MISSION STATEMENT

At Leap Gymnastics, we believe in providing quality instruction in a safe, fun, and wholesome environment.

OUR GOALS INCLUDE:

1. That each child will leave the class having learned something new or perfecting a previously learned skill.
2. That each student will develop an awareness of safety, which is essential for participating in our program.
3. That each student will show respect and give encouragement to their classmates and teachers.
4. That each student will feel a sense of accomplishment and gain self-confidence through their participation in gymnastics.

We are a recreational gym, focusing solely on teaching progressive gymnastics skills in a fun, safe environment. 
​Instruction will be provided on a variety of equipment, including the bars, balance beam, vault, air track, and floor.

Things to know about being a gymnast

• Gymnastics is fun, but it can be dangerous if rules are not followed. Always listen to the coach's  instructions, and never goof off.
• Come dressed like a gymnast. Boys wear a tight fitting shirt and gym shorts. Girls wear a leotard with their hair pulled back. No jewelry or socks.
• Please be on time because the warm up period is for your safety.
• Use the bathroom before class so you don't miss important directions or miss the fun.
• If you are sick or hurt, let me know.
• Gymnastics is hard work. Don't worry about making mistakes. It takes lots of practice to be a good gymnast.
• Your parents may watch, if you'd like, but you may not speak to them during class without the coach's permission. Make sure your brothers and sisters do not play on the equipment during class.
• We should always be kind to the other gymnasts in class. Everyone will be making mistakes, and we should not laugh. We also need to take turns being first.
