School-age Clinics are a great way to gain and polish new skills. Enrollment happens within the week of the clinic. Check back frequently for updates.
Our classes are built on a four-tier system. Red = Beginner, White = Intermediate, and Blue = Advanced, Navy = Necessary skills for next program, but does not meet age requirement. If you are uncertain about which class to join, please call to visit with us about placement or an evaluation.
Our policy at AAGA is to offer 2 makeups per session for recreational classes. If your athlete misses class, you are able to attend an Open Gym free of charge. Come to the Gym during open gym time and talk to the Front Desk about making up a class. We do not make up missed classes in another instructional class. *Different policy applies if the Gym is closed for a Holiday.
No, barefoot is best! Except for Ninja Core classes – socks and shoes are required for Ninja Core.
Our recreational students are welcome to wear a leotard or any clothing that is comfortable to move around in. Please avoid baggy clothing as that can get in the way when your child is on the equipment. Please avoid articles of clothing that have zippers, snaps, and/or buttons, or require a belt.
If your athlete is enrolled in multiple classes we offer a 30% discount for the second class.
If you have siblings enrolled on the same account, the additional athlete’s classes are discounted 5%.
