OOA provides children 12 months old through kindergarten an opportunity to develop an enjoyment of physical recreation by transferring thoughts and ideas into movement. We offer a safe, fun, age appropriate environment for each child to develop their own abilities. The skills of tumbling, swinging, balancing, jumping, rhythm, and eye-hand coordination are all included in our sessions of gymnastics.
Some of the psychological qualities that are developed through the sport of gymnastics are: high self-esteem, physical courage, determination, perseverance, expressiveness and self confidence. The skills also teach how to deal with frustration and focus on the skill at hand. The discipline required to master each skill will be carried over into all areas of the child’s life.
Make-Up Policy: Similar to college class, your tuition pays for a class spot regardless of attendance. Therefore, we strongly urge students not to miss their scheduled class if at all possible. Make-ups are a privilege not a policy. OOA, as a courtesy, will offer 1 make-up per 8 week session if the make-up is available and will not jeopardize the safety or integrity of a class. All make-ups must be made during the current 8 week session you’ve registered for. You must contact the office to schedule your make-up. If a make-up is not available (other classes full) an Open Gym Pass (1 per session) will be available for class missed. (Please check our Open Gym Schedule) Refunds and Credits for missed classes are also not available. Please notify the office if you know you will be missing as early as possible to allow someone else to schedule a make-up or trial class in your child’s spot.
