all skills at the Intermediate level have been learned and perfected, boys may choose to continue with recreational gymnastics, and join our Advanced Boys class, or work towards becoming a member of the Boys Competitive Gymnastics Team, and join our Pre Team class.
Meets for 1 hour & 30 minutes. This class is for boys who have mastered all of the skills from the Intermediate Boys class, and are not yet committed to working towards being a member of the competitive team. Boys in Advanced Gymnastics are performing high-level gymnastics and can continue to be challenged for years to come. They do not learn routines, but continue to develop advanced gymnastics skills and sequences. This exciting class is sure to keep your young man coming back for more.
Meets for 1 hour & 15 minutes, twice per week. When students have mastered all of the skills from the Intermediate Boys class and have shown motivation and dedication to the sport, they are invited to join our Pre Team class. In this class, students will begin to learn the USAG Men’s Gymnastics competitive routines on each event. Coaches will expect that students of this class will work hard to become members of the competitive team.
Meets for 2 hours. This class is designed for boys ages 12 & up who are planning on, or already are competing in high school (IHSA) gymnastics. Our program is year round and is designed to help these young men build strength and endurance, while learning more complicated gymnastics skills.
Meets for 2 hours, twice per week. Flying High’s newest addition to the gymnastics program is the Men’s Competitive Team! Boys are invited to be members of the team after having shown focus and willingness to learn in our Pre Team program, as well as having mastered the gymnastics elements of that class.
