What are our Recommendations for Gymnastics for Kids?
For weekly classes or frequent practices, we are always looking for the best Gymnastics places and classes nearby in Plano and around Collin County. Let’s answer some of those big questions and provide our recommendations for you!
How much does it cost to get into gymnastics?
Many Gyms will offer a trial class to see how you like it, and some have bulk discounts for blocks of classes or a monthly commitment. A class will usually vary from $14 – $21 with higher costs for competitive gymnasts of $150 – $300 per month.
Don’t forget to include the cost of travel for meets and equipment and clothing.
When should a child start gymnastics?
Toddlers can begin at age 2 with an introductory-level class session which focuses on developing strength and flexibility, as well as good listening skills. It will also help youngsters become comfortable with the gym equipment — and the often discombobulating sensation of being upside down!
Generally, the class will start with a warm-up that often includes stretches and other exercises. Gymnastics for both men and women requires flexibility, and this is something that even elite competitors work on constantly. Many programs will make warm-ups a set routine so that eventually students can take turns leading the warm-up. After, the class typically moves on to instruction and practice.
If you think your kiddo has some talent and this might be a long term thing or might hopefully turn into a college scholarship one day, you want a USAG accredited gym
It’s a popular activity for Girls and Boys and you’ll see Male Coaches with Classes specifically for Boys at all age levels.
