Hot Shots is a lead into our Developmental Program by an introduction to gymnastics with focus on coordination and strength.
We want our students to develop a passion for gymnastics and understand the connection between hard work and improvement. At Peninsula, we are also teaching our athletes much more than the sport of gymnastics. Life skills that we emphasize are setting goals, overcoming obstacles and working as a team. We also stress self-confidence and self-discipline. It is our belief that our students will continue to utilize these tools outside of the gym and for the rest of their lives.
There are three main areas that we aim to develop:
3) Mental Discipline
With a continued focus on strength and flexibility, students will begin learning Level 3 skills. Students will be challenged to develop mentally and physically for success as a competitive gymnast.
Tiny TOPs (4-6 years old)
TOPs (Talent Opportunity Program), is a national talent search and educational program for female gymnast ages 7-11 and their coaches. During the months of June and July gymnasts are evaluated on physical abilities at the state and regional level.
Our Tiny TOPS class is designed to prepare students for a future in the TOPS program. Students will be selected for this advanced program based on their age, physical abilities and desire to learn gymnastics.
