At Twigs Kids, children aged 3–18 learn acrobatics on apparatuses such as bars, balances beams, and vaults or participate in instructor-led pool or gymnastics parties in a 20,000-square-foot facility. Boys and girls learn in separate gymnastics classes to prevent the spread of cooties while they work through achievement-based curricula divided into nine levels and loosely based on the USAG Junior Olympic program. Each class increases youngsters’ agility, balance, and self-confidence, providing a foundation for future athletic endeavors. Alternatively, parties bring a birthday celebrant and 10 friends together for swimming or gymnastics led by an instructor. Twigs Kids supplies the tableware and drinks, as well as a water bottle for each child and a T-shirt for the child of honor. While kids play, parents look on and check their kids for bald spots from the upstairs observation deck, outfitted with a café and free WiFi.
Founded in 1972 as a gymnastics club, TWIGS Kids now resides in a sprawling 20,000-square-foot facility staffed by enthused staffers. The gym’s name, which stands for True Winners in God’s Service, reflects its mission of providing gymnastics, swimming, and cheer activities and instruction for kids ages 3–18 in a Christian environment. Cheer and gymnastics lessons simultaneously bolster students’ flexibility, coordination, confidence, and ability to best invisible friends in monkey-bar competitions. Amid the heated waters of Dolphin Cove, teachers and pupils soak their feet while lifting floating barbells and riding noodle floats during swimming lessons. An in-house café welcomes visitors to recharge their empty fuel tanks with refreshing snacks, while a gift shop displays colorful gym attire from designers including GK Elite Sportswear and Melody Leotards.
