Which class should I sign my child up for? When will my child move up to the next class level?

Children under 6 years old go into our Preschool category of classes, where class level is determined solely by age. They’ll move up through the class levels as they age until they reach six years old.

Children 6 and up can join our Recreational classes. New students should start at Beginner Girls 1 or Beginner Boys. These classes include detailed skill evaluations (except during Summer classes and Mini Sessions) to determine how each student is developing, what they need to work on, and when they’ll be ready to advance to the next

level. Every student progresses at their own pace, and it’s normal to stay at the same level for a while!

Tumbling classes and Adult Gymnastics do not have different class levels and do not include skill evaluations.

If your child is coming from another gymnastics program and you think they may already have the experience needed for a higher level class at the GRC, contact our management at gymnastics@pdop.org to discuss your situation and potentially have your student evaluated. Remember that different programs may approach things differently!
