Pre-School and Kindergarten Programs
Davis Diamonds Gymnastics' goal is to facilitate the development of basic motor skills and coordination with play-based learning. The focus for the younger children is teaching spatial awareness, socialization and simple gymnastics skills. As children grow, the focus moves on to more intricate motor and gymnastics skills. Through the use of unique games, encouragement and structure we strive to make our classes rewarding for all levels. Specialized preschool equipment makes learning safe and fun and gives students a chance to use and develop their skills as they climb, jump, swing and tumble. Our frequently trained coaches keep classes small and friendly to give each child a chance to shine.
The following classes for preschoolers use a structured class format that includes warm-ups, circuits, games, use of trampolines, tumble track and foam-filled "pit". Circuits, include small beams, bars, hills, blocks, tunnels, hoops etc.

Students are enrolled in their class for their chosen day of the week. A student may take more than one class per week and rates are based on the hours of enrollment. Example: a Jr. Flyer class (45 mins) one time per week would be $61.00 per month, adding a second Jr.Flyer class for the same student, would be $112 per month charged at (1.5 hrs). We do not currently offer on-line registration. Registration is accepted in person or by phone with a credit or debit card. Payment is accepted at registration. Make-up classes must be scheduled with the front desk prior to the day of attendance in order to ensure that we have a safe coach to student ratio and space available in the class.
