YMCA Swingers Program

In the Swingers class, children 5 to 6 years old continue to learn basic gymnastics skills and gain confidence.  During the 60-minute class, gymnasts warm up with basic motor skills and stretching.  Then they work on some beginner gymnastics skills on floor and vault and negotiate obstacle courses.  Gymnasts also develop strength, balance, and focus with increased use of the high beam and bars.  Swingers classes have a student:teacher ratio of no more than 7:1 and focus on independent movement, muscle control, and body awareness.
