Kiki's Gymnastics uses a skill-based progression, which closely adheres to USAG standards, by having all of our students work off of specifically designed skill cards for each program. The skill cards give gymnasts a strong foundation of basics before they move on to higher levels. We believe it is imperative to develop our gymnasts in a safe and structured environment in order to be successful at higher levels. Our skill development includes progressions on each event and trampoline, plus flexibility and strength training activites. We use the skill cards as a base to determine when your child is ready to advance.
