THE LIGA PROGRAM

The LIGA Program has been developed to provide gymnastics instruction tailored to both your child's age and his/her ability. Beginners are welcome to join at any stage in our program. Our goal is to not only develop  your child's ability but also their self-esteem and confidence in an empowering enviorrment. Within each class, groups are made based on age and ability with a 7:1 ratio to ensure individual attention and skill progression. Long Island Gymnastics Academy's wide range of programs includes:


  • MOMMY/DADDY AND ME: Ages - 12 months to 3 years

These classes are designed for the youngest students in our program, and parents are along for the ride! With your help we create an environment in which toddlers can learn and explore through play.  They will develop fine and gross motor skill as well as coordination, as the learn to tumble and jump. Through introduction to colors, numbers, and letters they will learn letters they will lern language development, self expression, and early problem solving.  Their spatial and perceptual awareness will increase while they are excepting new environments.  Together we will gently guide them through sharing and learning to cooperate with other children.

  • SEPARATION: Ages - 21/2 to 31/2 years

This program is designed to ease parents and children into the idea of separating from one another for the duration of gymnastics class. Beginner gymnastics skill will be introduced reinforcing balance, strength, and agility. Over time our children will gain confidence and independence and want to participate in class with out mom or dad! As in all of our classes, proper social and listening skill will be strengthened.  They will be encouraged to take turns and follow direction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • PRENASTICS: Ages - 3 to 4 years

At 3 years old your children, seemingly overnight, will develop tremendous energy.  They will no longer be unsteady toddlers, but rambunctious children.  We want to channel their energy while helping them to reach  developmental milestones.  Through structured physical activities we will work on mastering numbers and colors as well as developing our imaginations.  Throughout the program we will consistently use positive reinforcement to develop your childs sense of accomplishment and pride in acheivements.  Their self-esteem will grow while they learn  introductory gymnastic skills such as tuck jump, straddle jump, and forward roll, which will become the foundation of the progress they will make though out our programs.

  • TRANSITION CLASSES: Ages - 5 years

This class is designed to act as an intermediary step that allows the child to seamlessly advance from prenastics into our recreational program. Boys and girls are no longer grouped together although classes are held simultaneously. At this time, we will begin teaching skills such as cartwheel, handstand, and backward roll.  All these will be taught while using safe and seamless progressions in order to develop ability, foster a safe comfortable atmosphere, and maintain a sense of accomplishment.


  • RECREATIONAL CLASSES: Ages - 6 to 17 years

Within this age range children are still growing tremendously, but they are each developing at a unique pace.  That's why our Recreational programs are structured a bit differently then those for our younger students.  Classes are split up into smaller, personalized groups, keeping in mind not only gender-specific disciplines, but varying developmental abilites,  This allows our students to tacle new challenges on their own skill levels.  It also means that we can accept students with beginner, intermediate, or more advanced skill sets and put them on a customized path to success.  

Our instruction will aim to develop a comprehensive set of skill including handstand, forward and backward roll, front and back walkovers, and front and back handsprings.  In this program students will get full access to all of the gym equipment.

Many students take our Recreational programs over multiple years.  With that kind of dedication we can make a real difference in strength and ability but also in social and mental conditioning.  As our students feel more and more comfortable over time we encourage maintaining attention and concentration by asking them to manage emotions, and increased willingness to take on roles of leadership.  We have limited availability for boys over the age of 5, so please contact us before the semester begins to express your interest in one of these classes.  

  • DEVELPMENTAL /ADVANCED GYM: Ages - 9 to 17 years (Invitation Only)
