We have joined with FlipStar to offer gymnastics classes! Their coaching staff is dedicated to teaching your child gymnastics and social skills in a fun, safe and positive learning environment. The program attire recommended for girls include a leotard with any long hair tied in a ponytail. For boys, a T-shirt and shorts are recommended. No gym shoes, jeans, jewelry or tights. Register at the Park District Offices for reduced rates.
This is an interactive class between parent and child where the child will develop physically and socially. During the class, parents will assist the child as they work through a circuit of gymnastic skills on equipment designed for their tiny bodies. Warm-up activities, balance, climbing, swinging and jumping are a few of the activities your little one will enjoy.
The structure of this class will expose young gymnasts to basic gymnastics skills while building confidence and independence. For most young gymnasts, this is their first experience without supervision. The one-hour class will follow a circuit format, while learning skills such as rolls, cartwheels, strength and flexibility. Coaches are patient and correct with positive reinforcement.

Our recreational cheer classes are a great way to introduce your athlete to the sport of cheerleading. Athletes will learn level appropriate skills including but not limited to cheers, dance, jumps, motions and beginner stunts. This 14-week session will end with an in-house competition between all our locations. In our 55-minute classes, which are held once a week, coaches follow a detailed lesson plan to ensure that each student is learning while having fun. During the last class of the session, students will showcase everything they learned. The Ignite In-House Recreational Competition is OPTIONAL. If your athlete chooses to compete, there is a $50 competition fee and a $160 uniform fee. Uniforms remain the same until your athlete grows out of it (normally two years). To participate, you need to also register with Ignite at ignitecheerleading.com. You will then receive a waiver and parent handbook which explains in detail payment for uniform and practice expectations. Registration is now being taken. Class will be held on these additional days due to conflicts: Tuesday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 23.
