Recreational Evaluations:
This school year we are excited to introduce Skill Achievement Sheets to replace our evaluation system. In the recreational program, students will be assessed on their skills based on their class level. As students achieve skills, the instructor will date the skill and the student will place a sticker on their skill sheet. We hope that this will involve our students more in their learning process and will help them stay motivated to learn and try hard on the skills they are still working on. Although students may already have skills on a certain event, they will continue to be practiced and perfected throughout the year to maintain the skill. After completing all skills on the events, students will be able to move up when a coach signs off on their skill achievement sheet. At that time, skill achievement sheets will be taken home by the student. Encourage them to hang them up and be proud of the accomplishments they have made. To see a sample skill sheet, see the windows above the cubbies.

Ribbon Skills:
In addition to our Skill Achievement Sheets, we are also introducing “Ribbon Skills”. These skills are KEY skills in the development of any gymnast. When their skills are achieved, students will receive a ribbon for that skill and will be able to take it home with them. To see samples of the ribbons, see the windows above the cubbies. We can’t wait to see all the ribbons that are earned!

Bulletin Boards:
Please see the bulletin boards located around the gym for more information regarding your child’s classes!
