Preschool gymnastics consists of a 45 minute class where your child will be assigned a teacher for the entire class. During preschool gymnastics classes we focus on basic gymnastics skills, strength, and flexibility on all Olympic events. We incorporate trampoline and tumbling along with fun games and props to increase coordination and gross motor skill.
Each student progresses at their own pace as they build a strong foundation for gymnastics and physical activity. Preschool gymnastics is also a great way for students to make friends, practice social skills, and work on listening, following instructions and paying attention as they get ready for school.

Our regular gymnastic classes consist of a 45 minute class where your child will be grouped based on their ability. These groups will then rotate through the events of the gym with the coaches staying on their event. We do this because we have coaches who specialize on those events so you child will get the best help within that particular event. Your child will rotate through events like trampoline, floor, tumbling, bars, beam and rings. The classes will focus on basic gymnastics skill that will lead to more advanced skills as your child progresses.
During the year we will have several parents vising days to watch your child's class and the progress they are making leading up to the end of the year Gymkhana performance and trophy presentation in May.

Although Crenshaws has broken away from the traditional gymnastic studios by offering many different programs, quality has always been the number one concern. Over the years, the gymnastic team has participated in state, regional and national championships. Crenshaws has been proud to have had many gymnasts who were members of the United States Junior National Team. Many of these students have earned scholarships to colleges and universities. With over 60 on staff and well over 1600 strong in membership, Crenshaws has truly risen to the top as one of the largest and most innovative facilities of its kind.
