Tiny Tots (3-4 years)
This fun filled/high energy class is designed to keep your young ones happy and healthy. Balance beam, bars, trampoline, and obstacle courses are among the favorites with this age group. Independent enough to attend classes without parents, children in this age group still learn best in a structured environment where gymnastics activities are combined with a healthy dose of fun!

Girls Squad Prep (USAG Levels 1-8 & FIG)
Our Squad Prep classes focus on skill development and routine performance, based on USA Gymnastics (USAG) guidelines. Participants learn skills of all USAG compulsory levels in addition to optional level 8 on all four apparatus (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise). Each level has a more difficult set of skills to learn, and only once the lower level is perfected the child can advance to the next. Our Little Stars squad competes in several UAE gymnastics tournaments throughout the year.
A select group of Elite gymnasts that show dedication and potential are moved to FIG Artistic Gymnastics program.
Boys Squad (USAG Levels 4-7)
This program provides training and competitive opportunities male gymnasts. It is based on the USAG Junior Olympic Program and is organized into ten different levels of training. We start with basic skills experienced in levels 1-3 and progress developmentally with each competitive level 4-6. The compulsory Level 7 is designed to encourage and prepare the gymnast for the transition from compulsory to optional routines by providing skill direction and which can be used as the basis for entry level into optional routines. The optional levels 8, 9 and 10, require the gymnast to fulfill most FIG requirements or the JO modifications for those requirements approved for the program.
