Recreation & Tumbling:

Glastonbury Gymnastics is proud to offer many classes that follow the progression guidelines developed by USA Gymnastics.

The emphasis of our recreational gymnastics classes is on individual skill development in tumbling, floor, balance beam, vault, and bars.

Children must be 5 years old by the start of the session. Our classes are divided by ability level to ensure that all gymnasts progress in a safe and appropriate manner.

Beginner (USAG Pre Level 1)
Everyone enters the program at the Beginner level. The basics of gymnastics are taught at this stage. After gymnasts have mastered a forward roll, backward roll, and cartwheel they pass on to Advanced Beginner (USAG Level 1).

Beginner Classes are offered:
Tuesday 3:30pm-4:30pm **
Wednesday 4:10pm-5:10pm **
Wednesday 5:15pm-6:15pm **
Thursday 3:30pm-4:30pm **
Friday 4:10pm-5:10pm **
Friday 5:15pm-6:15pm **

Advanced Beginner (USAG Level 1)
Gymnasts enter Advanced Beginner after they have mastered a forward roll, backward roll, and cartwheel. After gymnasts have mastered a handstand, round-off, backbend, and have the strength to do one pull-up with their chin passing above the bar they advance to Intermediate.

Advanced Beginner Classes are offered:
Tuesday 3:30pm-4:30pm **
Wednesday 4:10pm-5:10pm **
Wednesday 5:15pm-6:15pm **
Thursday 3:30pm-4:30pm **  
Friday 4:10pm-5:10pm **
Friday 5:15pm-6:15pm **

Intermediate (USAG Level 2)
Gymnasts enter Intermediate after they have mastered a handstand, round-off, backbend, and have the ability to do one pull-up with their chin passing above the bar. Intermediate is the highest level of our recreational program.

To be eligible for the Glastonbury Gymnastics Club Pre-Team (USAG Level 3), gymnasts must be able to do a backbend kick-over, handstand limber-stand, 3 pull-ups with the chin passing above the bar, a pull-over mount on the bars, and one split.

Intermediate Classes are offered:
Wednesday 4:10pm-5:10pm **
Wednesday 5:15pm-6:15pm **
Friday 5:15pm-6:15pm **

** A combination class where children are grouped according to their ability level. Children will be tested on the first day of class to determine their ability level.
