Iron Cross Gymnastics equips children with the ability to safely leap and tumble through a variety of encouraging gymnastics classes and camps. Split by age level and gender, weekly gymnastics classes train youth to perform gravity-defying physical feats on tumbling mats and aboveground apparati without previous experience or flying carpets. Children ages 2 to 5 learn to follow direction and share during preschool classes, which focus on enhancing basic motor function and agility as students climb and roll through obstacle courses. For more advanced acrobatic maneuvers, 70-minute boys' and girls' recreational programs help kids ages 6 and up build strength and coordination with routines on trampolines and the tumble track. Girls hone balance and agility with special practice on the uneven bars and beam, and boys receive special instruction in the rings, parallel bars, and beard trimmer.
For kids seeking a week of afternoon acrobatics, summer camps engage children weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a bevy of gymnastics training and traditional camp activities including crafts, games, and rivalries with the weightlifting gym across the lake. Campers should bring lunch from home every day except Friday, when they will celebrate their newfound tumbling mastery with a pizza party.
