WVGTC Preschool Programs



WVGTC PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS ARE FUN WHILE LEARNING ESSENTIAL SKILLS TO MOVE FORWARD IN MOTOR MOVEMENT & GYMNASTICS.


These programs are designed for children 1.5 years - 5 years of age. Basic motor skills and gymnastics are combined with some game activities. These skills are taught on Balance Beam, Vaulting, Bars, Trampoline, Tumbling stations & many specialty stations in a FUN environment. The students will be exposed to some activities accompanied by music. Specifically the areas of balance, coordination, spatial awareness, following directions, taking turns, independent decision making, etc. WVGTC has a large viewing area for parents to conveniently observe there gymnast in action. A concession stand is available for refreshments and snacks.

Each student will be evaluated once in class to determine the most compatible class and/or group best

suited for their progress and the students in an existing class. Class directors and/or instructors have

been asked to follow these procedures to help keep the classes efficient and progressive.



PRESCHOOL PARENTS & TOTS PROGRAM


The Parents & Tots program is designed for children 1.5-2 years of age.  This program is a learning experience for the children & parents. The basic format is for the instructor to teach the children through and with the parents. For example- the instructor may demonstrate various skills to be performed on multiple stations using one or more of the students. The instructor will show the parents the correct way the skill is to be performed and the proper assisting technique the parent will need to guide the student through the skills and stations. Once this is accomplished the parents then will rotate from station to station with their child and the instructor will monitor and assist the parents in the various areas as needed. The same principle is applied to group activities. These classes are 1 hour lessons and will have a maximum of 10 students per class. (EVERY STUDENT IS TO HAVE A PARTICIPATING “PARENT”.)






PRESCHOOL GYMNASTICS PROGRAM


OUR MAIN STREAM PRESCHOOL PROGRAM  is designed for children 3 years – 5 years of age. The WVGTC staff teach the classes directly with classes of students with a 6 to 1 ratio. WVGTC uses a multiple station system (circuit system), in most situations, to help eliminate as much waiting time between each students turn as possible. However, there are some skills and stations that are best taught in a group and also may need the instructor to assist each student individually for safety and proper learning technique. The students are taught the specific areas of learning listed above in a FUN gymnastics oriented atmosphere. WVGTC is blessed to have a state of the art facility and specialty stations for our preschool students. The preschool students will participate in our annual “PRESCHOOL EXHIBITION NIGHT” in May.

SUPER TOTS PROGRAM

This program is entered by invitation only. WVGTC students 3.5-5 years of age are selected & invited to work toward more advanced tumbling & gymnastics skills. The Super Tots Program is also designed to occasionally take part in exhibition type performances along with our competitive teams. The students in the Super Tots Program will also take part in our annual and “WVGTC DAY OF CHAMPIONS” (May). All Super Tot members attend two 1 hour classes per week.


DEVELOPMENTAL TEAMS

Individuals interested in participating in our competitive team programs should express such an interest to the WVGTC office or instructors and complete an evaluation request form. Students are scheduled periodically for testing sessions and may be invited to become a part of our developmental team. The developmental team trains approximately 5 hours per week and work flexibility, conditioning, and skills which are included but not limited to the USA Gymnastics compulsory program. WVGTC has developmental teams for both boys & girls.

This group is designed to accommodate those gymnasts considering competitive gymnastics.
