Transition 2s was created for 2 types of Discovery students. The first is a child who has been in our Discovery program for a long period of time. They are comfortable in the gym and not afraid to leave their parents. They are comfortable with the instructors and gymnastics activities and can work independently for a short time on an activity and don’t “usually” runoff.  Typically this child is between 32-36 months of age. The class is designed to TRANSITION the child to full independent participation in a group. To accomplish the transition, we ask that the parent assist in getting the child started in the class, then step out of the activity area to allow the child to participate independently while being close enough and attentive enough to jump back in if the child runs off, appears afraid, or seems disengaged.  The parent may need to step in and out throughout the class multiple times with the eventual goal of the child participating completely on their own, which is required of them to participate in our 3-year-old program.

The second type of child that can be accommodated in this class, is an early 3-year-old who has NEVER been here to the gym and may be a little timid to step boldly into a very loud, very large, and very stimulating environment.  If the coach feels that having the parent assist will create a safer emotional environment for the child and not be overwhelmed, we recommend this setting.  We want your child’s first experiences in our program to be positive, caring, fun, safe, and encouraging.

Placement in this class requires a coach’s recommendation.

Advanced 4s is for 4-year-old children who have been in our preschool program for a long period of time. The curriculum will be somewhat challenging and the distance from their parents will be far enough that they may not be able to see you easily. We DO NOT want this experience to be traumatic to your child in any way. We DO NOT want your child to feel anxious about either the curriculum or their separation from you. For that reason, the coaches who work with your child will provide you with a recommendation into this class if they feel your child is not only physically, but also emotionally and socially ready for this challenge. We are looking for children who are very comfortable in the gym, not afraid of being away from their parents for a full hour, no anxiety with not having regular visual verification of your presence in the facility, and full engagement in the activity. Advanced 4 classes are taught our level 1 recreational curriculum, which places them beyond the physical preparedness of a 4-year-old walking in our door for the first time. It is in this class that instructors can identify if your child exhibits some of the elements of a gymnast, such as high energy, fearlessness, strength, and flexibility. But, for placement in this class what we are really looking for is a child that is not afraid to go on their own into the main gym area (which is quite a distance from parent viewing) and participate fully in gymnastic activity. Advanced 4s move on to advanced 5s, or if identified as a candidate for our developmental program they may be invited to Tiny Twisters (for girls), or to D Boys (for boys).

Like advanced 4s, Advanced 5s is for 5-year-olds who have been in our preschool program for a long period of time. They may or may not be potential competitive gymnasts, but they may be bored in a preschool class that is teaching a curriculum that is very similar to what they may have already learned as a 4-year-old. Unlike a 5-year-old child walking into our program for the first time, this group of children has a complex gymnastics vocabulary, and are capable of performing the body shapes such as straight body, hollow body, tuck pike, straddle, lunge, etc., and some level of competence on the gymnastics apparatus. Advanced 5s are also taught level 1 recreational curriculum and they too must be comfortable enough in the gym to leave their parent for an hour without anxiety. Again, your child’s physical, emotional, and social welfare are all considered in making this recommendation into this accelerated learning environment. From Advanced 5s, coaches identify energy level, fearlessness, strength and flexibility for recommendation into either Level 2 recreation, or Super Twisters (girls) and Hot Shots (boys), which are both gymnastics developmental programs geared towards future participation in our sport.

Tiny Twisters is the perfect class for 4 and 5-year-old girls who have been participating in our advanced 4s classes. They seem to love gymnastics and demonstrate some natural gymnastics ability. We also like to see parental support of their child fully engaging in the gymnastics program. These classes meet 2x per week for an hour each time. The curriculum is based on Level 1 and 2 recreational lesson plans and is intended to accelerate the child’s progress. Tiny Twisters can advance to Super Twisters.

