Red River Valley Gymnastics offers a wide variety of recreational classes for boys and girls ages 5 to 18.  Children of all abilities can learn gymnastics skills on our state of the art equipment though our Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced, and Tramp & Tumbling classes.

We recently implemented a new program to help enrich and reward our gymnasts called the Outstanding Student Program. When a gymnast goes the extra mile they may receive the Outstanding Student Award. With this award comes a prize that they will choose from a prize box. Outstanding moments could include learning a new skill or exhibiting exceptional listening skills during class. Recipients will have their name entered into a monthly drawing and if their name is chosen, their profile will be featured on our Outstanding Student Award of the Month board.

Girls Beginner 1

Girls beginner 1 is designed specifically for our five to eight year old female gymnasts. It has been created as a transitional class for children moving from the “Preschool Gym” to the “Big Gym”. In this class the children will do fun themed warm-ups followed by activity in the “Big Gym” area. The gymnasts will also be using the equipment in the “Big Gym” area for learning more advanced skills. These are great classes for beginning gymnastics as well as gymnast currently enrolled in the program.
