Why Take Gymnastics?

Some professional educators say that the greatest benefits of gymnastics training for children are physical:  the amazing strength and flexibility, the terrific balance, and the awesome power.  Other experts say the benefits are mental:  the unbelievable focus, the awareness of knowing where they are while spinning and flipping, the poise, confidence, and concentration used to safely perform skills and the perseverance and desire to keep trying.  Which is right?  Without a doubt they are both right.  In fact, gymnastics also helps children learn successful habits that will last throughout their lifetime.  Wow!

What You Value is What You Get
The G. O. Academy staff has developed lesson plans and daily rotation schedules that allow them to better focus on what is most important, which is teaching your children.  These weekly lesson plans are designed to help your children learn new skills and perfect their current skills while our daily rotation schedules help ensure that your  “Stars” enjoy participating on all of the Olympic events.  You won’t get this in P.E.

Carpooling Made Easier
This is a great opportunity for you and your children to carpool with your friends and neighbors by offering different levels of classes on the same days and at the same time.  This is more convenient for you and fun for your children.
