dynamic doers class

Preschool Players

At this age, your child is ready to come in and participate without a parent!  We begin teaching the concept of lifelong healthy living through exercise, along with building a foundation of skills, strength, and coordination on a variety of different apparatus — all in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment.

Age Range:
3 – 4 years

Parent Involvement:

Skill Goals:
Coordination, strength building, gymnastics

Class Duration:
50 minutes

A typical class:

Students come together in a circle to introduce themselves and meet the instructors of the class.  Our warm-up for this age group is done in an exciting, interactive way, including running and jumping as a class in a variety of different ways to a different fun song each week.

After a good cardiovascular warm-up, we then learn several stretches focusing on individual parts of the body.  In this class, we do a fun activity that we call “animal walks.”  Our students pretend to be animals like bears, frogs, crabs, bunnies, and more, while simultaneously learning coordination, building strength, and developing gymnastics skills

By now the student’s bodies are fully warmed up and ready to learn their skills for the week. Students split into smaller groups where they learn and practice a single skill one-on-one with an instructor.  Typically children will rotate groups and learn up to three different skills in a single class.  Skills include fun coordination/strength-building activities such as monkey bars or climbing the rock wall or cargo net, as well as beginner gymnastics skills such as handstands, trampoline, tumbling, and more!

The instructors finish class time with an obstacle course (we build a different one every week!) that is specifically designed for the children to learn balance, build strength, and develop their coordination.
