School-Age Gymnastics

School-Age Gymnastics

At I-Power School of Gymnastics, we strive to instill self-confidence, strength, responsibility and develop our students INDIVIDUAL potential.

We enhance their I-POWER! We believe that gymnastics is the greatest sport in the world. Participation in gymnastics not only develops character in it’s participants, but the skills learned in gymnastics set a great foundation for future athletic development.

Gymnasts at I-Power range from exuberant 2 year old boys and girls to highly skilled competitive athletes that train up to 20 hours a week. We are fortunate to have the most competitive program in the Champaign-Urbana area.

We teach kids to work hard while having loads of fun!

We are a school of gymnastics, so we operate just like any other school of education. We offer 4 quarters of class, each 10 weeks long. Participants can join year-round, as class prices are always pro-rated. Our School-Age students are placed in classes by ability level and also keep a small instructor ratio to be sure that they are getting lots of personal attention with hands-on spotting.

At the end of each Quarter, (10 weeks) students are issued report cards and achievement ribbons for participation. For school-age students mastery of 75% of their report card skills is required for class promotion. At the end of Quarter 2 and 4, we hold a Recreational Student  Showcase where our students are invited to participate and perform routines learned in class for friends and family. While families can take classes for any quarter that they choose, we do encourage year-round participation to achieve the best results from the sport.

We host a full summer session of classes, but also offer half and full day summer camps all summer long!