Super Twisters is for 5 and 6-year-old girls who demonstrate some natural gymnastics ability. Super Twisters are selected from Advanced 5s classes, or from Tiny Twisters. These classes meet 2x per week for 1.5 hours each time (3 hours per week) – a slight increase in time over the Tiny Twister program. This developmental program helps the child and the parent to decide if your child will move on to our competitive gymnastics programs. They can choose from our tumbling and trampoline team (TNT), Xcel competitive recreational program, or our Junior Olympic (JO) program. For the Junior Olympic program, your child would go onto HOPES team. Typically placement in the girl’s HOPES program takes place in November each year in preparation to enter competition in the fall of the next year.

We offer a HOPES team program for both boys and girls. The purpose of this program is to prepare the child for competition. These groups meet twice per week for 2 hours each visit. Qualification for HOPES programs includes identified potential talent, the intense interest of the child, and parental support/endorsement of potentially entering competitive gymnastics within a year of placement in the program.

Girls: The girls are selected for HOPES in November, and compete for the first time at mini-Olympics (late April) as a level 2 gymnast. This initial judged competition is followed by 2 additional in-house mock meets in May and June where they attempt to achieve a qualifying all-around score of 34.0 to be invited to compete for Discover’s Level 2 team. Level 2 competitions begin in mid to late August. During the summer months (June through August) this group of girls will begin to train 8 hours per week.

Boys: Boys are selected for HOPES in late April/early May. They will begin training 8 hours per week in June, through December and will compete for Discover Gymnastics in late December/early January along with our other competitive boy’s levels.

Xcel is a USA Gymnastics sanctioned program that was designed for recreational gymnasts who want competition experience. Xcel is now offered in Texas for both boys and girls. The levels of advancement for girls are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. Boys have 3 levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Xcel athletes can change over to the Junior Olympic program if there is a commitment to more time in the gym. Jr. Olympic participants can also switch to Xcel if they want to train fewer hours but still compete in gymnastics.

Xcel Bronze = Level 2 JO

Xcel Silver = Level 3 JO

Xcel Gold = Level 4 JO

Xcel Platinum = Level 5/6 JO

Xcel Diamond = Level 7 JO

The Junior Olympics Program (for both boys and girls) is the primary competitive sanctioned program governed by our national body USA Gymnastics. The Jr. Olympic program is the official path to the national team, where athletes may eventually qualify to compete for our country. Jr. Olympic programs move upward from level 1-10, followed by the elite levels (Hopes, Jr. and Sr.) – which are determined by age. Girls can technically begin competing at level 1, but Discover begins competition at level 2. Boys don’t begin competition until level 4. Boys between levels 1 and 4 CAN begin to compete in the Xcel program and transition to JO Level 4. For more information on our competitive programs, please contact the General Manager, the Head Competitive Team Coaches.

Placement on our competitive Junior Olympics programs is by invitation only.

We offer a number of tumbling and trampoline classes for any student who wishes to participate for every level from beginner to advanced skill level. Many times girls interested in cheerleading or boys interested in parkour, free running or martial arts like to acquire the gymnastics tumbling skills to incorporate in other activities. Additionally, we offer a competitive tumbling and trampoline program. T&T, as it is commonly known, is also a program administered by USA Gymnastics. These competitors can elect to compete in one or all 4 competitive events, which include: Individual Trampoline, Synchronized Trampoline, Double Mini-Trampoline, Power Tumbling. Both boys and girls can participate in all 4 events.

Placement on our competitive T&T team is by invitation only.

Invitational only Pre Team style class for our gymnasts that have worked their way through the recreational courses and are ready for a little bit more. These gymnasts will be invited up from Level 3 Girl’s recreational class. This class will meet twice a week for 2 hours each class. Students will also participate in the Skills Meets that run Nov-April. Skills Meets are low-cost competitions that require minimal travel and allow the gymnast to show off specific highlighted skills. Learning about the competitive experience is part of the curriculum of this invitational pre-team style class. Prep 4 is a great introductory class for gymnasts considering the XCEL Team route, or for gymnasts who want to do a bit more without the full-time constraints of team.
