Shooting Stars

This class is only offered to students personally invited, based on ability. Generally, students are promoted from the Beginners class when coaches believe they are ready.

The Shooting Stars are our non-competition team and practice one day, two hours a week, learning key elements they will need for competitive gymnastics in all four Olympic events, including vault, balance beam, uneven bars, and floor. Though this team does not compete, they learn a mix of things from both the Advanced Intermediates and Rising Stars competitive teams, building strength, flexibility, confidence, and having fun at the same time.

The goal of a Shooting Star is to learn a Roundoff backhandspring on the floor, as well as many other difficult tasks. While competitions are not involved, students and coaches work to set, and reach, a variety of goals that can help students attain goals that exist both in and out of the gym.

The Shooting Stars are coached by Coach Nick Nelson.
