Our recreational students (Kindergarten and above) are placed into class based on age/skill. While age is the beginner guideline for how our classes are organized, our curriculum allows for flexibility that acknowledges that children develop at different rates. Blaze’s curriculum is taught on a continuum, allowing students to move at their own pace. Monthly evaluations are low stress and allow the coaches to track the athletes’ progress awarding them a ribbon when they master the skills for that event. Progress to the next class is achieved when all ribbons from the previous level are earned and they are awarded a certificate. If a student has gymnastics experience prior to attending Blaze, please contact us and we would be happy to schedule an evaluation to determine the most appropriate placement for your child.
