What to Expect at Your Child's First Gymnastics Class at Wickers Gymnastics Club! 🤸‍♀️

Starting a new club can seem quite dauntings, that's why we've put together this blog to give you and your child an idea as to what to expect when you start your first gymnastics class with us!

What to expect when starting our Junior Sessions (Don't forget to bring a bag for your water bottle and shoes!):

1. A Warm Welcome: As soon as you arrive, one of our friendly coaches will be at the door to greet you and your child. We want to ensure everyone feels comfortable and welcome from the very beginning. 2. Independence and Fun: We encourage your child to come into the class by themselves, fostering a sense of independence. They will then be guided to remove their shoes and allocated their dedicated coach for their warmup. 3. Get Ready to Warm Up: Before diving into the exciting activities, we start with a 20-minute warm-up and stretching session. This helps prepare their muscles for the action-packed gymnastics experience.

4. Exploring Different Apparatus: In our Juniors class, your child will have the opportunity to explore various apparatus, including bars, beam, vault, floor, and trampette. They'll get to try out a wide range of gymnastics equipment, which adds to the thrill and diversity of their class. 5. Equipment Rotation: To keep things fresh and engaging, we have a 3-week rotational basis for the first piece of equipment they'll work on. Our carefully planned programs gradually introduce gymnastics skills on each apparatus, ensuring progress and growth throughout the sessions. 6. Clear Instructions and Demonstrations: Our coaches will provide clear explanations and demonstrations before each activity, making sure your child understands and feels confident in trying out the skills. 7. Stay Active and Excited: Each piece of apparatus has multiple set activities on separate stations, designed to keep the gymnasts constantly active and engaged. We believe in the power of learning through play and exploration. 8. Fun-Filled Hour: The entire session lasts for one hour, during which your child will enjoy two rotations on different pieces of equipment. It's a fantastic opportunity for them to have a blast while building strength, flexibility, and coordination. 9. Rewards for Participation: We love celebrating our gymnasts' efforts and achievements. Throughout the class, there may be opportunities for your child to earn stickers or awards for their active participation and hard work. 10. Time to Reunite: As the session comes to an end, all gymnasts will gather at the Unit 9 door for collection. It's a wonderful chance for them to share their experiences and excitement with you after a fantastic gymnastics class.

At Wickers Gymnastics Club, we are committed to providing a safe, supportive, and enjoyable environment for your child to discover the joy of gymnastics. We can't wait to see them grow, learn, and have a blast in our classes! If you have any questions or need further information, please don't hesitate to reach out to our friendly staff. Let the gymnastics journey begin!
