VIRTUAL GYMNASTICS CLASSES
HCP&R will be offering a virtual gymnastics class beginning September 5. The class will be held on Saturdays from 7:15 until 7:45 pm on Zoom. The registration fee will be $34 per month, or $9 per session. The class is open to ages 3 and up. If we get more than 6 participants at the same time, we will add another time slot and separate into groups by age. If anyone wants a second class, we will be happy to add more days and times as well. Parents are welcome to watch and/or participate with their kids if they would like.
The goal of this class is to prepare children for gymnastics by teaching proper warmup and stretching techniques, as well as conditioning, flexibility, and drills. While we are limited without actual equipment, there are still some important and fun exercises we can do before the indoor spaces open back up that will help make progress in the gym easier by creating a strong foundation. The 30-minute online class will focus on strength and basics instead of actual skills and will include a 10-minute warmup/stretch followed by 20 minutes of conditioning/flexibility/drills. Although it won’t be quite as exciting as a full gymnastics class, it will definitely help participants understand how the body positions work, and it will help us hit the ground running once we can start classes inside.
Please wear something soft and stretchy that won’t get in the way of your movement. Bare feet or socks are preferred. If you have something soft to sit on (yoga mat, mattress, or a cushion) for floor-based stretching and exercises, that’s a good idea to have as well.
Please contact Coach Paula Shaibani if you would like to enroll. Once you get in touch with her and register, you can pay via PayPal, Venmo or Zelle, or if you’d prefer to mail a check, that works too. She will then email you the Zoom link, and we will be ready to go. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Coach Shaibani.
