NUAGA has a variety classes available to boys and girls from toddler to competitive.
Recreational Classes (2 to 10 years)
This level of gymnastics is geared toward gross motor development in a fun non-competitive setting.
Gymnasts will participate once a week in their class of choice. Participation in their age based class does not
require the completion of any skill testing. Rec classes are a great start to teach young gymnasts to move and
interact with other children in a safe, fun environment. Emphasis on large-motor skills and learning some basic
gymnastics poses/skills! Focus on basic tumbling techniques and beginner skills on all women's
Olympic apparatuses and trampoline.
Gymnasts in these levels work on the conditioning, flexibilty, safety and technique of each skill. They are evaluated at the end
of each session and progress through the levels based on ability.
NUAGA will now be switching to levels 1 to 3 instead of beginner-advanced. We will have an all-new testing system and
lesson plans. Gymnasts will no longer select days! Gymnasts will sign up for their appropriate level and may attend any/all of
the practices offered.
NUAGA girl’s & boy's program is a non-competitive gymnastics and fitness program which has been designed to offer a
fun, safe and progressive way to learn gymnastics fundamentals. A specific curriculum of skills is set for each level and each event
(vault, bars, balance beam, floor and trampoline). You can tailor your classes from once a week up to 2-3x/week. The goal is to
develop basic skills for a long lasting career in high level gymnastics.
