Recreational Program Assistant Manager: Chelsea Booher

OGA’s preschool program is designed to develop a child’s gymnastics skills as well as foster socio-cognitive growth within a positive, energetic environment. Our structured lesson plans offer developmentally appropriate gymnastics that incorporates learning-based games, songs, and activities to teach fundamental gymnastics skills. Additionally, gymnasts will acquire skills transferrable to school and playground atmospheres including improved balance and coordination, confidence, and knowledge of how to fall safely.

Our preschool program is for children ages 2-5, and initial class placement is based on age. As we do not have sessions, feel free to join a class anytime!
