BGK1 Curriculum
Bars, Beams, and Trampolines
IVGA has it all!

Our School-Age Recreational Gymnastics Program
is for kids 6-18yrs

Every class experiences all four Olympic events:
vault, bars, beam, tumbling, and trampoline just for fun! 
Gymnasts begin by being exposed to the basics of gymnastics, from there they build a strong foundation of skills, which help them to progress to higher level gymnastics.

For safety reasons, gymnastics instruction is skill based, not age based. Students must master at least 80% of the curriculum before moving on to the next level. In our experience, it takes approximately 6-18 months to master each level.

If you are unsure of which level to register, please contact our front desk for a recommendation or to schedule an in-person evaluation.
